Pre-season 4 movie special.

“General Hospital’s” Jack Wagner (Port Charles’ Frisco Jones and Dominick Marone on “Bold and the Beautiful”) will star in a special Christmas movie on the Hallmark Channel, “When Calls the Heart: The Heart of Christmas.” In the film, which airs prior to the fourth season of When Calls the Heart in 2017, an intriguing peddler comes to Hope Valley selling the townspeople his wears and teaching them valuable lessons about joy and giving. When the townspeople realize that the recently displaced settlers in the area will not have a proper Christmas, they come together to create a special holiday celebration for all. A special Nativity presentation from the schoolchildren will infuse everyone with the true spirit of Christmas.

“When Calls the Heart: The Heart of Christmas” airs on December 25 at 9:00 PM. In addition to Wagner the film stars Erin Krakow (“Army Wives”), Daniel Lissing (“Last Resort”) and Lori Laughlin (“Fuller House” and Jody Travis on “The Edge of Night”). Also be sure to catch
