Lacey Chabert, Brennan Elliott Back Together Again
Many believe that Lacey Chabert and Brennan Elliott are considered the Tracy and Hepburn of the Hallmark Channel. Why is this relationship so great. Lacey was asked this question when she was interviewed on the Build Channel back in 2019.
She responded, “It just works. We’re real friends in real life. We trust each other, which is hard to come by. And, our families are friends. When you trust your scene partner, it makes you a little more willing to try stuff, and it’s like it’s safe to, you know, improv.” She continued, “We collaborate on this and try this little thing. If it works, it’s awesome. If it doesn’t you keep moving on.”
Lacey also added that she and Brennan “make each other laugh.” However, she admits, “I’m sure we drive each other a little crazy too, at this point.” Moreover, she admits that “he’s just a wonderful, wonderful scene partner.”
What drives her crazy? Well, “he loves to improv.” Lacey admits that she does too. But, Brennan takes it next level, because “he just has to have the last word.” That means that the two never stop a scene. “And then, he has to throw something else.” Then, the two get into trouble for running the scene over. Filming Hallmark movies are very precise, and this must mess with a lot of the timing of commercials and scenes. But, fans love the two of them!
