Brendan Penny never wants to stop making branded movies


Brendan Penny is quickly becoming one of the most popular faces on the Brand chain. The Canadian actor has starred in celebratory wellness films on Hallmark for years and he’s easily one of our favorites to watch. From Christmas movies to the beloved Hallmark series Chesapeake Ribs, we always love watching Penny onscreen.

Brendan James Penny grew up in Ottawa, Canada, but did not pursue an acting career until after graduating in accounting. Fortunately, he realized he was not interested in the future of punching numbers and moved to Vancouver where he studied at the Lyric School of Acting. Within a few years, Brendan began to land roles on TV shows like James 2.0, Supernatural, the L word and Kyle XY before making a name for himself playing AJ Varland in the teen TV series Whistler. Various secondary roles in Smallville, Stargate: Atlantis, I love you, Beth Cooper, Poison Ivy: The Secret Society and the police drama Pattern followed before Brendan made his Hallmark debut in Along came a nanny. As we know, it has appeared regularly on the network since.

While Brendan seems like an open book on screen, he actually prefers to keep his family life private, which we can totally respect. He has been married since 2010 and has a few children, but does not post pictures of them on social media. Every now and then he’ll post something nice about them on Twitter, but for the most part he uses his platforms to connect with fans and talk about his latest acting endeavors. It’s actually quite refreshing! I have no doubt that he is an amazing father and husband at home, giving his family the privacy they deserve. But he fully appears to his fans online. He even regularly posts motivational comments to spread positivity, which makes me love him even more.

One of my favorite Brendan projects on Hallmark is the In the vineyard series with Rachel Leigh Cook (composed of Autumn in the vineyard, Summer in the vineyard and Valentin in the vineyard). The films center on the owners of two rival vineyards who eventually find love. As much as i love Christmas Movies, I love these because they add a bit of much needed Hallmark cheer to some of the other seasons of the year. Who doesn’t love a good romance for Valentine’s Day?

“I’ll be making Hallmark films for the rest of my life if they let me,” Brendan explained in an interview with Goodness of television back in 2017.

“They are always the nicest people you can meet. Everyone is there to have a good time, do a good job and do something that makes people feel good. I laughed so much on each of them. this movies. “

His filmography also includes Hallmark TV movies A pinch of love, Magical Christmas Ornaments, Pride, Prejudice and Mistletoe, Easter under the envelopes, The secret ingredient, Beverly Hills wedding and It’s the season of love. He even appeared in The Gourmet Detective series with Brooke Burns. Since 2016, Brendan has become a fan favorite playing Kevin O’Brien on Shores of Chesapeake. In the series, Penny portrayed a veteran returning home to his family, which was a storyline that easily resonated with fans of the series. To prepare his character, he even consulted a former veteran and one of the showrunners of the series, John Tinker.

“He had been [in Special Forces] and made several tours in Afghanistan. I [didn’t want] to impose. He was super nice “, Brendan recalled. “We had a conversation and he answered my questions. He opened my eyes to the work Kevin’s character was doing and I filled in the blanks on what kind of experience he would have had.”

“There’s stuff on YouTube about military surgeons, and it’s intense. I play a character that’s been through so much, I wanted to be as specific as possible and have as much information as possible, so that if it happened [on the show], I could tap into it. I was able to show a lot of beautiful things with Kevin and I hope I can do [more]. “
