EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Star Monica Knox Previews Hallmark’s Falling in Love in Niagara!


Jocelyn Hudon and Dan Jeannotte will star in “Falling in Love in Niagara” a new, original movie premiering Saturday, April 20th on Hallmark Channel. We at Survived The Shows had the pleasure of chatting with Monica Knox about her experience on the movie “Falling in Love in Niagara” and a lot more. 

Can you tell us a bit about your character in Falling in Love in Niagara?

Sure! I play the character of Beth, a well-known and respected travel blogger who is visiting Niagara with her fiancé Phil for their upcoming nuptials. 

What initially attracted you to your role in Falling in Love in Niagara?

I love a great romantic comedy and what I enjoyed about Beth was her fun-loving spirit – she’s always up for adventure. I also really loved how the relationship was written between her and Phil (played by the very funny Duane Keogh). And of course, filming scenes with the backdrop of beautiful Niagara was also very appealing!

What do you think makes this movie so special and captivating?

The leads in the film, Jocelyn Hudon and Dan Jeannotte, do a fantastic job. I also think audiences will really enjoy the other main character in the movie – Niagara! There are so many scenic shots and adventures that take place – I think it’s a beautifully shot movie. Marita Grabiak, our director, had a real vision and aesthetic for the movie and it shows in the final product. Did I mention that it has romance and adventure??

What do you hope audiences take away from watching Falling in Love in Niagara?

I hope audiences take away that sometimes in life, you have to take a risk and follow your heart. Not everything goes perfectly according to plan. And if someone really loves you – they love you for all your quirks. Be with the people who appreciate and love you for all that you are.

What was it like working with the rest of the cast on set?

This was the most fun I’ve had on set! I laughed so much and it was because I was surrounded by a really great cast and crew. Jocelyn is a true leader and very warm and welcoming to every cast member. Dan was also a gentleman and great to chat with. I couldn’t have asked for a better on set experience.

What can you tease about your character Journey?

All I can say is that a wedding takes place, and there may be a surprise guest…

What was your favorite scene or moment while filming Falling in Love in Niagara?

Well, there is a scene where all the characters have a fun night out. We head to a Karaoke bar and sing songs and dance, etc. Duane and I had to improvise a little bit of singing and some dance moves. It was hilarious. Nothing planned and very much so improvised. It was a lot of fun.

Change of subject, What have been some of the most memorable projects you have worked on throughout your career, and why?

I have been very fortunate to have worked with some great production companies and wonderfully talented people. I think a highlight for me was working on “The Christmas Checklist”. It was two movies (Part 1 & 2) shot in Montreal, Canada. I got to work with the amazing Sarah Power and also explore the beautiful city of Montreal for 2+ months. I loved the character, she was a strong hispanic woman, juggling work, kids, relationships. It resonated with me so much and I hope for other women watching as well. It was also a really heart-warming story.

Can you tease something about your next projects?

I will be appearing in “The Love Club Moms” which will air in the Fall on the W Network. And you can also catch me in a Hallmark Murder Mystery movie later this year (or sometime early 2025). I can’t reveal too much yet but it is a very different character for me and I’m excited for people to see it when it’s out!

Falling in Love in Niagara with Monica Knox will premiere on Saturday , April 20th on Hallmark Channel.
