Colin Donnell investigates a murder in new Hallmark mystery
Hallmark takes viewers on a trip to Malta in its newest mystery movie. In To Catch a Spy, Nathalie Kellye plays travel writer Chloe Day, while Murin plays her photographer Sara.
Chloe, Sara, and the rest of the team travel to the small island nation in the Mediterranean to cover a story about the newly renovated Hotel Optima. On their first night at the hotel, Chloe overhears an argument in another room. Then, she sees a body plummet to the ground from the balcony above her.
Following the mysterious death, Chloe is quickly drawn into the investigation, as she is the primary witness to the murder. Aaron Maxwell (Donnell) is an FBI agent staying at the hotel to investigate a separate crime at the U.S. Embassy in Malta. But he’s drawn into the hunt for the killer as he and Chloe work together to solve the mystery of who killed the man. It’s a race against time as they work to discover clues and fit the pieces together before the killer finds them. Davy Eduard King and Jonathan Dunn also star.
This isn’t the first time the ‘Chicago Med’ couple has starred in a Hallmark movie together
To Catch a Spy isn’t the first time Murin and Donnell have teamed up for a Hallmark movie. They also appeared together in the 2020 movie Love on Iceland. In that movie, Murin played a woman who travels to Iceland with her podcast producer friend Chloe (Kaitlin Doubleday). Chloe then reconnects with her ex Charlie (Donnell), a travel photographer.
Donnell and Murin also worked together on the NBC series Chicago Med. Donnell played Dr. Connor Rhodes on the medical drama until 2019. Murin appeared on the Dick Wolf series as Dr. Nina Shore from 2016 to 2019.
Colin Donnell and Patti Murin have been married since 2015
Donnell and Murin got engaged in 2014 after falling for each other while working on a musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s Love’s Labour’s Lost in 2013, Us Weekly reported. The couple married in 2015 and welcomed their first child together in July 2020.
Murin, who played Princess Anna in the Broadway version of Disney’s Frozen, talked about her experience with a pandemic pregnancy in an interview with NY1, including how she felt when sh got sick with coronavirus (COVID-19).
“It was terrifying,” she said. “It was the sickest, I think I’ve been in probably my entire life.”
