LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, Aug. 5, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Fans of the award-winning series Jane the Virgin can see Ivonne Coll (Alba) in a whole different light. Award-winning theater, film and television actress Ivonne Coll stars in the new Hallmark Channel original film, Love in the Limelight. Starring real-life couple Alexa and Carlos PenaVega, the film premieres on August 6th.

Described by Michael Phillips of the Chicago Tribune as “a stunning actress who continues to deliver breakthrough performances in television, film and theatre,” People’s Choice Award winner Ivonne Coll has received countless awards for her performances throughout her illustrious career more than three decades.

Coll’s first film was The Godfather Part II. Director Francis Ford Coppola sought a nightclub act for the film while scouting locations in Puerto Rico. After meeting Ivonne Coll, he decided to create the role of “redheaded Yolanda” so she could get her first movie credit.

“It was such a different and welcome experience playing a modern day grandmother in an upscale family. My character is on TikTok and is holding a glass of wine instead of serving food in the kitchen. Definitely a more realistic grandmother, not the usual cliche,” Coll said.

Alexa PenaVega (Picture Perfect Mysteries, Spy Kids franchise) and Carlos PenaVega (Picture Perfect Mysteries, Big Time Rush) star in Love in the Limelight, a new original movie which premieres Saturday, August 6 (8pm ET/ PT) on Hallmark Channel premiered and launched the network’s annual programming event, Fall into Love. Inspired by the real-life love story of Willie Aames (Picture Perfect Mysteries: Exit Stage Death, Eight is Enough) and his wife Winnie Hung, the screenplay was written by Aames, Hung and Rich Tabach.

As a teenager, Summer (Alexa PenaVega) was a devoted fan of popular boy band The Mendez Boyz, particularly Nick (Carlos PenaVega), their lead singer. After receiving a sweet fan letter from Summer, Nick decides to answer with a phone call, sparking the beginning of a friendship that lasts to this day. When Nick’s manager books him a gig at a small venue in Summer’s hometown of Salt Lake City, where she now works in human resources at a local university, the two finally meet face to face. It’s clear that their friendship set the stage for romance. Summer breaks things up, and Summer’s grandmother (Ivonne Coll) — a hip granny with a TikTok following — encourages her to follow her heart.

Six original Spanglish songs written by Carlos PenaVega add a rich, Latin sound to the film’s soundtrack: If You Let Me, Someday Somewhere, BASIC, Vamos Pasar La Bien, Fall Again and Por Ti. Pena Vega is currently as a member of the popular group Big Time Rush on a national tour.

Spotlight on Love is from Crown Media Productions, LLC. James Wilberger is executive producer and David Wulf is producer. Inspired by true events, Ron Oliver directed from a script by Willie Aames, Winnie Hung and Rich Tabach.

Ivonne Coll is represented by Brave Artists Management and Espada PR & Entertainment.
