Are you ready for romance? THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ Eyal Podell (ex-Adrian) is poised to deliver in the Hallmark Movie Channel Original, Lake Effects, airing this Sunday! “It’s a nice little touching story about this family that loses their father and about returning home for the right reasons,” he explains.
The film stars Scottie Thompson as Sara who returns to the small community of Smith Mountain Lake following the death of her father and must reconcile with the family — including her mother, played by Jane Seymour, and high school boyfriend, Podell’s Tyler — that she’d left behind. “Scottie was great. We had a fantastic time,” he shares. “She is really smart and so easy to look at. She is just a really cool girl.”
Viewers can expect to experience tears, laughter, love, and even a mysterious lake monster in this film that the real-life mountain’s locals contributed to. “There were lot of really cool, grassroots efforts made, and it was a movie unlike any other I’ve ever done,” Podell says. The film also features Y&R’s Sean Patrick Flannery (ex-Sam). Tune in to the Hallmark Movie Channel on Sunday, May 6, at 8 p.m. ET for the debut of Lake Effects.
But the Hallmark movie isn’t your only chance to catch Podell on your television this month. He’ll also appear as The Passenger on the two-hour season finale of NCIS: LOS ANGELES, airing Tuesday, May 15, on CBS!
