  • Lacey Chabert said she's "proud" of her work with Hallmark on its holiday movies and other films.

  • While promoting her Kelley Blue Book and Autotrader partnership, she noted the network's "deeper" stories.

  • Chabert said Hallmark "has done a wonderful job of telling stories that everyone can relate to."

Lacey Chabert is one of Hallmark Channel's most recognizable faces, having appeared in 10 holiday movies and many other TV films and shows for the network.

Hallmark's original movies are a staple in many households over the holidays but have faced criticism in recent years for a lack of Black leads, exclusion of the queer community, and a lack of religious diversity.

While promoting her partnership with Kelley Blue Book and Autotrader for the holidays, Chabert said she's glad Hallmark has been focusing on more inclusion in its stories since 2020.

"I think that Hallmark has done a wonderful job of telling stories that everyone can relate to," Chabert said. "And I think they continue to try harder and strive to do that even more."

Chabert also added that she enjoys working with Hallmark because their stories are "always centered around love and heart."

"I always try to bring stories to life that have characters that people can see themselves in and all the different challenges of life," Chabert continued, noting that she believes Hallmark is "expanding on that and telling stories that are deeper."

She added: "I'm really proud of all of the work I've gotten to do with them."

Chabert said she thinks Hallmark Christmas movies have become a tradition in people's homes for the holidays because they feel "uplifted" watching them.

"To be a part of something that adds a little light in the world is something I really consider an honor," she told Insider.

Chabert's own holiday traditions often include a Christmas Eve mini "road trip" of sorts. That made her excited to partner with Kelley Blue Book and Autotrader, which have winter car care tips and even playlist suggestions. "We all pile into the car, grab our hot cocoa, and we go look at Christmas lights," she said of her family's tradition, adding that she's excited she now gets to continue it with her 5-year-old daughter, Julia.

Chabert will next appear in a trio of Hallmark movies alongside Alison Sweeney and Autumn Reeser in 2022 known as "The Wedding Veil" trilogy. Three friends buy a wedding veil together, counting on the legend that whoever is in possession of the accessory will fall in love.
