HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Daily Star) 2017/4/9 – “Hailey, of course, is solving a mystery,” says Hailey Dean Mystery: Deadly Estate star Kellie Martin during a Home & Family interview. “One of her best friends has disappeared. Nobody seems very concerned about it. But, Hailey thinks there’s something wrong with that.”
“Another thing that happens in this episode is we get into Hailey’s past more,” says Martin. “She’s having nightmares. Her fiancee, he was killed in front of her many years ago. She’s starting to have nightmares again about that incident. She ends up learning more about that. There’s a big revelation about her past in this episode. It’s great for an actress to play that. I’m a really good crier. So many of these mysteries you are just in there solving the crime, and then you get the bad guy. This one we get to see her vulnerability and go a little bit deeper.”
