It’s been six months since schoolteacher Elizabeth Scott (Cindy Busby) and businessman Donovan Darcy (Ryan Paevey) meet at a dog show in the Hallmark movie Unleashing Mr. Darcy. Now they’re engaged. In the sequel Marrying Mr. Darcy, Donovan gets on one knee and proposes. “You make everything come alive” and “I want to share my life with you,” he tells Elizabeth, who says yes – several times. Hallmark fans will remember Donovan’s scornful Aunt Violet – and she’s back but this time with an apology to Elizabeth for her past behavior.
Violet Darcy is portrayed by Frances Fisher. She’s known for her roles in two Clint Eastwood films Unforgiven (Strawberry Alice), True Crime (D.A. Cecilia Nussbaum), and in Titanic (Ruth Dewitt Bukater, Kate Winslet’s mother), and House of Sand and Fog, among others. She recently appeared on Masters of Sex as Virginia Johnson’s mother. Fisher is the mother of actress Francesca Eastwood, daughter of Clint Eastwood (see cute photo below). Marrying Mr. Darcy premieres on Hallmark on Saturday, June 2 at 9pm.
#NWHM #Woman Celebrating #MothersDay with my greatest accomplishment @francescaeastwood -birthing & raising this beauty to be a caring, kind, funny & smart #ForceOfNature! We wear these T-shirt’s in honor of the women on whose shoulders we stand. Particularly today we honor #JuliaWardHowe who in 1870 wrote the #MothersDayProclamation calling for ending wars & a #MothersDayOfPeace. @womenshistory #WomensHistory #HistoryMaker #ForwardMarch MOTHERS DAY PROCLAMATION Arise then, #women of this day! Arise, all women who have hearts, Whether our baptism be that of water or of tears! Say firmly: We will not have great questions decided by irrelevant agencies. Our husbands shall not come to us, reeking of carnage, for caresses and applause. Our sons shall not be taken from us to unlearn all that we have been able to teach them of charity, mercy and patience. We, women of one country, will be too tender of those of another country to allow our sons to be trained to injure theirs. From the bosom of the devastated earth a voice goes up with our own. It says: Disarm! Disarm! The sword of murder is not the balance of justice. Blood does not wipe out dishonor, nor violence vindicate possession. As men have often forsaken the plough & the anvil at the summons of war, let women now leave all that may be left of home for a great and earnest day of council. Let them meet first, as women, to bewail and commemorate the dead. Let them then solemnly take council with each other as to the means whereby the great human family can live in peace, each bearing after its own kind the sacred impress, not of Caesar, but of God. In the name of womanhood and of humanity, I earnestly ask that a general congress of women, without limit of nationality, may be appointed and held at some place deemed most convenient, and at the earliest period consistent with its objects, to promote the alliance of the different nationalities, the amicable settlement of international questions, the great and general interests of peace. – Julia Ward Howe And what did the patriarchy do? They commercialized MothersDay to sell flowers! #War is a cowards way. #Peace is #Heroism ?
