After an exhaustive search spanning all across Canada, the hunt for finding someone to play Anne Shirley in the new movie "Anne of Green Gables – A New Beginning" (2008), finally came to an end when 12 year-old, Hannah Endicott-Douglas, was selected to reprise the role made famous by Megan Follows.
A Toronto native, Endicott-Douglas landed her first role at the age of nine in "Samantha – An American Girl Holiday," (2004) for Warner Bros. She then went on to star in a series of movies for Hallmark Channel "The Good Witch," The Good Witch's Garden" and "The Good Witch's Gift." In addition, Endicott-Douglas has lent her voice for many characters in popular animated shows including "Miss BG," "Will and Dewitt" and "My Friend Rabbit." More recently, she can be seen guest starring in various television series such as "Flashpoint" and "Murdoch Mysteries" as well, alongside Kevin Spacey in "Casino Jack." Most important to Endicott-Douglas is that she is an Elementary School Ambassador for the non-profit organization Free The Children.
Life is going well for Cassandra "Cassie" Nightingale (Catherine Bell) as she settles into marriage with Middleton Police Chief Jake Russell (Chris Potter) and as stepmom to Brandon (Matthew Knight) and Lori (Hannah Endicott-Douglas). But evil soon blows into town in the form of Cassie's long-lost cousin Abigail, who whips up wickedness like a tornado. The once peaceful Russell family bickers night and day; Jake is fired after an argument with the Mayor over a bridge expansion; and Martha (Catherine Disher), the Mayor's wife and town busy body, walks out on her long marriage. As the town divides further over neighborhood expansion, Cassie is drafted to run for Mayor. With in her once-happy marriage, her family is unraveling, and Abigail's diabolical "double, double, toil and trouble" is the apex of Cassie's misery. What's a good witch to do?
