How JUST IN TIME Star Laura Osnes Overcame Her Fear of TV Film

By Movieguide® Contributor

Great American Family star Laura Osnes revealed that she was once “afraid” of TV film.

“I wanted to be on Broadway 100%. I was singing and dancing and acting out musicals in my living room. I always loved the stage. In fact, I was afraid of TV film for a while,” Osnes revealed on Annie F. Downs’ “That Sound Fun” podcast. “In New York, I would audition for TV film stuff, and it would just never happen. So, I think I came to think I was bad at it, or it just wasn’t my path.”

“And then I booked my first Hallmark movie in like 2018 and had to play the lead,” she continued. “I was like, ‘I have no idea what I’m doing.’ I just entered it very humbly. I befriended the director, and I was just like, ‘Just hold my hand and help me fly. Teach me.’ And I didn’t sleep for three days. I called my parents and said, ‘Please pray for me. I’m so nervous.’ Honestly, after the first day on set, I was like, ‘Okay.'”

“It’s just the fear of something new,” Osnes explained. “Fear of the unknown. I felt like an old dog learning a new trick, and I still feel like that, but I’m becoming more comfortable being in that place.”

Now Osnes has starred in five different Hallmark films and two Great American Family films with plans to star in more.

Most recently, she appeared in GAF’s new movie JUST IN TIME, which premiered on Great American Pure Flix on April 12.

JUST IN TIME follows husband and wife Hannah (Osnes) and Rowan (Holt). The two “have focused all their time, energy, and attention into trying to have a baby. The pressure to complete their family starts weighing heavily on their relationship. The couple is left questioning if having a child is the right thing to do and if they are still right for one another. When Hannah receives a call from a stranger, named Franklin (Bryant), who claims to have discovered an antique on the beach bearing an inscription unique to Hannah and Rowan, she reluctantly agrees to meet him to look. Franklin is certain the watch is a long-lost heirloom from Hannah’s family. In the end, Franklin’s patient approach helps Hannah see that the answers to all she seeks will be revealed in God’s time.”

Movieguide® recently reported on Osnes gratitude for JUST IN TIME:

The Great American Family recently released a new Easter movie called JUST IN TIME, and star Laura Osnes is opening up about the project.

“What I love about this story and what makes it so compelling, especially at Easter time, is that it’s a true redemption story. I think it’s all about how even in the most hopeless situations God can show up and turn it into something beautiful,” Osnes shared.

…Osnes is grateful for the opportunity to share this story with viewers.

“God jump-started 2024 with an opportunity to film a beautiful new movie on Vancouver Island. Tho we battled snow and some frigid temps on set, I pinched myself every day, so grateful to help bring the meaningful story & message of #JustInTime to life for all of you this Easter season,” she wrote on Instagram.

“Everything happens so fast on these projects, and developing camaraderie & trust with new people in sometimes just a day or two is never guaranteed. But thanks to the multi-marvelousness of this leading cast, chemistry was instant and effortless,” she added.
