Johannah Newmarch is playing the wicked stepmom in "A Cinderella Story: Christmas Wish"

Johannah has said in an interview that she was a passionate dancer from a young age. She trained in classical ballet for about 8 years at Royal Winnipeg Ballet School. She was inspired to pursue ballet after watching a movie called The Turning Point. The movie made a real impression on her and she told her mother that she wanted to take dance lessons. 

She was serious about dancing for several years but eventually, she realized that she wasn’t enough passionate about it. She knew that she still loved performing but not as a dancer anymore.

That’s when she began taking acting classes at about 15. She did quite well through her late teens and early twenties but she got a bit disillusioned once again and left acting too. But unlike in the past, she made a comeback in the acting world after an entire decade.

Best known for appearing as Molly Sullivan on When Calls the Heart, Newmarch has worked on various other Hallmark movies like Mrs. Miracle and It’s Christmas, Carol.
