Nicky Whelan as Kat
Whelan, who is known for her works in 'House of Lies', 'Entourage', 'Workaholics', 'Franklin & Bas' and, of course, her roles as Pepper Steiger in 'Neighbours', has more than an acting talent up her sleeve. According to a Hallmark press release, the actress, a Victoria, Australia, native has also trained in classical and jazz dance at the Dance Factory before she began acting. The network revealed that Whelan was the "face of racing" on live Australian television for eight years, and was voted sports model of the year for three years running along with hosting programs for women’s health and for adventure sports. She is also a fan of MMS and pro boxing and was a former cheerleader and commentator for K-1 kickboxing.
Many may remember her from her other works such as 'From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series', 'Matador', Hallmarks' 'Romance at Reindeer Lodge', 'Inconceivable' alongside Nicholas Cage and Faye Dunaway, 'Tragedy Girls' alongside Josh Hutcherson and Craig Robinson, 'The Binge' alongside Vince Vaughn, 'Trauma Center' with Bruce Willis and more.
Greg Vaughan as Danny
Vaughan, who was born in Dallas, Texas, made his debut with the series 'Malibu Shores' and went on to play Cliff Yeager in 'Beverly Hills 90210' and Dan Gordon in 'Charmed'. He became a series regular in 'Charmed'. He is also known for his other works such as 'The Young and the Restless' for which he was nominated for a Soap Opera Digest Award in 2003. He also won a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for 'Days of Our Lives' where he played the role of Eric Brady.
His other works, both guest roles and otherwise include 'Will & Grace', 'Lucifer', 'The Closer', 'Still Standing', and 'General Hospital'. 'Valentine's Again' is not the first time Vaughan has been part of a Hallmark production; he also played roles in 'Love's Christmas Journey', 'Second Chances', 'The Christmas Note' and 'A Very County Christmas'.
Marian Sirtis as Marta
Sirtis is most popularly known for her role as Deanna Troi for seven seasons of 'Star Trek: The Next Generation'.

Her other works — guest roles and otherwise — include 'Titans', 'The Orville', 'Scandal', 'Without a Trace', 'Grey's Anatomy' and of course the feature film 'Crash'. According to a press release by Hallmark, the actress was born in London to Greek parents who didn't want her to act. But after Sirtis had completed high school, she applied to the Guild Hall School of Music and Drama in secret.
She ended up graduating and working in British TV before moving to LA to work in the American industry. Interestingly, after six months, the actress was ready to go back home but ended up getting the part that would catapult her career — 'Star Trek' creator Gene Roddenberry ended up changing her mind, and we all had the purity to meet Deanna Troi.

The official synopsis reads: "As Kat (Nicky Whelan) dejectedly walks home from a failed Valentine’s Day date with an online match she was certain was perfect for her, she bumps into a mysterious stranger (Marian Sirtis) who reveals that Kat spoke to the love of her life earlier that day. The next morning, Kat has a serious case of déjà vu and, after running into Marta once more, learns that she’ll continue to relive the same Valentine’s Day, over and over, until she connects with her soul mate. Kat is skeptical at first but follows Marta’s advice and goes out with each man she encountered. But when Kat finally goes on a date with Danny (Greg Vaughan), the man meant for her, Cupid’s arrow misses the mark. Before Valentine’s Day will stop repeating itself, Kat must learn more about who she really is and what she wants from life in order to enjoy her happily ever after."
