Today's Blind Items- Kindness

This actress is probably unknown to lots of you. She was in a big franchise, but not the franchises one typically thinks of. Book based though. She is on a long running almost network show. I wouldn't call it a hit, but on that network, you don't really need to have huge numbers. She is foreign born. One of the leads on her show. It films outside the US and when she got to that city she found a school that was looking for volunteers. She takes part in an after school program there several times each week. Reads to the kids, helps them with their homework. Leads art and craft projects. A couple of the teachers knew she was an actress but not what she was in. One day they had a movie day though and the movie that was picked was the first in that franchise of hers. Apparently it was quite the scene when all the kids pointed to the screen and then back to the actress. She has been volunteering at this school for years now.

If it's her then this is a repeat BI, because she was the answer to something similar a few weeks ago.

I'm not sure if it qualifies as long running, but this sounds a lot like Anna Popplewell. She was in the Chronicles of Narnia, which is a child-friendly franchise (and the blind made it sound like she is volunteering with elementary aged children, so they would be the target audience for the film).

She's a lead in Reign (has appeared in 50 of the 53 episodes as well) and it is filmed in Toronto and has been on the air for about 3 years now- and on a network that doesn't require huge ratings to survive.

:| This hadn't shown up before I answered. This delayed response visibility thing really takes the fun out of guessing lol.

Good job, though, I'm convinced this is it.
