Once enemies on television, former “Halloweentown” co-stars Kimberly J. Brown and Daniel Kountz are now tying the knot.
The couple, who starred in “Halloweentown II: Kalabar’s Revenge” in 2001, announced their engagement in Instagram posts on Thursday, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Brown, 37, shared a photograph on Instagram of herself with Kountz as she showed off her engagement ring, writing Daniel as she showed off her new diamond ring, writing: “Have I introduced you guys to my Fiancée? (sic) #isaidyes.”
Kountz, 43, also confirmed the news on his Instagram account, displaying a montage of their photos together throughout the years. He captioned his post, “She said yes‼️ Gunna love you forever @officialkjb.”
Brown, who starred in the series as Marnie Piper as a witch-in-training to Debbie Reynolds, first met Kountz on the set of “Halloweentown II: Kalabar’s Revenge,” the second installment of the beloved Disney Channel television movie franchise, Entertainment Weekly reported.
The actors began dating in 2016 and reconnected for a “Halloweentown”-themed project for Brown’s YouTube channel, the Times reported.
In the 2001 film, Daniel played Kal, an undercover warlock seeking revenge on Marnie and her family for the death of his father, according to IMDb.com. While Marnie originally had a crush on Kal, she soon discovers the truth about his identity and must defeat him before Halloweentown is destroyed.
Brown and Kountz spoke to E! News in October 2021 about a “Halloweentown” themed wedding while discussing their relationship.
“I’m sure the fans would love that,” Brown told the entertainment news outlet. “I mean, I don’t know, that idea has never come up in our discussions about life. But I’m sure that would be art imitating life or life imitating art? One of the two.”
The irony of the romance is not lost on either actor.
“A lot of (fans) say, ‘I can’t believe you’re with Marnie now. Didn’t she learn from her past mistakes?’ Funny things like that, which kind of crack me up,” Kountz previously told the Times.
