“We’ve been in contact throughout the years after we completed the second film and we’ve been social media friends for quite some time. We hadn’t been in contact for a while, and I was hoping to have him part of my original comedy videos that I make to my YouTube channel.” Brown told Bustle in 2017 about developing a relationship with Kountz over the years after working with each other.
It was reported that the Guiding Light alum added: “I directed the short film that explored the possible places Kal could be today and Daniel was graciously appeared in it along alongside some of my other acquaintances of Second City where I’ve been studying improv for some time. The film was shot and stuff that I put on my YouTube channel, which kind of grew. It happened naturally and unexpectedly , grew out of the beginning.”
Brown stated that the response from Halloweentown supporters has been “amazing.”
“There’s a fine line with being in the public eye and the media and my personal life, but it’s been pretty funny to watch the fans’ responses,” she wrote at the time.

“People always love the … ‘If witches were all as pretty as you, they’d have a better reputation,'” Brown stated to The Los Angeles Times in October 2020. “And the other is the ‘Meeting the person I had hoped it was going to be’, and the like. … before I find out that he’s not good evidently.”
Kountz who shifted into real estate following his role on his role in the Halloweentown franchise, admitted that he’s still being recognized until today.
“A number of [fans] say, ‘I’m amazed that you’re actually together with Marnie right now. Did she not learn from her mistakes in the past?’ Funny stuff like that. They make me laugh,” Kountz added.
In the interview in 2020, Brown revealed one of the most significant lessons she learned from Reynolds who passed away in 2016 in the area of appreciation for their fans.
“That was something that was always very important to her,” Brown remembered. “She truly taught me how valuable it is to be in a position and be able create a positive impact on people’s lives. … This remains with me.”
The Rose Red star admitted that her friendship and that of her Golden Globe nominee greatly reflected their bond on screen.
“[I] tried to soak up as much time with her as I could because she became another grandmother to me,” Brown said to The L.A. Times. “So much of their relationship on screen mirrored what our relationship was in real life, so I’m grateful for that time I got with her.”
