This is for everyone because Christmas is for everyone. The Hallmark channel is for everyone. Holiday caretaker for everyone, and I know a lot of people will see this movie and feel cared for and feel like they have a seat at the Hallmark table.”

The actor “absolutely” likes to “continue the story of Sam and Jason [played by George Krissa] because fans will love it. I think since this is the first time we’ve seen a cute weird encounter online, it’s important to follow the story and continue the story so you can see the relationship progress.”
