"I played Tom Arnold's daughter in that. I really enjoyed working with him, but that was my first movie back in from acting in like 10 years because I took a break to raise my kids. I was pretty nervous working on that film. There was the kiss at the end, which is, you know, a super simple Hallmark kiss, but I was so nervous. And I told the actor, 'I have not kissed another man since my wedding day.' And he's like, 'Yeah, but it's fine. It's Hallmark.' But I was quite nervous over the whole thing."
"Oh, I just I loved this movie. That was with Alan Thicke. Alan was so wonderful. I loved that movie because he played my dad and obviously played my brother's dad on Growing Pains for so many years. Alan was so beloved. My biggest takeaway from Let It Snow was being with Alan."
"That movie is still the highest-rated Hallmark movie in the history of the channel since it aired. I'm still trying to break that record. Nobody's broken it and I can't even break it. I know how loved that movie was and we filmed that one in Utah. It was great fun."
"This one was with Paul Greene and then our director was Ron Oliver, whom I loved as well. He's great, fun and directed so many different Hallmark movies. I remember we were really hot. It was in the middle of summer. I try not to shoot my Christmas movies in the middle of summer because you don't want to be all wrapped up in coats and sweaters and it's 90 degrees out. But I just remember the snow blowing and bubbles and the potato stuff that they used for snow like all in my face. Being in that scarf and jacket and coat, and then it was like I had cut off denim shorts on underneath because it was about 90 degrees!"
"I loved this movie. Working with Oliver Hudson was great. He's still one of my favorite people and co-stars because he's crazy in the best of ways. I love him. And I love it. I got to do a period piece and part of that was in the 1940s and to have those costumes and hair. It was definitely a departure for me. And not a traditional character that I played. I borrowed some of my grandma Jean's jewelry that my poppa had given her and I wore it all through the movie. There was a special brooch that I wore and some earrings and a bracelet, and those were my grandmother's. Those were given to her in the '40s from my grandfather. That movie was really special. Probably my grandma's favorite movie of mine."
"So I loved being able to play twins. That was super fun to do. It was so technical. It was definitely a challenge to be playing two different characters, to run a dialogue with myself and against myself. I love that [daughter] Natasha [Bure] was in this movie. That was a special treat for me as a mom."
"This one aside from the movies that haven't aired yet is my favorite of mine because Jean Smart is just brilliant. She was incredible. And I'm a shoe addict, which is what attracted me to this story. It was based on a book. But working with Jean smart was the highlight. There's a little bit of time travel in the sense of she goes a little Christmas past a little Christmas future. I loved everything about this movie."
"This one was a really, heartfelt movie. It had that tone through it through and through. And it was about fostering and adoption. And I love the sweet tone of this whole movie. This one was kind of a last minute one for me that we were trying to find and put together a script for. I was so pleased with it and just thought it was so sweet. It also included some of the work that I do with Salvation Army, which just on a personal level for charity, was also powerful."
"Oh, I just adore this one. This is one my producing partner Jim Head created for me. We came up with this idea because The Wizard of Oz is my all-time favorite movie. And we thought how can we take some of the elements of The Wizard of Oz and put it into a Christmas movie? If you are a fan of that movie, there's a lot of little places where you'll hear some dialogue from The Wizard of Oz. And even all the character names are just a letter or two off or have similar consonants in the names. The characters are similar as far as like the Tin Man, the Scarecrow, the Lion, and then the Wizard and the Witch as well. You have to look for it, it's not in your face, but if you do know that movie, you'll see it all in there. I adored working with Warren Christie, he was fabulous. Also, it just made me giddy to think that I was kind of like Dorothy."
"The highlight for sure is working with John Brotherton. We play these exes that are competing in the same Christmas contest. So there's lots of fun character moments in there and we got to do a little more comedy in this movie than we traditionally would in a Hallmark movie. Doing that with John was a highlight just because of our sitcom route. We balanced the comedy out at the end because there's a lot of heartfelt moments in this one as well. So again, I adored this movie. For me, it's the one that I would actually want to do a sequel to.While we were developing this script, I knew the entire time as we were fleshing out the characters that John needed to be my co-star. And John is not Canadian, so that actually posed some issues but we worked it out. But I just knew how much fun it would be for Fuller House fans to have Matt and DJ be reunited. But I also knew that because we have so much TV history over working together for the past five seasons and what our characters went through on Fuller House that it was the perfect subtext for these characters on The Christmas Contest. And I thought, 'Oh, this is perfect.'"
