About The Movie:
Those years of law school pay off for Emma but not in ways one would expect. When she finds out that her beloved ice-sculpting contest, part of her hometown’s Christmas festival, has been canceled, she springs into action. Determined to keep it going, she enlists sponsors and artists. Nick, the town’s ace artisan, isn’t interested in competing this year, but Emma wants him as her teammate. Considering what she’s managed to accomplish, Nick is impressed and signs on. They just might have a shot at winning this very special Christmas contest — and a lot more.
We had the chance to catch up with star Taylor Cole about her role, her favorite holiday movie, and her Christmas traditions.
Kat: Was there anything about your role that was particularly challenging?
TC: Luckily I immediately bonded with the character because of her connection with her father and the activities they bonded over.
Kat: What was your favorite scene to shoot and why? (without giving away spoilers)
TC: The last scene with my father was hands-down my favorite scene. I’m a daddy’s girl and that bond is beautiful and unbreakable.
Kat: Do you have any hidden talents? (like ice sculpting)
TC: I actually have a great hand eye coordination. So watch out because I’ll hustle you in all bar sports like pool, darts and ping-pong.
Kat: What’s your favorite Christmas movie?
TC: Home Alone hands-down.
Kat: Do you or your family have any special holiday traditions?
TC: My dad would always make goofy Christmas cards. One year I sent him a picture from set where my character was beat up on CSI. Next thing I know he sent it out as a Christmas card with the caption “Hollywood is Rough.”
