UPtv recently released their list of new movies for the 2017 holiday season as part of their “We Get Christmas” campaign.
Premiering on Sunday December 3rd at 7PM ET is “12 Days Of Giving” Starring Ashley Jones and David Blue.
About The Movie:
A man who wins a small fortune decides to share his winnings by acting as a Secret Santa to people in a small town.
We had the chance to catch up with star Ashley Jones about her role, her favorite holiday movie and family traditions.
Kat: Was there anything about your role that was particularly challenging?
Ashley: This was the first time I was on location with my baby. My mom and sister came to Nebraska to take care of him, but it was still an adjustment traveling with a baby!
Kat: What was your favorite scene to shoot and why? (without giving away spoilers)
Ashley: I like the dramatic scenes where I confront Baxter… also the scenes where we bonded after decorating the tree were special.
Kat: Do you have a favorite Christmas movie?
Ashley: Oh so many! Right now, this one! Ha. But, the Chevy Chase Christmas Vacation ones are always fun to watch.
Kat: Do you or your family have any special holiday traditions?
Ashley: I did growing up, but now that I have my own family, we’re creating new traditions. Tonight, we’re decorating the tree and setting up the train that goes around it. The boys love this train! My stepson got it from his grandmother the year he was born, so she started the train tradition!
Kat: What’s the best Christmas present you’ve ever received?
Ashley: Good question! I’d have to think about it…. maybe the best gift is yet to come! But, last year, holding my son on his first Christmas was the best gift I could ever ask for!
