Cameron has always so many beautiful words for Liz! We love reading(or watching) people saying lovely things about her, we always feel like she leaving a trace of fairy dust everywhere she goes!
I believe from what I have been reading that you were really excited to get to work with Elizabeth Mitchell. You had not worked with her previously, right?
That’s right, I had not worked with her before. I had watched her on different projects through the years, and I was thrilled that I was going to be able to work with her. And once I got to meet her and see her on set, I was grateful. She’s incredibly open and fearless in her acting. She is willing to try very fun things and is very spontaneous. I was super lucky to be able to work with her.
Well, that probably answers my next question. I was going to say that you always have such incredible chemistry with all of your leading ladies. That is something I have noticed about you. So it sounds like the fact that she is the way you describe her probably made establishing that chemistry a much easier process.
Yeah, absolutely. You jump into these movies and oftentimes you don’t get a lot of time to know each other before you’re diving in and doing some romantic scene or something. And just her openness made the process of getting to know her so much easier. She is really comfortable with herself and has really intimate knowledge and acceptance of herself, and that really made it easy to get close to her and to believe what we need to believe…that our characters have fallen in love.
This is the part about the movie:
So what can you tell us about your character and how he fits into the overall story?
I’m glad you’ve heard so many good things about it. I loved making this movie. I thought it was such a sweet story. I know it’s such a buzzkill when what’s on the page is so lovely and we don’t do justice to that on the screen. So hopefully, that doesn’t happen. But from what I hear, we have done justice to the story and the script, and I really hope that the viewers agree.
I play a corporate advisor who doesn’t have the best memories of Christmas because of certain family issues from back in the day. My character, Edward, is single and in this town during Christmastime helping a client with some things. Through a series of seemingly random acts of kindness, little signs and indications, it brings myself and Elizabeth Mitchell’s character, Olivia, together a few times. We start to really pay attention to what’s going on and realize that maybe this is meant to be. We hang out, and we go through a few ups and downs together. But throughout the story, there’s this really sweet through-line of these random acts of kindness that keep on appearing and ultimately inspire others to do the same.
