Another fan posted that they hoped it was a “Crown for Christmas” sequel.

McKellar also shared on her Instagram story that day how she preps for scripts. She said her son, Draco, helps her run through lines. When she asked him about how she memorizes scripts on the video, he replied: “you do them with me, we record them together and you memorize them.”

When your mom and child visit you on set and bring HOMEMADE GUACAMOLE. I mean, does it get any better? I’m one lucky gal!! 🤗
Shout-out to my amazing mom @mahailamckellar … who is turning 75 next month and looks amazing, I mean, right?? 😍

Some People Are Theorizing This Might Be ‘I Spy Christmas’

On Twitter, @SleepyKittyPaw theorized the movie she’s working on might be “I Spy Christmas.”
