“Magic in Mistletoe” was filmed in Vancouver, Canada, Commercial Appeal reported. Skyy Blair, the screenwriter, told Commercial Appeal that writing a Hallmark movie was always one of her goals, even after writing four successful novels.

Blair shared on Instagram that she’s super excited about the movie. She told Commercial Appeal that the movie is, in part, a tribute to her aunt who loves Hallmark films.

Director Paula Elle shared selfies with many of her co-workers while on set.

Campbell made fun of his character’s “grinch” behavior in the movie in this Instagram post, writing: “Hands down the LEAST likeable I’ve ever been off the top of a Hallmark movie (it came with surprising ease…).”

In an interview with TV Fanatic, Campbell shared about his character: “There’s a little danger in playing somebody [like him]. When you start with somebody that unlikable, really the challenge is, can you bring them full circle? Can you win the audience back?The line you have to walk is how salty can you be? How far can you push this without losing people completely in the first ten minutes?”

Actress Mila Jones posted a highlight on her Instagram account, saying that her co-star was hilarious!

Dawn Chubai, who plays a news reporter, shared what it looked like inside the actors’ dressing rooms.

Hallmark’s synopsis reads:

Harrington is the author of a popular book series, but commercial success has left him a bitter recluse. As he returns to his hometown for an annual Christmas festival celebrating his books, he’s joined by April, a publicist for the major publishing house he works with. April is there for damage control after Harrington’s recent comments on social media have ruffled some feathers. But as she gets to know him better, hope springs that April can unlock Harrington’s guarded heart and help him rediscover the spirit of the holiday.

Lyndie Greenwood plays April. According to her bio, she was born in Canada and is currently featured in the lead role of the CTV comedy series “Shelved.” She also starred in “Holiday Heritage” alongside Holly Robinson-Peete and “Girlfriendship” with Tamera Mowry-Housley. She was a co-star in the Emmy-nominated Lifetime movie “Flint,” where she shared the screen with Queen Latifah. Additionally, she had starring roles in the Fox TV series “Sleepy Hollow” and The CW’s “Nikita.”
