Sweeney also revealed that despite being in Vancouver filming different movies, she was able to celebrate her birthday with Barbara Niven and Cameron Mathison.
On Twitter in August, Elliott revealed that he would be starring in a Christmas movie this year with a “special lady who I’ve never worked with before.” Fans later learned that he was talking about Sweeney.
