  1. Can't believe Hallmark didn't snatch this one up, or Lifetime for that matter. Looks really good, Net! Both the leads are so gorgeous!

    3. Oh my goodness!!! Thank you for pointing out that both of their names - Niall Matter and Lisa Whelchel - were missing from the official cast list, Cathy. That was from the release from imdb.

      I apologize... I didn't realize they were both missing when I added the listing above. Anyway, I knew both actors were in the film - since I added them on my "Beyond Page" weeks ago. Myself and many Movie Sleuths here at It's a Wonderful Movie had been trying to figure out what Christmas movie Lisa was in for months!!!

      Originally "Falling For Christmas" was called "A Snow Capped Christmas". I found the movie via social media and shared some behind-the-scenes pictures "here". Then our movie sleuthing friend Sherry in California discovered Lisa Whelchel had made a Christmas Movie and then, Shirley S. discovered it was this same movie!

      So..... Thank you, again! I have added their names to the cast above. I appreciate you taking the time to comment, Cathy, and let me know!!!

      Merry Christmas to You!!!
      Blessings!!! Net :)

  2. So happy now! Niall Matter is a new favorite of mine since Stop the Wedding and I loved him with Erin Krakow in her new HMM Christmas movie last night! He's a keeper, Hallmark! Don't lose him to UP! I'm also surprised we haven't seen Leah on Hallmark since Love by the Book. But, I'm hoping now we will see more of these two refreshing faces!

    Love & LOL Laughter!!! Lauren ⛄⛄⛄

    1. I thought I knew him from somewhere. Too funny that he's in TWO Christmas movies!

    2. I'm so glad you knew his name! I could not remember what I knew him from. When I saw your review, I was finally able to look him up. I loved him in the tv show Eureka. I wonder why he is not listed in the cast info above?

    3. Thank you, Erica! As I shared with Cathy above, I simply didn't realize Niall Matter's name was missing from the official cast list. I have now added his name, and others above! I appreciate you e-mailing to let me know! Hope you enjoyed the movie!

      Merry Christmas to You!!!
      Blessings!!! Net :)

    1. From what I gather, it was filmed in Okanagan, Canada. However, there may have been several various locations for different scenes... ice rink, lodge, outdoor ice pond, etc...

      Thank you for commenting!!!
      Merry Christmas to You!!!

    1. When I saw him, I thought right away that it was Hall-of-famer Bobby Orr. I wish I knew for sure, but I'd be willing to bet money on it.

  5. This one was pretty cute and entertaining. Jullian's character certainly brought the humor aspect. Overall it was a nice, easy watch. Not the type that I would watch over and over, but it was pretty sweet, especially coming from Up.
