'A Christmas Carousel': Meet Rachel Boston, Neal Bledsoe and rest of the cast of Hallmark's holiday film
The festive season isn’t just an excuse to ditch the diet plan and forget work stress, it is also about being happy and spreading joy. This hasn’t been that great a year, but that shouldn’t dampen your Christmas spirit. And we have plenty of reasons to tell you why you should be excited. For starters, Hallmark, known for its heartwarming and joyful Christmas films, is set to air some exciting movies again this year and one of those delightful movies is ‘A Christmas Carousel’.
The official synopsis reads: “Known for their skill at restoring carousels, Lila and her father Roy are hired by the royal family of Ancadia to return their Carousel to its original luster as a Christmas present for Prince Whitaker’s niece. Although Lila’s first impression of the Prince – or Whit, as he prefers to be called – isn’t the best, she soon sees a different side to him. Whit is overseeing the restoration project and as he and Lila work together they connect over his affinity for the arts. The more time they spend with each other the closer they become and feelings begin to develop. Lila and Whit also help each other realize what path in life their hearts want them to take. When Lila believes Whit’s royal duty is leading him to announce his engagement to someone from nobility at the Christmas Gala, she suddenly decides to return home. But a wish made on the carousel’s wishing horse may prove to be the Christmas magic needed to bring two hearts together.” Before you get ready to watch the movie, here’s all you need to know about the talented cast.
