'Christmas Waltz': Meet Lacey Chabert and Will Kemp, the cast of Hallmark's festive flick
The romance drama focuses on Avery and Roman, who develop a special bond while dancing together
Re-watching classics during the holiday season might be exciting, but there are a few new movies that you can check out this year. Hallmark Channel is known for presenting happy and heartwarming holiday films. This year is no different. Get ready for some original and exciting new Christmas movies to be aired on the channel. So, get ready to settle down on your couch with a bowl of popcorn. As part of the network’s ‘Countdown to Christmas’ programming event, Hallmark will air ‘Christmas Waltz’.
The official synopsis reads: “After Avery’s storybook Christmas wedding is canceled unexpectedly, handsome and irreverent dance instructor Roman persuades her to continue with the 10 dance lessons she’d booked – the first sale of the studio’s resident whiz kid, Nicky. As Avery takes lessons with Roman, and sometimes Nicky, she begins to open up and soon the pair seems to move together flawlessly – both on the dance floor and off. Roman helps Avery to take a holiday from perfection and to live in the moment, and in return, she helps guide him on a special business venture. Soon, however, the past threatens to trip up the pair, unless they can remember that the most important lesson in dance and in love is trusting your partner.” But before you watch it, here are the details of the talented cast.
