‘Forever Christmas’: Meet Chelsea Hobbs, Christopher Russell and rest of the cast of feel-good Lifetime film

Christmas is one of the most anticipated festivals of the year. For some, the season represents miracles, happiness and gratification. The season has a healing effect and it ignites warm feelings. With all the uncertainties that we had to face in 2020, we are in the need of a huge amount of those heartwarming moments and feelings.

This year’s Christmas might be different with no parties and huge gatherings – and rightly so. But that shouldn’t dampen your holiday spirits. You still can make the most of by lazing on your couch with a cup of hot chocolate. Yes, there’s still two months left for the D-Day, but who can stop you from watching Christmas movies and just starting the celebrations a bit early. Also, movies do help you with the momentary escapism that is required to de-stress and relax. The list of films to watch during the festive season just keeps growing. While most of you might already have a list in place, there are a few other movies you might want to give a chance to. When you add romance to the mix in these holiday movies, it becomes even more exciting. ‘Forever Christmas’ is one such movie that might just make it to your Christmas movie list this year.

The official synopsis of the movie reads as, “When workaholic reality TV producer Sophie starts working on a holiday-season show about Will, a handsome guy who celebrates Christmas every day of the year, she finds herself falling for her mysterious, unlikely new star, renewing her long-lost faith in Christmas in the process.” While this gives us an idea about what the movie, it would be interesting to know why Sophie had lost her faith in Christmas and the reason behind our male protagonist celebrating the festival every day of the year. But before you watch the film, meet the dynamic cast of this film.
