Lea Micheleis getting into the Christmasspirit…
The 32-year-old part-Spanish actress is set to star in ABC’s special holiday movie Same Time, Next Christmas, from Freeform Studios, which is slated to air in December 2019.
In the movie, the Glee alum will play the lead role of Olivia Henderson, a young woman who met her childhood sweetheart during her family’s annual Christmas visit to Hawaii. After being separated by distance and years, the two reunite at the same Hawaii resort years later and the old chemistry between them flares up anew – but circumstances conspire to keep them apart.
“This holiday season holds special importance to me as I get to celebrate both my role in this film and my first-ever holiday album,” said Michele. “I’m honored to return to ABC with this movie event, and I am excited to share the holidays with everyone.”
Same Time, Next Christmas adds to Michele’s Yuletide repertoire as she’ll be releasing her first Christmas album this coming holiday.
Stephen Herekis set to direct and Karen Bloch Morseis writing.
