’Tis the season for heartwarming Christmas films that includes former stars of Full Home!
Jodie Sweetin does her half in Lifetime’s Merry Swissmas (Saturday, Nov. 5, at 8pm ET/PT), the place she performs Alex, a Chicago architect who travels to Switzerland to spend the vacations with household and associates at her mom’s new inn. Whereas there, Alex will get launched to Swiss Christmas customs, learns to let go of previous grudges and finds a good-looking single dad to kiss … finally.
“They’re very, very strict with what number of kisses are allowed,” Sweetin says of the Christmas rom-com style. “You’ve received to have the buildup moments of rigidity for the payoff moments on the finish.”
Sweetin made the buildup well worth the watch for this version of our “5 Questions.”
1. There’s no pretend snow in Merry Swissmas. Did you actually movie this in winter?
It was February, and we have been north of Montreal within the Laurentian Mountains. It was completely stunningly stunning there. All that snow was 100% actual. We received a ton of snow once we have been capturing, and there have been evening shoots on the market that have been chilly. This California lady was not ready for it, however the Christmas vibe that comes off of it with the actual snow is simply magical.
2. Did you get to go down the hill within the sledding scenes?
I received to do the sledding hill! It was actually enjoyable. It was actually quick, and we despatched some crew members down earlier than and we had our stunt guys and all the things. Everybody was type of a giant child for the day once we have been doing the sledding scene.
3. The place do you stand as regards to ugly Christmas sweaters?
I like nothing greater than ridiculous Christmas sweater. After I embellish my home for Christmas, I’ve two Christmas timber, and I’m barely obnoxious in regards to the adorning. So go for it! Put on the ugly sweater! Rock it!
4. What’s the best Christmas present you’ve ever acquired?
In my 20s, we have been joking about Christmas presents, and I mentioned how I at all times wished that Barbie motor residence, however Santa might by no means fairly get his palms on it. In order that 12 months, as a joke, my mother purchased me the Barbie motor residence! After all, as a result of she works at a college, we circled and donated it.
5. Do you may have any fond reminiscences of the Full Home Christmas specials?
I bear in mind the one we did when the household will get caught within the Reno airport, I feel perhaps the primary season. We get caught on the airport and Santa comes. I feel Uncle Jesse falls asleep on the conveyor belt and winds up outdoors. It was one thing ridiculous. There have been loads of ugly Christmas sweaters to go round, that’s for certain.
