When Lila is hired by the Royal Family of Ancadia to restore their carousel as a surprise present for the prince’s niece, she works with him side-by-side to complete it by Christmas. Along the way, they learn they’re more similar than they would have thought and also help each other realize the path in life their hearts want them to follow.

A Christmas Carousel…is a very sweet old fashioned fairy tale where a girl named Lila meets a boy named Prince Whitaker, and Lila restores carousels with her father. She is hired by the royal family of Ancadia… to restore the royal carousel which her grandfather had built. She is sort of looking for a bit of inspiration in her life, and I provide a necessary spark.”

“My real preparation was a lotof fun actually because I was playing a British prince, and I spent a lot of weeks working with an accent coach…It was from that place of language that I really started to develop a lot of the character. You know the first thing that jumped out at me when I read the script is it felt like a Hugh Grant character.”

“…We had to quarantine together for 14 days, and that allowed us to really rehearsed and get to know each other in this professional way…we’d spend about five hours a day on the phone going over the script.”
