Candace Cameron Bure Back on Set
The Christian actress is shooting her next Christmas movie for the Hallmark Channel.
Candace Cameron Bure likes to call herself the "Queen of Christmas," which makes sense since she is one of the stars most consistently featured in the annual parade of Yuletide movies on the Hallmark family of channels. And this year - despite the coronavirus discombobulations in TV and movie production - is no exception.
Cameron Bure is in Canada right now shooting what is her ninth Hallmark Christmas movie and, yes, as you can see in the photo above, they are taking precautions to thwart possible coronavirus infection (she also had a two-week quarantine upon arrival in the Great White North). It's called If I Only Had Christmas and she tells The Christian Post that the picture is "a little homage to The Wizard of Oz, which is my all-time favorite movie."
As we reported earlier, Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries will air 40 new Christmas flicks this year, and they'll include other Christian actors in addition to Bure, like Lacey Chabert and Tamera Mowry-Housley. The Christmas movie marathon kicks off on October 23rd in a nonstop stream of those new ones interspersed between reruns of the old ones.
Of course, regardless of the prominent roles played by Christian cast members, these are all secular productions. Our coming Christmas movie Miracle on Christmas, on the other hand, is a different story. While it has the look of the Hallmark movies - brightly-lit, lots of bold colors, ornaments and Christmas music - it is very much a faith-based picture and tells a tale of overcoming fears and doubts by relying on the steadfast love of God and doing so with the support of family.
The movie is releasing this Christmas season and we will keep you updated here at Christmas Film Blog and via the Miracle on Christmas Instagram page. You can find out more about the movie right now in this article we wrote earlier this year.
