Candace Cameron Bure
Before she moved to Great American Family (GAC), Candace Cameron Bure had a public feud with JoJo Siwa. Although she apologized, Bure soon reignited the fire.
When asked if same-sex couples will be portrayed in GAC holiday films, Bure told the publication, "I think that Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at the core."
Citing it was offensive that Bure would create a movie to exclude LGBTQIA+, Siwa said on Instagram, "This is rude and hurtful to a whole community of people."
Luke Macfarlane
A graduate of the Lester B. Pearson School for the Arts and Julliard, Luke Macfarlane is a classically trained cellist and trumpet player who has fronted a band.
In the Hallmark movie "Chateau Christmas," his character was meant to play the violin, but the production team changed it to take advantage of Macfarlane's cello-playing talent.
Niall Matter
Niall Matter developed a passion for acting as a teenager, but his parents sent him to work on the oil rigs with his grandfather due to his bad behavior.
After suffering a crushed leg in a life-changing rig accident, he came back to Vancouver. After a month of bartending, he booked his first lead role.
Alicia Witt
With several Hallmark Christmas movies under her belt, Alicia Witt has wowed fans as an actor, and when she released a hit single, "Talk To You."
