There’s a new Christmas movie airing on Friday, Dec. 3, and it will feature not one, not two… not even three… but four familiar faces to GENERAL HOSPITAL viewers! Back in September, we reported that GH alums Teresa Castillo (ex-Sabrina) and Mark Lawson (ex-Dustin) were joining Donnell Turner (Curtis) in the Christmas-themed movie Most Wanted Santa. Now, as the comedy is set to premiere very soon, comes word that Carolyn Hennesy (Diane) appears in the film as well!
Set in Los Angeles, Most Wanted Santa stars Denyse Lawton as FBI Agent Harper Winslow, who is partnered with Castillo’s Carly Lopez, a detective with the Seattle P.D., to hunt down the mysterious “Santa” who has been stealing priceless artwork during the holiday season. A strong friendship is formed between the two women during their investigation, but things get complicated when they realize that Harper’s sexy new friend and fellow art lover Christopher North (played by Turner) is their prime suspect! Will Carly and Harper put aside their differences in order to serve justice? Lawson plays Carly’s colleague at the police station, Captain Matthew McDowell, and Hennesy appears in the movie as Rose.
“Just two more days ‘til I get to share the screen with these familiar faces,” Castillo raved on Instagram in a post promoting the romcom’s upcoming premiere.
“This film was exactly what I needed at the exact time I needed it,” GH star Turner replied to an Instagram post shared by director Kristin Fairweather. “Thank you for choosing me as your Chris and for creating a safe space for me to create and embody this role.”
Filmed in Los Angeles earlier this fall, Most Wanted Santa is the second original Christmas movie produced for Tubi, a free-with-ads streaming service. “Stream for free on the free Tubi app,” Castillo told her followers. “[It’s] also available in the app store on your phone if your TV doesn’t have streaming capabilities.”
There’s plenty of other holiday movies, programs for kids, and classic television series available on Tubi TV, so check it out!
