This weekend began "Life is a wonderful life." The network aims to compete on the Hallmark Channel with its holiday output. Tonight There's No Time Like Christmas is the third holiday movie of the weekend, and it's only October. Kyla Pratt stars in There is no time like Christmas and she was eager to get into the Christmas season, shooting the movie in the summer to air it on time.
Pratt plays Emma, a workaholic CEO who visits bed and breakfast in Vermont to prepare her big presentation. There she finds her old flame Fletcher (Edward Ruttle), who plays Christmas in town. Connecting to Fletcher and promoting the game distracts Emma from her job, and perhaps this is the best. Pratt talks with Showbiz's Cheat Sheet on There's No Time Like Christmas airing tonight at 8am for life.
Christmas Has Come Early for Kyla Pratt
To be ready for airing on October 27, Lifetime had to shoot No Time Like Christmas this past summer. That was fine with Pratt.
"I'm happy it wasn't [filmed in winter] because we shot it in Winnipeg, Canada and I hear their winters are not very nice," Pratt said. "I'm a real girl from L.A. When I'm 70, 65 I like, "Do you have a coat? Anyone have a jacket? "I think it goes below zero, so I was happy to be there in the summer."
How they faked winter in "No Time Like Christmas"
This was not Kyla Pratt's first Rodeo with a lifelong Christmas movie. They have a system for counterfeiting it.
"It was warm with fake snow," Pratt said. "I made a movie last year. It was my first time learning about shooting a Christmas movie in the summer and I had a big wig and then I had layers and layers of clothes and jackets and scarves. You still can't walk around like you're about to exit. You have to walk around like [shivering] oh, it freezes. I think this was the hardest actress of all. "
The play upset Kyla Pratt
In the play Emma sings Quiet Night and the original song.
"The hardest part for me was singing and I think it works in my favor because I was extremely nervous Pratt said. "So I was so Emma had to be nervous, right? Because she doesn't act, so it's good to look nervous, right? And they are like yes, it's good if you look nervous. I'm great so m this anxiety in real life went to Emma, so it happened to me. "
Now Kyla Pratt can't wait for Christmas
With No Time Like Christmas it's time for Kayla Pratt to start
"Christmas in my house is everything," Pratt said. "We have boxes and boxes of ornaments from when I was younger and we just let them choose their favorite ones and then I go to gets them random dislikes or random little Nickelodeon characters, just whatever they like. We can do all the white lights, colored lights, what do you want to do? Let them use their imagination. "
Kayla Pratt wants to travel this holiday
Kayla Pratt may be a LA girl, but she has family everywhere and hopes to visit them this Christmas.
"I want my kids to celebrate white Christmas one year, so I think I'm actually doing it this year. I'm L.A. born and raised so I'm used to being home. It's nothing like home. I have a family in Louisiana, a family in Chicago. It's everywhere in Las Vegas. Sometimes we will go there because my grandmother lives in Vegas and we occasionally get some snow up there, but that's it. A friend of mine lives in New York and we're talking about possibly bringing our Christmas this year, so let's see. ”
