‘A Homecoming for the Holidays’ premieres Dec. 7 at 9 p.m. and HL spoke EXCLUSIVELY with star Stephen Huszar in regards to the ‘heartwarming’ Hallmark movie and what made him cry throughout filming.
Hallmark’s Christmas film lineup continues with A Homecoming for the Holidays, which can at 9 p.m. on the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. HollywoodLife talked EXCLUSIVELY with Stephen Huszar, who performs Matt within the movie, all about what we will anticipate from this newest vacation film. “A Homecoming for the Holidays is a beautiful little movie a couple of budding nation music star who’s simply beginning off in her profession after we first meet her. She has a variety of excessive aspirations to be a star, however she’s simply form of getting her toes moist and that’s when my character, Matt, meets her,” Stephen advised HollywoodLife. “Charlotte is performed by Laura Osnes. Matt is nearly to be deployed to Afghanistan. It’s his third deployment and he’s having somewhat little bit of hesitation with it. It’s form of taking a toll on him and he’s somewhat bit not sure of his future. However, this opportunity encounter along with her actually places a spark in each of their eyes so there’s one thing to stay up for there when he returns.”
Stephen revealed that the film flashes ahead three years later and rather a lot has modified for Matt and Charlotte. “In that time, we find out that Charlotte has now become a big country music star,” Stephen continued. “She’s super famous and our characters end up meeting in the actual small town where we initially met just before my character got deployed. The majority of the movie is really building our relationship during her stardom and Matt being an army vet now. He’s now heading up a large non-profit organization called Operation Homefront, which basically supplies ex-military people with shelter and really integrates them back into the community. It’s a really heartwarming film that actually incorporates a real charitable organization.”
The actor needed to tackle the position of Matt as a result of he’d by no means performed a navy character like this earlier than. “I ave performed a navy character otherwise and it was in a TV present known as Fringe and that whetted my urge for food, however I’ve by no means taken a personality during from being within the navy to ex-military and giving again to the group. I believed that it will be attention-grabbing to discover that and see how that felt.” He gushed that he cherished working with Laura whom he known as an “incredible actor and one of the most amazing human beings I’ve ever met. She’s so generous and such a beautiful soul.”
Laura sings within the movie and Stephen admitted that he received somewhat emotional listening to her. “I literally cried listening to Laura sing during a couple of the takes,” he mentioned. “It really touched me deeply and I really hope the music is going to do the same for the audience. It’s just such a heartwarming experience to have such great musicians in the movie. I think it really brings a lot to these kinds of productions.”
A Homecoming for the Holidays isn’t Stephen’s first vacation film. He’s starred in different vacation movies like Mistletoe Magic, Return to Christmas Creeok, Hometown Holiday, and extra. “I feel that at the root of it all, I just really love Christmas,” Stephen mentioned about doing vacation motion pictures. “I love family. Family is the most important thing that’s in my life. Christmas is an inspirational time of year and these films really represent that. It really brings people together and brings people back to core values as humans. I just really enjoy doing that and to have an opportunity to do comedy, which I do often in these movies. I love to make people laugh and be more lighthearted. I think people get a lot out of that. There’s a lot of content these days that’s darker and deals with serious issues, which we need. But it’s important for people to hear these kinds of stories, too.”
There have been so many vacation motion pictures through the years and Stephen really has an thought for one he’d like to do. “I actually grew up racing sailboats and there’s one thing I’ve always wanted to do in a film and I know it’s going to happen,” Stephen advised HollywoodLife. “I would love to do something about sailing a boat and having a story based around that. Of course, there would have to be a love story. I’m just putting that out there. That would be a dream come true for me.”
