Warning : this blog contains spoilers.
We already have a detailed synopsis
for Summer Glau's upcoming Christmas movie 'Help for the Holidays' and adorable promo stills
of Summer as an elf but an element of the script has remained unnoticed until now.
We suspected that Summer's character Christine Prancer would fall in love in the movie (see previous blogpost
) and now the following detailed plot summary reveals that actor John Brotherton will play Dave Gabriel, the kid's uncle and also Christine's love interest :
'HELP FOR THE HOLIDAYS'
Hallmark Channel Original Movie World Premiere Sunday, December 9 (8p.m. ET/PT, 7C)
Starring: Summer Glau, Eva La Rue, Izabela Vidovic, Mason Cook, Dan Gauthier, John Brotherton
You know, it's hard out there for an elf. First of all, you live up in the North Pole, where there's really nothing much to do. No malls. A crummy dating scene. And good luck trying to find a decent restaurant. Now imagine that this elf is young and beautiful, and she's stuck making toys all day long - and all night long, too. This is the premise that launches "Help for the Holidays," a charming Hallmark Channel Original Movie World Premiere on Sunday, December 9 (8p.m. ET/PT, 7C). The film stars Summer Glau ("Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles") as Santa's elf Christine, a young lass busily making toys and getting bored to tears up in the Pole. Christine is convinced that this is pretty much as good as it's going to get when Santa receives an emergency wish from a little boy in Los Angeles. It seems that the boy is desperate for a genuine family Christmas with his too-busy clan, and it's Christine who gets dispatched to L.A. to help make it happen. She interviews to be the nanny for kids Ally (Izabela Vidovic, "Christmas Angel") and Will (Mason Cook," Spy Kids: All the Time in the World"), who are too often left unsupervised and dismissed as an afterthought by their parents Sara (Eva La Rue of "CSI: Miami") and Scott (Dan Gauthier of "One Life to Live"). Mom and Dad, you see, run a mega-successful holiday store, and as a result their kids too often get left without a real Christmas to call their own. After Christine becomes the nanny, everything falls into place nicely. The kids are happy with their new elf-turned-caregiver. And Christine even appears to be falling for their hunky uncle Dave (John Brotherton, "Jane by Design"). But then Sara starts feeling insecure about how much Christine has become entrenched in their lives and wants to send her packing back to the north. Oh no! Well, don't worry. We're hoping all will still end well in 'Help for the Holidays," because elves, after all, deserve happiness, too.
John Brotherton is a 32 year old American actor, best known for playing Jared Banks on the ABC soap opera One Life to Live from August 10, 2007 until November 2009.
Brotherton appeared on the CW's primetime show, The Game, as well as in tv shows like Friends with Benefits (NBC), Dexter (Showtime) or CSI (CBS). The actor also appeared in a handful of feature films, including Gone, Surprise, Surprise, and Taken by Force.
There's more in 'Help for the Holidays' than a Christmas spirit wake-up call, the propect of seing Summer Glau's character falling in love certainly adds to the interest of the movie. Another good reason to watch it on December 9th at 8pm on The Hallmark Channel.
