Hilarie Burton Overjoyed To Discover Pam Grier In ‘A Christmas Wish’

0 270

Each year we are getting more and more holiday movies and this year is no different. Hilarie Burton is coming back with familiar co-stars to star in a Christmas movie. There is a sort of One Tree Hill reunion happening with Tyler Hilton, Ryan Cabrera Megan Park, and Lee Norris. “A Christmas Wish” is directed by Emily Moss Wilson and it is bringing us loads of holiday cheers. This is not it because we also want to talk about when Hilarie discovered that Pam Grier would also be starring in the movie.

Releasing this fall on November 28, 2019, the movie is directed by the same person who directed Drink and Christmas in Mississipi. According to Meaww, the plot is as follows:

A small wishing box is placed in a park in Ponchatoula annually during Christmas time. People come and write down their innermost desires on a paper and drop it in the box. Maddie (Megan Park) encourages her sister Faith (Hilarie Burton) to write down her desire to find true love and drop it inside that box. Coincidentally, they meet a handsome bachelor Andrew (Cristian de la Fuente). However, things start to become confusing for Faith as she starts to question whether Andrew is right for her. These thoughts become even more highlighted when she starts considering her best friend Wyatt (Tyler Hilton) as well. So, who is it going to be? Wyatt or Andrew?

Hilarie Burton’s Love For Pam Grier

Hilarie adores Pam Grier and she clearly showed her love for the 70s star in her Instagram post. Pam Grier signed up for “A Christmas Wish” and she turned out to be one of Hilarie’s career heroes. She posted this sweet message for the star:

When you get to work with one of the GREATS, you kneel! When @dllewis82 and @emosswilson sent me the treatment for #achristmaswish , there was a magical role that demanded someone with a powerful presence. #PamGrier !!!! There was no one else in our minds. To our absolute delight, she said yes and was the first cast member aboard. They say not to meet your heroes, but that’s bullshit. Pam Grier is cooler, more beautiful, and warmer in real life than I could have ever predicted. Thanks to @mattsbelldp for capturing this moment of pure fandom. Also, shower caps are the only way to keep Louisiana humidity outta curly hair. Ha. Check out our new holiday movie on THANKSGIVING DAY, on @lifetimetv #itsawonderfullifetime #foxybrown

Hilarie Burton claims that it is not always true when they say not to meet your heroes in real life. Like Pam Grier, some of them can turn out to be more even more amazing than you could have thought.

Perhaps, that would be true for Burton when she meets Kate Middleton as well? She has expressed a desire to the Royal Duchess’ of Cambridge’s friend.
