New Movie: The Nutcracker

This might explain why Amy has been so quiet lately, she’s been busy filming a brand new Christmas movie for Hallmark! The official synopsis is posted below, courtesy of the sneak preview on the official Hallmark website. I think (& hope) that Amy is playing Lilly — it would be lovely to see Amy dancing on our screens!

Premieres Saturday December 10th 9/8c
Starring: Amy Acker (Person of Interest), Sascha Radetsky (Flesh and Bone)
Rising star, Lilly James lives and breathes ballet. Her sister, Beth, is not only her biggest fan but often forgoes her own needs to make sure Lilly has every opportunity possible. Lilly’s devotion pays off when she is accepted into the New York City Ballet. Her biggest dream comes true when she lands the lead role of Clara in The Nutcracker and will make her debut on Christmas Eve. As she prepares for her big night, she receives the tragic news that her sister has died. She is removed from the show by none other than Mark, her boyfriend and dance partner. Betrayed and heartbroken, she vows never to dance again. Years later, Lilly’s niece receives the same Christmas wish, the role of Clara in the prestigious Philadelphia Nutcracker Ballet, only to find that the Ballet Director is Mark, who betrayed Lilly years ago. Will Lilly see the truth about her past, and allow herself a second chance to dance and another chance to find love?
