The cast of 'Christmas in Evergreen' are excited to be back on-set!
The ladies of Evergreen are excited to return to their cheery roles in the upcoming Hallmark film. Actress Rukiya Bernard shared a touching Instagram message about being the lead in the Christmas movie. "I’m a lead in a @hallmarkchannel Christmas movie!!! I wanted to say something profound about reaching this point in my career, but words escaped me," she posted alongside a series of pictures from the set.
She continued, "As a dark skin Black actress who’s rocked braids or natural hair her whole career, rarely seeing other people who look like me on screen, I can’t stress how [much] #representationmatters when you want your dreams to come true. In paying it forward, I hope my simply being in this movie will be one small nudge to help some young up and coming actress who looks like me believe that it’s possible for her too. And if she/he/they don’t see themselves in me, maybe they’ll see themselves in one of the five other BIPOC characters featured in this diverse and inclusive #Christmas story."
Rukiya is joined by fellow actors Holly Robinson Peete (Michelle), Antonio Cayonne (Elliot Lee), Barbara Niven (Carol), Marci T. House (Sonya), Malcolm Stewart (Joe), and more for the next Christmas in Evergreen installment.
Christmas in Evergreen: Bells Are Ringing airs Saturday, Dec. 5, at 8 p.m. ET on the Hallmark Channel.
