In the Lifetime TV movie The Christmas Gift, a ten-year-old girl named Megan receives a Secret Santa gift that she never forgets — a writing journal. “Twenty years ago, when I really needed it, a little boy gave me a Christmas gift,” she says. Now a professional journalist, Megan wants to find that anonymous, generous boy and thank him. While seeking the perfect Christmas story to write, she finally figures out who her Secret Santa is… and finds love along the way.
Megan is portrayed by Michelle Trachtenberg. The 30-year-old New York native is best known for her roles on Gossip Girl (Georgina Sparks), Weeds (Emma Karlin), Mercy (Nurse Chloe Payne), Six Feet Under (Celeste), Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Dawn Summers) and The Adventures of Pete & Pete (Nona Mecklenberg). The Christmas Gift premieres on Lifetime on November 29 at 8pm.
