In the Lifetime TV movie The Christmas Gift, journalist Megan (Michelle Trachtenberg) is trying to find her Secret Santa, the little boy who gave her a special gift twenty years ago. She wants to thank him for a writing journal — a gift that had a great impact on her life. When Megan’s editor boss (Rick Fox) assigns her to a Christmas story, Megan locates her Secret Santa — now a handsome young man — and they fall in love.
Megan’s Secret Santa is portrayed by Sterling Sulieman. He’s appeared on many TV shows including Modern Family, The Client List and NCIS: Los Angeles. He’s best known for his recurring roles on The New Normal (Clint), Pretty Little Liars (Nate St. Germain), The Vampire Diaries (Harper), 24 (CTU Agent Jim), and All My Children (Dre Woods). Fun fact about Sulieman: He graduated from the same high school as President Obama, Punahou High School in Oahu, Hawaii. The Christmas Gift premieres on Lifetime on November 29 at 8pm.
