In the Hallmark Channel TV movie Christmas Incorporated, Riley Vance (Shenae Grimes-Beech) is a young woman who’s struggling to pay her bills in New York City. She miraculously gets a job with William Young, a wealthy entrepreneur but he’s “a bad-boy socialite type” who doesn’t understand how his business transactions affect the people around him. When he decides to close one of his factories just before Christmas — “I don’t celebrate Christmas,” he says — it’s up to Riley to talk him out of it.
William is portrayed by Steve Lund. The Canadian-born actor (Halifax, Nova Scotia) has appeared on many TV shows including Beauty and the Beast, Suits, and Nikita, but he’s best known for his roles on Bitten (Nick Sorrentino) and Haven (James Cogan/Colorado Kid). Christmas Incorporated isn’t Lund’s first appearance on The Hallmark Channel. The 6’3″ actor had the male lead role in Hallmark’s 2014 TV movie, Best Christmas Party Ever. Christmas Incorporated premieres on The Hallmark Channel on November 15 at 8pm.
