In the Lifetime TV movie Last Chance for Christmas, Santa’s stable hand John must find a substitute reindeer to fill in for Prancer who injured his hoof. He finds the perfect solution in Frankie but it turns out the reindeer belongs to Annie (Hilarie Burton), a single mom who doesn’t believe in Santa. John is working on a tight schedule – it’s almost Christmas! – and convincing a grown woman (one who you’re falling in love with) that Santa really exists ain’t easy.
John is portrayed by Gabriel Hogan. The Canadian actor is best known for his roles on Heartland (Peter Morris), King (Danny Sless), The Dating Guy (Anderson Anderson), Rent-a-Goalie (Lance), The Best Years (Patrick), Robson Arms (Andrew Colton), and Traders (Ian Farnham). Americans will recognize him from Teen Wolf (Belasko) and NCIS (Commander Pete Grady). Last Chance for Christmas premieres on Lifetime on December 6 at 9pm.
