In the TV movie Ice Sculpture Christmas, aspiring chef Callie Shaw (Rachel Boston) gets her first job at a country club restaurant working under Chef Gloria (Brenda Strong). At the club, Callie literally bumps into her old childhood friend David Manning, who is a member of the country club. When the smitten David enters Callie in a holiday ice-sculpting contest — to be on his team — an ice-meltingl hot romance ensues.
David Manning is portrayed by David Alpay. The Canadian-born actor is best known for his roles on The Lottery (James), The Vampire Diaries (Atticus Shane), and The Borgias (Calvino). Alpay most recently appeared on the new hit drama Quantico (Duncan). Ice Scupture Christmas will premiere on the Hallmark Channel on November 7 at 8pm.
