In the TV movie Northpole: Open For Christmas, businesswoman Mackenzie Reed (Lori Loughlin) inherits her aunt’s once-majestic now-rundown inn and decides to sell the property at Christmastime. She needs to fix it up a bit before putting it on the market. At the inn she meets and tries to manage the staff which includes the handsome handyman Ian (Dermot Mulroney). Together they work with a magical elf named Clementine who was sent by Santa in the Northpole to help out…and to help Mackenzie “rediscover the joy of Christmas.”
Clementine is portrayed by Bailee Madison. She’s best known for her roles on the TV shows Once Upon a Time (Young Snow White), Good Witch (Grace Russell), The Fosters (Sophia Quinn), Trophy Wife (Hillary Harrison), and Wizards of Waverly Place (Maxine Russo). Madison is also recognized for her roles in the films Just Go with It, Bridge To Terabithia, Brothers, and Guillermo del Toro’s Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark. Northpole: Open For Christmas will premiere on the Hallmark Channel on November 21 at 8pm.
