The Lifetime movie Wrapped Up in Christmas is about mall manager Heather Nash (Tatyana Ali). The young, single working woman usually loves the holidays — but this year she feels like the Grinch. Heather is forced to close a number of struggling stores in the mall. The good news is she falls for a handsome guy named Ryan (Brendan Fehr) who is a romantic. Unbeknownst to Heather, he’s playing the Santa in the mall and is trying to help his Aunt Patty (Cindy Pickett) keep her store open!
Heather gets a lot of support from her sister (Kim Fields), her mother Elise (Jasmine Guy) and her father Jim who is portrayed by Joseph Marcell. Joseph Marcell is best known for his role as Geoffrey the butler on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air with Tatyana Ali (who played young Ashley) and a guy named Will Smith. Marcell will appear next on the big screen in the drama The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind based on the novel by William Kamkwamba. It’s about a boy in Malawi who helps his village build a wind turbine. Marcell plays the Chief of the village. Wrapped Up In Christmas premieres on Lifetime on Saturday, November 25 at 8pm.
