In the Hallmark Channel movie Christmas at Dollywood, Danica McKellar (Winnie on The Wonder Years) plays Rachel, an event planner in New York City. She leaves the Big Apple and returns home to Tennessee where she’s been hired to plan the big Christmas celebration at Dollywood, the family entertainment destination owned by country music icon Dolly Parton. [So many Hallmark movies, streaming here.]
When Rachel arrives in town, the handsome but hurt head of operations Luke (Niall Matter) — who thinks he can handle the party just fine on his own — does not welcome her with open arms. Don’t worry, that chip on his shoulder falls and yes they fall in love.
In the post above, McKellar wrote that working with Dolly Parton was “MAGICAL.” Pop star Avril Lavigne replied, “Amazing dude!!!!” And actor Wil Wheaton (Stand by Me, Star Trek, The Big Bang Theory) wrote: “OMG YOU MET DOLLY PARTON OMG OMG.”
When not filming a Hallmark movie, McKellar is either working out or flaunting those killer abs in a bikini.
Check out the photos (above and below, make sure to swipe!) of her and her husband living it up at the legendary Hearst Castle!
Christmas at Dollywood premieres on Hallmark Channel on Sunday, December 8 at 8 pm.
