Call me sappy but I actually enjoyed “Christmas with You,” I even shed a tear or two!  And I was trying to investigate that deep in my heart – why?  Was I having my low point moment?  Was I just feeling vulnerable?  Regardless, the cast and the film made me smile and feel Christmas!

Aimee Garcia is a fading diva who is forced to make a Christmas song.  She found her inspiration in a fan, played by Deja Monique Cruz.  Her dad is played by Freddie Prinze Jr.  You probably can imagine how it ends but the journey is sweet, and funny, and heartfelt.

I spent some time with Prinze Jr. and Garcia to talk about their interest in the film, their characters, and how they made making tamales look so sexy!

“Christmas with You” is now out on Netflix.

I had a great time talking to Deja Monique Cruz who plays the daughter of Freddie Prinze Jr. in the new Netflix Christmas rom-com “Christmas with You” starring Aimee Garcia from director Gabriela Tagliavini.

In this interview, we talked about her interest in making the film, her character of Cristina, and what does Christmas mean to her?

Gabriela Tagliavini is excited for fans to see her new Holiday rom-com on Netflix titled “Christmas with You.”  She shares her directing style in making sure the film is fresh and even talks about what Christmas means for her.
