The Hallmark Channel’s newest film, When I Think of Christmas, premieres Sunday, November 20 at 8:00 p.m. Eastern/7:00 p.m. Central. The film stars are Shenae Grimes-Beech, Niall Matter and Beth Broderick. Here’s everything you need to know about where ‘When I Think of Christmas’ was filmed and which cast members were involved in bringing the film to life.
When I Think of Christmas was filmed in the Vancouver region of Canada. The film was produced by Seasonal Road Productions LTD. under Front Street Pictures based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
Grimes-Beech shared a few snaps of her stay in BC during filming, which marked her first return to set in five years.
“First week back on set ready and dusted!!!” she wrote on Instagram.
She continued, “I can’t believe it’s been 5 years since I’ve been on a movie set. For 15 years this environment was my second home and I was so relieved that everything came back immediately like riding a bike!”
She also wasn’t that ready to leave after filming wrapped.
“BC, you are so damn beautiful. How are we ever going to leave this place?!” she wrote.
One fan replied: “There’s a reason it’s called Beautiful British Columbia ❤️”
Broderick posted a selfie on Twitter with Matter. Matter is known for not using social media much and keeping his internet interactions to a minimum, so it’s nice to have a selfie from the set.
She also posted on Instagram: “With the beautiful @shenaegrimesbeech. Watch this Sunday! #whenithinkofchristmas @hallmarkchannel . Don’t miss this!”
Broderick also shared her love for Vancouver in this next post, writing, “I’ve chosen a life that takes me from place to place to place. Some familiar and some exotic.”
“View from the seaplane yesterday. Stunning ride!” she wrote in another post.
