12 Celebrities You Forgot Starred In TV Christmas Movies
Made-for-TV movies often get a bad rap when it comes to criticisms of their plots and acting quality, but when it comes to made-for-TV Christmas movies it is an entirely different story. Channels such as Hallmark and Lifetime have made TV Christmas movies one of the biggest guilty pleasures of a large fanbase, and every Christmas season several new films in the genre are aired for fans who just can’t get enough of the cheesy romances. Now many other networks have gotten in on the popularity of these “so bad, they’re good” films and audiences will be surprised at the stars who have been in them! Check out 12 celebrities you probably forgot starred in TV Christmas movies:
12. Shannen Doherty – Christmas Caper
For most Shannen Doherty will forever be known for her roles as Brenda Walsh in Beverly Hills, 90210 and Prue Halliwell in Charmed, and while she hasn’t had many big roles since Charmed came to an end, she hasn’t stopped working. In 2007, Doherty starred in ABC Family’s original holiday film Christmas Caper as Cate Dove, a con woman who ends up in a small town Connecticut after she tries to hide from the law. In 2014, she once again tackled the TV Christmas movie genre with the role of Brenda Patterson in All I Want for Christmas.
11. David Hasselhoff – The Christmas Consultant
David Hasselhoff, aka “The Hoff,” is one of the most iconic TV stars because of his roles in series such as Knight Rider and Baywatch, and no one saw him becoming a made-for-TV Christmas movie star. After a slump in his career and some personal struggles, Hasselhoff returned to TV with the lead role in Lifetime’s original holiday film The Christmas Consultant in 2012. Hasselhoff was over the top as the Christmas consultant named Owen who is hired by Sabrina the Teenage Witch‘s Caroline Rhea to organize her Christmas because her work kept her too busy to do so. The movie truly is ridiculous, but that is what fans have come to expect and love about Lifetime’s Christmas movies.
