Can you tell us a bit about your character in Christmas with a Kiss?

RONNIE ROWE JR.: Dez is a journalist from New York that is visiting Milton to do a write up on a small town Christmas. While working on the story he meets Mona and the journey begins.

What initially attracted you to your role in Christmas with a Kiss?

RONNIE ROWE JR.:  What attracted me to the role was the story of a live triangle that didn’t vilianize either of the men, they were both great choices in their own right and I liked how if done correctly, the story would keep people guessing.

What do you think makes the romance in the movie so special and captivating?

RONNIE ROWE JR.: What makes the Romance special is that it come ls when you least expect it and have no expectation, it was built from organic interaction and time.

What do you hope audiences take away from watching Christmas with a Kiss?

RONNIE ROWE JR.: I hope people take away a true human experience, being torn between 2 people is a real thing, but in this film I think that Mona (Misheal) handled it in a way people can learn from.

What was it like working with the rest of the cast on set?

RONNIE ROWE JR.: It was amazing, the entire cast and crew were such a pleasure to be around, it had a very family feeling on set and I feel that is reflective on the work we brought to the film.

What can you tease about your character Journey?

RONNIE ROWE JR.: Hmmm he’s a straight shooter and sometimes his honesty can get him in trouble.

What was your favorite scene or moment while filming Christmas with a Kiss?

RONNIE ROWE JR.: I have a few, but the one the jumps out to me is when Dez and Fletcher (Jamie Callica) meet for the first time…it was hilarious to me!

Can you tell us about any challenges you faced while filming Christmas with a Kiss and how you overcame them?

RONNIE ROWE JR.: This filming experience was really smooth, everyone was a pleasure to be around and work with, but I think it starts from the top and Misheal and director Roger Bob always came in with great uplifting energy. But if I run into any obstacles, I pray! 

Change of subject, What have been some of the most memorable projects you have worked on throughout your career, and why?

RONNIE ROWE JR.: All of my projects have been special in some way shape or form. Black Cop directed and written by Cory Bowles because it was my first film being premiered at Tiff. The Porter because I got to tell an important historical story and pay homage to the leaders that paved a way for me to be in the situation I am currently I today and Star Trek because I have always been a fan and to be part of such an accomplished franchise was huge for me.

Can you tease something about your next projects?

RONNIE ROWE JR.: I got some stuff cooking and can’t give all the detail, but one show is on Amazon and the other is on Netflix.
