“It’s such an honor to have both of you here. ‘A Royal Christmas Crush’ has become a fan favorite, and I must say, it’s perfect for our ‘Christmas in July’ programming event. Katie, can you tell us a bit about your character Ava Jensen?

KATIE CASSIDY: Yes, I play Eva Jensen, who is an architect who has recently gone through a divorce. And it’s coming out the other side. This is sort of the next chapter of her life. She gets invited by her uncle to help him design and build the Royal Ice Hotel or Royal Ice Castle for the royal family in Freeland. And she decides to go and. Accidentally stumbles upon this handsome Prince, who may or may not sweep her off her. May or may not sweep her off her feet, but she’s very much all about the environment and building, you know, sustainable homes and that are more affordable for mass majority of population in America. And you know what? A better person than someone in royalty in power. To help bring awareness to the situation to.

Stephen, What initially attracted you to the role of Prince Henry in “A Royal Christmas Crush”?

STEPHEN HUSZAR: Well, who doesn’t want to be a Prince? Come on, this is the opportunity. This is the first time for me playing a Prince, playing someone in royalty. So right away I was very excited. Also, I come from a very cold place. I was born in a very northern town in Canada, which is kind of like free Orland and so I thought I could, I thought I could relate a lot to the character. Always so cold, always so cold. Also there was an opportunity to have an accent and just when I when I found out this was going to be my Co star, well obviously I was going to accept the role.

What message or feeling do you hope viewers will take away from watching “A Royal Christmas Crush” ?

KATIE CASSIDY: Everyone I think loves a love story and it’s a very warm hearted movie and I hope that they just want to see more because we want to feel more. It was really fun.
