“I´M GLAD IT´S CHRISTMAS”

Another Christmas adventure!

I shot a second Christmas movie in Ontario starring the beautiful

Jessica Lowndes and seven-time Grammy winner Gladys Knight,

which premiered November 26 on GAF.

Interview

A little chat about “I´m Glad it´s Christmas” with “Survived the Shows”

  1. What’s the main element in Jason’s character and the movie in general that fascinates you the most and drew you to join I’m Glad It’s Christmas? 

Jason is a musician and a jingle rider which I can relate to. He also has a daughter which I can relate to. He has a heart for the community which really drew me to him he grew up enjoying Santa Claus and instead of getting upset when he found out Santa isn’t real he decided that he was going to take over the job Sunday which he did. Which drew me mostly to the role was the fact that I could sing, I’ve always been looking for a character that scenes and rates and plays music, and then when I found out that Jessica Lowndes was going to be in this movie as well as Gladys Knight it was an easy yes. I also love shooting in Canada which is where we filmed the movie. And Brad Krevoy a producer I worked with many times before and had many successful movies and even the TV series when calls the heart was produced by Brad at MPCA so I enjoy working with him he always makes very good quality work.

  1. As we know quite well so far, GAC movies and shows always feature well-shaped and relatable characters – Where are you and Jason most similar and where most different as human beings?

We are the most similar in the terms of being a musician and a father. And most different is that Jason’s into show tunes and Broadway and jingles, and I am into gritty folk country music and some roots gospel.

  1. What’s been the biggest challenge for you in portraying Jason?

I didn’t find a lot of challenges in actually playing Jason, but we filmed six day weeks which meant we were working 80 hour weeks with only one day off and that was challenging the schedule was very tough and we had some obstacles to overcome, but obstacles I would make things epic. If everything always went smoothly… You probably would not be making a movie

  1. To all the fans looking forward to watching the movie, how would you describe I’m Glad It’s Christmas in just 3 words?

Nostalgia, romance, adventure

  1. What can you tease about Holly and Jason’s journey throughout the movie?

They’ve changed her name to Chloe… So the most I can tease is that just like any relationship they have a lot of things to overcome in order to come together, there’s some simple misunderstandings and some situations where they are making things much bigger than they need to be, dare I say dramatic. So the journey is not always smooth, but there’s a lot of chemistry a lot of laughter and a lot of romance… And a few almost kisses… And maybe a kiss at the end but I don’t wanna spoil it.

  1. Talking about the environment on set, how would you describe your experience while filming I’m Glad It’s Christmas and do you have any fun anecdotes to share?

Well we were shooting in a town called Sudbury Ontario and a TV show that I really like called Letterkenny shoots there so I really wanted to go visit the sat and meet the creator Jared Keeso because he’s one of Canada’s most talented comedians and writers. And I got a chance to go on set thanks to our producer David Anselmo so that was a really cool piece to being in town. Also I played several live shows on live stream but also I played at two local bars and two nursing homes… So I was a busy boy but I like to always give back and one way I do that is finding retirement centers and performing music for the seniors there. One of the things that made this movie so fun was Jessica and I both sing and we were singing pretty much every moment that we weren’t acting so behind the scenes we were just seen in the sing and she would show me a song and I would try to learn a guitar, and then I would you were song and we would write some harmonies and then we would record it. Many of those are available on paulgreeneofficial my Instagram and also my TickTock. They’ve also made their way to a BTS part of my website which is www.paulgreene. Jess can I will get up early some mornings and walk down the highway to a really good coffee spot that was kind of in a field and we would talk about the scenes that day and then sit down in the coffee shop and sip our coffee’s next to a fireplace that didn’t work and then walk back towards the hotel sometimes at six in the morning so we would be able to really dig into the day. Which I love. Jessica is a very hard worker, and just such an incredible singer and scene partner we got along famously and literally laughed the entire time. Successful movie for me is when you have laugh attacks in the middle of the scene and you have to fight to pull it together even though it’s not always convenient for a busy shooting schedule it reminds me to have fun and that what I’m doing is a pure gift and pure joy

  1. If you could choose any other character from I’m Glad It’s Christmas, apart from Jason that you would have loved to play, which one would it be and why?

I guess the only other character that would’ve been fun was Chloe Jessica’s character just because of the obstacles in the journey and the singing although the type of singing that jessica did is very different from the type of thing I do so that would’ve been a big challenge as well. But you know we had to go in the studio and record the song which I think is a huge hit for Christmas song which is called Christmas feels like falling in love and it was more of a show tune which I had to sing differently in the studio and on set, so that was a good challenge but I like that stuff.

  1. Did you take anything from set, any prop or piece of costume, to remember your experience as Jason?

There was a very shiny red sequin jacket that my character was going to wear in the final scene and it didn’t happen and I ended up getting that piece of clothing and it’s super flashy and amazing. And I’ll always take a big piece of Sudberry back home with me because I am from the north of Canada been on the west side and I just love small towns and small town people and of Canada.

“It’s about a place where you lose and find yourself at the same time. It’s about the fact that despite all the bullsh!t, egos, and pretentions that placate most of us, a person who seeks their truth, who is open to their higher self, can find magic and miracles in a spiritual journey.” 

Here is some BTS of the shoot, which turned into an intense shamanic ritual for all of us involved.
