HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Daily Star) 2017/11/11 – “I’m in this teeny tiny town,” says A Song For Christmas star Becca Tobin. “I run into this young girl. She’s so friendly, like everybody in this town, and invites me to stay with her an her family on their Christmas tree farm. She has this brother, who’s very handsome, also a musician. I won’t spoil it, but there might be sparks flying. Just a really beautiful story about family and holidays and music. It’s got it all. ”
“I was going into my room to write music and I didn’t want to be disturbed,” says Tobin. “So the bus driver thought I was in there. But, I got little carried away looking at all the holiday decorations in town, and got carried away with a cute boy. The bus took off.”
“It was really nice it was a busy two months,” says Tobin. “But I wanted to. I didn’t want to spend a year dragging it out. Being an actor you don’t know where you’re going to be or what country your going to be in. So I was like, we have two months free so lets do it. He was great he’s so good at planning party’s it was easy for him.
“I love donuts,” says Tobin. “If I want to cheat or have a treat it’s a donut. My husband and I did long distance from Atlanta to L.A. for a year and a half. There’s a donut shop in Atlanta that I’am obsessed with. Every time I would visit I would get them every day. Then he would come visit me in L.A. put them in his carry on, the donuts, and make it all the way from Atlanta to L.A. and not have touched a donut, saved it for me. I, however, could never do that.”
