There are many Christmas movies debuting on a variety of platforms this holiday season. In 2019, music superstar, actress and past CYInterview guest, Kelly Rowland of Destiny’s Child [see here] debuted in the first of three Christmas movies in a series about a family spending the holiday season together. The series premiered on Lifetime TV.
This coming Saturday, November 27th, the third installment of that movie trilogy, Merry Liddle Christmas Baby, will air on the cable channel.
Starring alongside Kelly Rowland, in this movie franchise, has been actress Bresha Webb. In the Merry Liddle film series, Ms. Rowland plays a hardworking professional named Jacquie. Ms. Webb plays one of her two sisters, Kiara.
In Merry Liddle Christmas Baby, Bresha’s character has an expanded role. Speaking about what this run of Christmas movies has been like for her, Ms. Webb said this:
“It’s more than a cast. It’s more than just, you know, doing a movie. We’ve all become, as a cast, family. You know, we’ve shared moments with each other, you know, Kelly was pregnant for the last one while we were filming, we dealt with the pandemic while we were filming as well. So, we’ve gone through a lot of things behind the scenes that have really made us a close family, knit cast.”
This film also features more screen time for Bresha’s character Kiara:
“So that was just fun to play, to see more of my life as a mom, and my life’s love and figuring those things out and I’m excited to share a lot more of Kiara with the audience.”
While filming this Christmas movie series, the actress also found love. Additionally, Kelly Rowland helped her now fiancé pick out an engagement ring for Bresha:
“I met my fiancé while I was filming this second Merry Liddle Wedding, when we did Merry Liddle Wedding. And I went in quarantine single and came out of quarantine before the movie with a boyfriend. And so, I shared my falling in love with her while we were filming the movie. So we’ve been super tight and my fiancé was like, ‘You know, it’s time to take Bresha. Can you help me?’ And she did. She came out and she went shopping with him and I had no idea and it was a huge surprise, super sweet. It was perfect and she had a lot to do with it. And I’m very happy with how things turned out.”
Last year, Bresha was a lead actress in the Tyler Perry Netflix movie A Fall from Grace. She starred alongside Cicely Tyson, Phylicia Rashad and Crystal Fox. Though there are many unresolved issues at the end of the film, the actress said a second movie is not yet certain:
“I don’t know. I have no idea. Mr. Perry has not mentioned anything to me. I mean, he did say right after that he was, you know, inspired to write another version of A Fall from Grace, but as of right now, I don’t know.”
Getting to work with legendary actress Cicely Tyson on A Fall from Grace was an incredible experience for her. She shared with us what the late Ms. Tyson told her:
“She let me know that she was proud of me and she saw me and she said, ‘You are funny and you are a light.’ And she said, ‘And for you, the sky’s the limit.’ She said, ‘You can do it all. Don’t stop at nothing.’ So, I will cherish that forever.”
Bresha also talks about her role in the TV series Run the World and what she likes most about Las Vegas, among other topics.
