Soaps.com has learned that several soap opera alums will be starring in a new Lifetime holiday movie entitled Christmas Harmony. Adam Mayfield, who played Scott Chandler on All My Children and Ted Carpenter on Days of our Lives will appear as Luke, The Young and the Restless alum, Peter Porte (Ricky Williams) has the role of Devin, and Grey’s Anatomy’s Chandra Wilson (Dr. Miranda Bailey), who appeared as Dr. Francine Massey on General Hospital plays Karen. Another celebrity who did a stint on GH, Sally Struthers (Jennifer Smith), also appears in Christmas Harmony as Shirley, and the final cast member with a soap opera connection is Lee Garlington, who appeared on Y&R in 2007 as Probation Officer Cavanaugh, and plays Debbie in the movie.
Mayfield promoted the film on his Instagram account and shared, “November 24th. This movie is very special. Made with a lot of love and great people! Can’t wait for y’all to see it.” In a video interview at the premiere, the actor talked about his character, Luke, as being “A guy’s guy, who sings like a guy’s guy.”
Christmas Harmony surrounds the story of Harmony, played by Kelley Jakle of the Pitch Perfect movies, a young woman who has been living in the shadow of her celebrity boyfriend, a pop star.
