Elf Jr. Cast Interview with Molly McFarland!

Q: If you could spend one Christmas filled day with Buddy the Elf what would you do?

Elf Jr. Cast Interview with Marianna Luce!

Q: If you could spend one Christmas filled day with Buddy the Elf what would you do?  

A: I guess that the appropriate answer would be, “first we’ll make snow angels for 2 hours, then we’ll go ice skating, then we’ll eat a whole roll of toll house cookie dough as fast as we can, and then we’ll snuggle.” But I think that I would go Christmas tree shopping with Buddy. I love getting real trees each year, and I think that Buddy would have the perfect experience for choosing the right tree.

Q: What is your all time favorite Christmas/Holiday movie?  

A: My favorite Christmas movie is White Christmas. It is about a pair of retired veterans who decide to pursue a singing/acting career. One day, they meet two sisters who also sing and dance. They fall in love and decide to go on a Christmas vacation. I love this movie because it has great music, and it is hilarious! I would definitely recommend watching this laugh-out-loud Christmas movie!

Q: What is your all time favorite Christmas/Holiday memory?  

A: I have tons of heart warming holiday memories. I am very close to my family, and all of my grandparents live close by. But if I had to pick a favorite memory, I would say that my favorite Christmas memory is the Christmas musical that we put on with our cousins. I write the script and music, and my cousins work on costumes and choreography. When it is all said and done, we perform the play in front of grandparents and aunts and uncles. It is definitely not broadway worthy, but we try our best and always have a blast!

It never fails to make me laugh and our family has a lot of inside jokes because of it!

Q: What is your all time favorite Christmas/Holiday memory?   

A: My favorite holiday memory was in third grade when I got my puppy, Grizzie! I had begged for a dog for a long time and then I specifically saw and asked for her. I came into the family room on Christmas morning and this little ball of white fluff ran straight into my arms!!
