Hallmark’s Countdown to Christmas continues with the romantic and funny Nantucket Noel. This movie is based on the Nancy Thayer Novel, Let It Snow.
Nantucket Noel stars Trevor Donovan (90210, USS Christmas), Sarah Power (Good Witch, Killjoys), Payton Lepinski (Overboard, Holiday Hearts), Daniel Bacon (A Christmas Treasure, You, Me & The Christmas Trees), Fiona Vroom (Snowpiercer, Power Rangers), and Bruce Dawson (White Noise, Christmas By Starlight).
What Is Nantucket Noel About?
According to the Hallmark press release, Christina (Power) is a toy store owner who inherited the shop on the Nantucket wharf from her mom. Her mother recently passed away, and she is having a hard time moving on.
Andy (Donovan) is a confident, driven, real estate developer. He is visiting his father on Nantucket with his young daughter Wink (Lepinski). However, Christina is dismayed when she learns Andy and his father plan to redevelop the wharf into a new marina. If this happens, she may have to give up the toy store that has such deep personal meaning and is part of her family’s legacy.
However, Andy’s perspective is a bit different. He and his dad see the wharf as needing to be refreshed. In addition, they want to refurbish the dock area in memory of Andy’s late wife.
Christina also discovers she has feelings for Andy but being on opposite sides of the development project could nip their romance in the bud.

From The Hallmark Director
Hallmark’s Nantucket Noel is directed by Kirsten Hansen. This is her first full-length movie. In addition, she is a co-writer, based on the Nancy Thayer script. Moreover, Kirsten is truly excited about this movie. She especially is thrilled about her two leading ladies, Sarah Power and Payton Lepinski.
The excited director wrote about her upcoming movie on Instagram.
“Wait, look, is that it? Yes… The premiere of #NantucketNoel is just around the corner!”
“In just 6 days, you will finally get to meet the enigmatic, funny, charming, smiles when she speaks, one of those classic beauties you can’t take your eyes off of… @sarahspower, who plays our lovely leading lady Christina Antoni. Sarah blew me away every day with her gift and her loveliness… she never once missed a line (and she had 8 pages every day to memorize)! Still in awe of her talent… and how she embodied the depth and humour of this complex role with such authenticity, grace, and nuance.”
“And I can’t wait for you to meet @lepinskipayton, a shining star who is sure to steal all of our hearts… and this scene with her improvised line, that might be my favourite line in the movie. 😂👏🏻 Payton is so naturally talented, funny, effervescent and was my first choice for the role. I couldn’t imagine anyone else playing the slightly precocious but very sweet, super fun, and incredibly loveable Wink Bittlesman.”
The premiere of Nantucket Noel is on Friday, November 19, at 8 p.m. Eastern, on the Hallmark Channel.
