Huge shoutout to the incredible @danicamckellar for believing in me and guiding me through this incredible experience and also being an amazing dance partner. It’s all about teamwork! feeling blessed and ready to shine on the big screen! 🌟🎬

In turn, The Winter Palace star replied, “You were incredible to work with in every way!! And I am so excited for the world to see you shine in a whole new way, my friend!! 🌟🎬😎”

According to Danica’s Instagram, the two mentored each other. Gleb portrays her ex-fiancé and ex-dance partner who wind up working together again. That means lots of dance scenes. Also, David Haydn-Jones had to learn dance steps, as Danica dances with him as well. The Supernatural star has never danced in a movie before.

Haydn-Jones and McKellar had previously starred in My Christmas Dream. This is their first reunion since this classic movie.
