#11 Andrew W. Walker
Every year at this time television stations haul out their holiday movies. Problem is, most of them we have seen before. Now there are some movies like Miracle on 34th Street you can pull out every season, but I am getting a little tired of the countless replays of The Santa Clause, Elf and Home Alone. Don't get me wrong, they're all ok flicks but sometimes in order to really enjoy them you need to take a Christmas off from the same ole same ole. Between now and the end of the month, in 12 Days, I am going to feature movies you may not have seen, and of course the hunks who star in them. Hopefully there will be at least one movie, and one actor, that might bring a little joy to your holidays.
Ok, to be honest, I did not actually make my way through A Bride For Christmas in it's entirety. Not because I wasn't interested, but because my DVR cut off most of the second half of the movie. I recorded the film because it's male lead was Andrew W. Walker (#11), an actor whose career I have been following since first posting about him in a Birthday piece back in 2008.
The Montreal born actor has eyes and face made for close ups, and regardless of what his dialogue is, directors are wise to feature and linger on close-ups of the actor and that incredible face! Andrew has been a fixture on American and Canadian television (and movies) since the early 90's. Andrew has made appearances on shows from E.R, NYPD Blue, The Big Bang Theory, Reba, Sabrina The Teenage Witch and a couple of the CSI's.
Andrew makes the perfect lead for a Lifetime holiday film, and A Bride For Christmas wasn't his only one. Andrew also appears in Finding Mrs. Clause, another flick I think is playing this week. If you scroll down however, enjoying staring into Andrew's eyes, and maybe a bit lower, you can clearly see that although Lifetime movies are fine, that face belongs on the big screen.
