Sarah Drew returns to Lifetime this weekend, starring in Twinkle All the Way, her second Christmas film for the network in as many years. She stars as Cadence Clark, an over-achieving, over-organizing and over-multi-tasking wedding planner, trying to pull off the promise she made to her best friend – the creation of the best holiday-themed wedding of her career – if snowstorms and a host of setbacks don’t prevent her from doing so. For Drew, the character hit close to home. “She’s neurotic and very tightly wound, but adept,” she laughed during an interview with MediaVillage. “I called her a functional neurotic. I’m a little bit of all those things, in that I’m a perfectionist to a fault in terms of focus and work. The first weekend of production in Toronto, I got together with my co-stars Ryan McPartlin (pictured at top with Drew) and Brian Sills for a breakfast/work session that turned into nine hours. We found little beats and moments that connected the three of us. The chemistry is so important because if it’s not there the movie is not going to work.
