Y&R’s Eileen Davidson Offers a Sneak Peek at Her New Holiday Movie


Fans may miss seeing Eileen Davidson as Ashley Abbott on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS regularly, but not renewing her contract with the soap has given the Emmy-winning actress the opportunity to pursue other roles, like starring in the new holiday film There Will Always Be Christmas. “Sometimes you get really lucky and the stars align,” Davidson gushed on Instagram about the project. “Great producers, cast, and crew.”

In the film, Davidson plays Alana D’Angelo, a mother who joins her daughter, Samantha, in planning a holiday concert to save the local high school after the dean’s death. But a terrible car accident leaves Sam’s life hanging in the balance, and Alana turns to the school’s new maintenance man, Johnny, played by Michael Paré, for support. As his son, Max, makes a decision that will bring their families together, all of them question their values about sacrifice, family, and love while learning what it means to be thankful for another Christmas.

Unfortunately, There Will Always Be Christmas isn’t coming out this holiday season. It was filmed this year for release in 2020, so there is no information yet regarding how or when it will be released but we will be sure to keep you updated as more details are released.

Davidson did share a backstage peek at the making of her movie and you can see her personal photos in the special gallery below!
