Meet the Cast of Christmas Ride: REAGAN BRITT MULLINS

Playing the role of April in “Christmas Ride,” rated PG is seven year old (six at the time of shooting) newcomer Reagan Britt Mullins. With only limited acting experience in school and church plays, Reagan took to the filming process quite easily.

This Bartlett Tennessee second grader prepared for each shoot and much to her parent’s pleasure kept up with her studies and didn’t miss a day of school.

When asked about her favorite part of the filming of Christmas Ride Reagan states “I had fun learning from Mr. Jeff (Yarbrough, Director of Photography) and Mr. H. T. (Altman, Principle Actor) and it was fun  having Russ (Russell Walden, Principle Actor) as a movie Brother”.

When asked about her favorite scene, Reagan said “I liked when Russ (Josh) and I snuck away in the Sheriff’s office and throwing leaves on Mr. H. T.  He was so silly”.

Reagan loves to play soccer and basketball and looks forward to starting third grade this fall. She is active in American Heritage Girls and earns badges like crazy.

Reagan has traveled the country with her parents and just returned from a trip to St Louis where she conquered her fears and made it to the top of the Arch.

Reagan looks forward to continuing her acting career and shooting more inspirational movies like Christmas Ride.

Meet the CR Cast: BRANDON RAY CONNELL

From Brandon: “I was adopted at age six, been raised in Covington, TN.   Currently working for Smith and Nephew and have my own place in Bartlett, TN by the Wolfchase Mall.   I love acting, meeting new people.   Very athletic and love my cars.

Jeff Yarbrough got me into helping him doing scenes with him and now I wish I was a Hollywood star.   In the movie Christmas ride I played one of the teen spirits.   I had a great time with the cast members.   It was really nice to just get out there and meet new people.   I wish the best to come for the movie.”
