Two child stars are getting together in a brand new film this holiday season!
Soleil Moon Frye famous for her role as Punky Brewster in the popular ’80s series was cast in a new Christmas movie for the 2019 season called ‘Staging Christmas.’ She will be joined by a fellow child star, Jaleel White aka Steve Urkel in the Lifetime flick.
What is Staging Christmas about?
Soleil Moon Frye will portray Lori who stages homes for a living. Though she normally only stages her homes for sale, she gets an unusual request that perks her interest. A wealthy widower named Elliott (Stults) wants to hire her to stage his home for the holidays to help cheer up his daughter, Maddie.
As Lori spends more time with Elliott and his daughter, she becomes closer to them, feeling like a real family. Jaleel White portrays Mr. Lexington, more to come on the details of his character.
What Have Soleil & Jaleel Been Up To?
Soleil Moon Frye is making her return to acting in Lifetime’s ‘Staging Christmas’ plus reviving the character of Punky Brewster for a new series which is currently in the works.
Jaleel White recently appeared in a few episodes of Disney’s ‘Raven’s Home’ co-starring Raven Symone, playing Chris Spring-Lake. Last spring, he took his young daughter on a trip to Walt Disney Studios. See the adorable pictures.
