Interview With Madison Smith | Write Before Christmas

Mercy: Can you share a little bit about yourself? 
Madison: Absolutely! I was born in Kelowna, British Columbia, but I grew up in a place called Prince George. I played sports basically my whole life - baseball in the summer, hockey in the winter, and when I was older I played both year round. I even threw in a year of football when I was in the 11th grade. But once sports came to an end I was looking for a path to pursue and my mom suggested I give acting a try. Acting was something I always wanted to do but it never seemed like an option where I was from. I wish I could go back and talk to a young Madison and tell him that it was. 

Mercy: What started your interest in acting? 
Madison: TV and movies were always such a big part of my life and my family's life in general. Some of our greatest memories include watching TV or movies together and discussing them after. That love for entertainment fueled my passion for acting and it felt like the perfect option. Just goes to show how well your mom really knows you. 

Mercy: Can you tell us a little bit about White Before Christmas? Any bts stories you can share?
Madison: Well I’m proud to say that White Before Christmas is my first Hallmark Christmas movie! I’ve been doing Hallmark projects for a long time but it’s nice to finally get a chance to be part of the holiday season. I really enjoyed reading the script. It was nice for Hallmark to do a “Love Actually” type movie that followed a few different interconnecting storylines and I think we pulled it off great!  As for behind the scenes, it’s generally well-known that Hallmark movies for the Christmas season are filmed in the summer. Which means that we filmed our snowball fight in the middle of summer, but we used real snow! The funniest part was in order to stop the snow from melting into the ground they put on a large tarp and as it melted the water became a giant pool. Our director Pat decided to have a little bit of fun with me and by the time the scene was over and we had gotten all the shots we needed he decided to have me to fall backwards as if I got hit by a snowball into the giant pool! It wasn’t until afterwards I found out that the shot was for nothing but to see me get extremely wet. 

Write Before Christmas with Lanie McAuley

Mercy: Any upcoming projects you can share about?
Madison: Nothing I can share at the moment but if people stay up to date with me on IMDb there may be an announcement soon!

Mercy: If your life was a movie what would the title be? 
Madison: The title would be “ Golden Retriever Stuck in a Man’s Body” 

Mercy: What is the most rewarding aspect of being an actor? 
Madison: The fans! Especially on a network like Hallmark. Everyone is just so overjoyed to watch and it’s beyond amazing to be a part of that experience. 

Christmas Question Time!

Mercy: Favorite Christmas tradition/memory? 
Madison: Christmas in general is just my favorite. My family is extremely close, and as my brother and I have started expanding our families the Christmas season just gets better and better with more people coming together to celebrate. 

Mercy: Favorite Christmas movie? 
Madison: It’s a three-way tie between Elf, Christmas Vacation, and The Grinch starring Jim Carrey. 

Mercy: Favorite Christmas song? 
Madison: Anything by my fellow Canadian Michael Bublé. 

Mercy: Must-have Christmas food? 
Madison: Apologies, this is the toughest questions. So I refuse to answer. Because I love all food equally! 

Mercy: White or green Christmas?
Madison: It changes year-to-year. Some of my favourite Christmases are in a winter wonderland and some of them are in somewhere tropical like Hawaii.
