  • ๐Ÿ™ˆHave you ever dated someone who was so insensitive/caring that it actually drove you insane?? ๐Ÿ˜†That's George in The Truth About ChristmasโœจWhat's most amazing is that he's such a #gentleman about how intractable he is ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธhe's the most loved by all the characters. Even when he's not around, everyone is thinking/talking about him. What added an interesting layer is actor @DamonDayoub is such a caring person in real life. ๐Ÿ˜ฏHe was always walking around being helpful ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธHe would remember things that I needed, BEFORE I even needed to need them. Where George was oblivious, Damon was quite attentive ๐Ÿ•ต๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธwhich made me look at his #relationship to my character a little differently than I had at first. ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐ŸฝThe #film is pretty much about my character's descent into [holiday induced] madness, but as she becomes more and more unhinged, Jillian + George always remain SUPER respectful to eachother even as they both grow frustrated by wtf is going on #lol ๐Ÿ’๐ŸฝIt's kind of miraculous, actually. A lot of weird stuff happens in the movie, yet they are never at odds. ๐Ÿค”It's as though once George decided to #love Jillian that was just the end of it. Poor Jillian is so used to being in perfect step with George ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธit's unsettling to find herself going off the rails maybe for that reason alone. ๐Ÿ˜ŽIt'll be interesting to see what happens with these two... #TheTruthAboutChristmas #Disney @Freeform @25days
