Boughs of Holly Characters

Boughs of Holly long

When I was trying to picture the characters for Boughs of Holly, I knew the rancher needed to be a little reserved, a little skeptical of love. And the nurse, Holly, well, she needed to be vibrant and free-spirited.

Seth 1

I thought Mike Vogel made an amazing Seth Stafford. Just that look right there so made me think of how he would react to meeting Holly.

Seth 5

And this one! I could just picture her dumping her coffee all over his coat.

Mike Vogel

Really, just so perfect for Seth’s character (and handsome, too!).

For Holly, I knew the moment I happened across this dazzling redhead, she was the best fit for the character.

Jo-Newman-1

Jo Newman has the ideal blend of sweetness and sass – and all that red hair!

Holly 3

It was so easy to envision the laughter and smiles she’d bring to the Stafford ranch with her warm personality.

Holly 4

And she’s just beautiful! No wonder Seth couldn’t help but fall for her!

Robert De Niro

Robert De Niro  is how I imagine Sam, Seth’s grandfather. He can be a tough nut to crack, but beneath that prickly exterior is a heart of pudding. He loves his grandson and just wants what’s best for him.

And we have to include Ivy! This is the photo that inspired her character! Just love me some fuzzy red and white bovines!

The song I listened to while I wrote this is from Chris Young  – It Must Be Christmas. Such a great holiday song!
