The film will join Netflix’s growing library of original holiday content that includes titles such as The Christmas Chronicles, A Christmas Prince, The Princess Switch, and Dash & Lily among others. Lohan became a household name back in 1998 when she starred as twins Halle Parker and Annie James in The Parent Trap alongside Dennis Quaid and the late Natasha Richardson.
She went on to feature in popular titles including Freaky Friday with Jamie Lee Curtis and 2004’s Mean Girls with Tina Fey, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, and Lacey Chabert. In recent years, Lohan has pulled back from acting a bit, working on her brand and other ventures.
In 2019 Lohan featured in MTV’s docuseries Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club, which followed her efforts to launch the Lohan Beach House in Mykonos, Greece. Among some of her notable TV credits are the 2018 British comedy Sick Note with Rupert Grint and Nick Frost, Ugly Betty, Glee, and the movie Liz & Dick in which she portrayed Hollywood icon Liz Taylor.
It’s unclear when the holiday film will arrive but stay tuned for updates as they’re made available.
