About “A Winning Team”
- Kristoffer Polaha plays Ian. Everyone knows who Polaha is. He was in last year’s “We Wish You a Married Christmas” and had a cameo in “Haul Out the Holly.” He will star in the highly anticipated “A Biltmore Christmas” later this year. According to his IMDB, he has a ton of upcoming work including “Harlen Coben’s Shelter.”
- Nadia Hatta plays 3-time World Cup soccer champion Emily. According to IMDB she is best known for her role in a series called “Away” on Netflix. This is her first Hallmark movie. She was also a VJ at MTV Asia.
- You may have recognized Adil Zaidi as Ian’s friend. At the time of recording, he hadn’t been given credit on IMDB. He typically plays a lot of “friend-of” roles in Hallmark movies. I wouldn’t mind seeing him as a lead.
- This was written by Ronee Uyeshiro. This is her first writing credit.
- Jason Furukawa directed. He has 13 directing credits including last year’s “A Magical Christmas Village.”
- Filmed in Vancouver during winter – which made this spring movie hard to film, especially the outdoor soccer scenes.
