A graduate of Elon University, Ginna Claire Mason starred as Glinda in the Broadway production of Wicked. The Nashville native said her love affair with musical theater started when she was a child.
“I saw my first Broadway show in the fourth grade,” she said in an interview with Broadway.com. “I sat in row K at the Imperial Theatre for Les Misérables. I looked at my mom and intermission was like, ‘People do this for a living? This is their occupation? This thing I do for fun after school is is their actual job?’”
A few years later, Mason saw Wicked with the original cast.
“I told my parents at intermission that I wanted to play Glinda someday, and here we are,” she said.
In 2022, Mason starred in the Countdown to Christmas movie A Holiday Spectacular.
Frédéric Brossier was born in Frankfurt, Germany. From 2012 to 2016 he studied acting at the Hochschule für Musik, Theater und Medien Hannover. He has appeared on two TV series in Germany, Mordsschwestern — Verbrechen ist Familiensache and Der Schiffsarzt. A Heidelberg Holiday is his first movie for Hallmark Channel.
A Heidelberg Holiday will premiere on the Hallmark Channel on Sunday, November 12 at 8/7c.
