Nikki DeLoach on faith-based Christmas movie The Gift of Peace – The Hollywood Reporter


Nikki DeLoach played a key role in the successful Children’s Hospital Los Angeles gala Saturday night by securing the featured person of the night, Justin Timberlake, a global pop superstar who happens to be been her friend for 30 years.

“I just called him and asked and he said yes,” DeLoach explained to The Hollywood Reporter on the red carpet of her straight line to Timberlake, whom she met at a casting camp for Mickey Mouse Club. “We immediately became best friends, like brother and sister, and we have been brothers and sisters ever since. His mother is like a second mother to me, I have lived with her many times in my life. We’re just a chosen family, and I’m honored that he was there whenever I needed him, and I was there when he needed me. ”

She also took a moment to discuss another role she has taken on recently, starring in Hallmark’s. The gift of peace. The series, part of the network’s annual Christmas show, stars DeLoach as a once devout Christian who stops believing in God after her husband tragically passed away. As the second Christmas without him approaches, she tries to reach a support group for inspiration and comfort.

“This is the first faith-based film that Hallmark has ever made,” DeLoach said. “And I am a person of deep faith so it was great to be a part of that. The actress has forged a long career that includes many TV series (some of which are in the holiday genre) including christmas land, christmas dream, christmas reunion, love take flight, two doves, sweet autumn, christmas cranberries and Perfect catchamong others.

She added The gift of peace“It’s about grief and it’s one of the most emotional films Hallmark has ever made so we’re about to break the mold with this one.”

The project and its subject of grief have come close to DeLoach.

“There’s just been so much loss over the last few years and we’ve all wondered, myself included, how to get over that monster of grief. It was really hard,” she explained. “I lost my dad last July at the age of 66, and what I learned is that it really helps when you can connect with others and share your pain with others. We think we have to go through everything in isolation and that’s not the way we have to be with humans. This film is a blueprint for how to find joy and light in the midst of grief.”

The gift of peace premieres on the Hallmark channel on December 10.
