JoAnna Garcia Swisher is a multifaceted talent who is best known for bringing layered characters to life in projects including Reba, Privileged, Fist Fight, and Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, and the co-founder of The Happy Place. This winter, she stars opposite Brittany Snow, Justin Long, and Alex Moffat in Christmas with the Campbells.
Christmas with the Campbells is directed by Clare Niederpruem and co-written by Barbara Kymlicka, Vince Vaughn, and Dan Lagana. When Jesse (Snow) gets dumped right before the holidays by her boyfriend Shawn (Moffat), his parents convince her to still spend Christmas with them, and Shawn’s handsome cousin, while Shawn is away. JoAnna shines as Becky, a career-driven entrepreneur who knows exactly what she wants.
Pop Culturalist was lucky enough to speak with JoAnna about Christmas with the Campbells, reuniting with Clare and Vince, and how she honors her parents and grandmother during the holidays.
