Mary Holland is one of those faces you know but can't quite place. She's been acting in short films and TV shows and lending her voice to animated series for a decade now, but 2020 is by far her busiest year. Including Happiest Season, Holland has 16 projects this year. You might recognize her voice from Netflix's Hoops, Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge, or the Harley Quinn animated series. She's appeared in Comedy Central's Robbie, 2016's Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, and even season two of Amazon Prime Video's dramatic series Homecoming. That's range, folks.
Leads in comedies are often trapped by the expectation that they need to be relatable to audiences, so it's the supporting characters who get to have fun. Holland has the freedom to be as wacky as she wants, and I freakin' love it. A whole movie about Jane would be too much, but sprinkling Jane into scenes here and there is exactly the spice a good holiday movie needs.
