Tea and a Movie

Happy Belated Palm Sunday!

I’ve been lazy, no new tea flavors lately. Just rushing around and making the stand-by black blends (Earl Grey, Scottish breakfast, Irish breakfast, Tazo Awake).

“I’ll make some tea,” said Hermione breathlessly, pulling kettle and mugs from the depths of her bag and heading toward the kitchen.

More AG Movie Information

Last week I stumbled upon American Girl movie notes and updated you on Shailene Woodley from her time as Felicity to the present.

This week I thought I’d look up Samantha. What great information I found there.

Samantha: An American Girl Holiday

The 2004 TV movie is based on the collected stories of Samantha Parkington and set in 1904. The story chronicles Samantha’s relationship with Nellie, an orphan who may be split from her siblings.
 Cast in the role of Samantha, AnnaSophia Robb. Does the name sound familiar? She’s had many starring roles since then. Perhaps you have seen her as:
  • Opal in Because of Winn-Dixie
  • Violet in Charlie & the Chocolate Factory
  • Leslie in The Bridge to Terabithia
  • Sara in Race to Witch Mountain
  • Bethany in Soul Surfer
  • Carrie Bradshaw in The Carrie Diaries (TV).

The now 20-year-old actress has been busy in the nine years since she filmed Samantha. Her characters now allow for her to keep her own blonde hair. She wore a wig as the American Girl.

Have you seen any of her movies? If yes, I’d like to hear what you think of them.
