ADA, Mich. — December is all about holiday movies, and one West Michigan pre-teen had the chance to star in one of this year’s new Christmas movies!

It's called Miracle on Christmas, a brand-new holiday movie all about a family falling on hard times and cherishing Christmas together.

The movie was actually filmed in the Brighton and Howell area earlier this year, just before the pandemic started.

Ethan Mathias, 11, from Ada had the chance to be one of the leading roles playing the son, Caleb. This was the first movie that Ethan had lines and wasn’t only an extra in the background.

Ethan says he wants to be an actor or an engineer when he grows up, but hopes his next adventure is acting on a TV show!

If you would like to see Ethan on the big screen, you can stream "Miracle on Christmas" for free on Amazon Prime or even buy your own copy on DVD!
