Two-time Screen Actors Guild Award winner Chandra Wilson may struggle to find the balance between work and family life on her hit drama 'Grey's Anatomy.' In real life
The 39-year-old Houston native, who has appeared in films like 'Philadelphia,' 'Head of State' and 'Accidental Friendship,' will star next opposite Halle Berry in 'Frankie and Alice' and was the voice of the late Coretta Scott King in the just-wrapped 'A Single Woman.'
Wilson took time to share with you, the BV Buzz readers, exactly what she likes to do with her family during the holidays.
"My favorite things that I do during the holidays usually include family and eggnog.
I love eggnog that is seasoned with a good amount of nutmeg and cinnamon. Warmed eggnog with a pinch of whipped cream makes the taste even better.
Then we sit together with our eggnog treat watching a family movie like 'The Preachers Wife,' 'Eight Crazy Nights' or 'The Polar Express.'
I really believe for it to truly feel like the holiday season, you have to be somewhere that gets cold outside.
Flannel pajamas and comfy socks are a must. I did not grow up in a house with a fireplace, but I always envisioned that one would make the sentiment just perfect.
I grew up in Texas where everybody speaks with a loud voice inside the house. So, there was always a lot of noise at our family gatherings.
Even though that is what I became used to, I still appreciate the stillness of sitting in front of a lit up Christmas tree, in a dark living room, in my pj's and comfy socks, drinking my mug of eggnog, of course, all by myself, listening to the 'Snowflakes' album by Toni Braxton." – Chandra Wilson, actress
