‘Irish Wish’ Cast and Character Guide | Photos

To combat the ominous atmosphere of the Ides of March, Netflix has another Lindsay Lohan film, “Irish Wish,” which is now streaming. The follow-up to “Falling for Christmas” in Lohan’s deal with the streamer to make two films, “Irish Wish” focuses on love, luck and a little bit of magic in the rom-com that arrives right before Saint Patrick’s Day.

Lohan portrays a smart book editor, except when it comes to matters of her heart. It takes a wish granted by a mystical woman out in the beautiful Irish countryside to get Maddie to realize that what she hopes and dreams for might not be what she wants or should want in life.

Featuring music from Lohan’s younger sister, Aliana, and a guest appearance from her brother, Dokota, the cast is stacked with other familiar faces as well. We’ve rounded up the “Irish Wish” cast and characters below:

Maddie Kelly (Lindsay Lohan)

Maddie edits all of best-selling author Paul Kennedy’s (Alexander Vlahos) books, except for his most recent one, which she basically wrote herself. After working with Paul for many years, Maddie can’t get past her feelings for the Irish-born writer, so she makes a wish to marry him, and it comes true, sort of.

Lindsay Lohan is known for films like “The Parent Trap” (1998) in which she plays twins Annie and Hallie, “Mean Girls” (2004) in which she plays Cady Heron, “Freaky Friday” (2003) in which she plays Anna Coleman and more recently, “Falling for Christmas” (2022) in which she plays Sierra Belmont.
