Actress Teresa Palmer and her husband had to rethink Christmas on Tuesday (24Dec19), when visa issues wrecked their holiday plans.
The couple was forced to decorate a hotel room in Cardiff, Wales at the last minute after a planned break in Los Angeles was scuppered.
The Hacksaw Ridge star shared an Instagram post documenting her "very stressful" search for a tree and decorations on Christmas Eve, adding: "This is me yesterday, on the way to a supermarket to buy a Christmas tree and decorations to put up in our hotel room.
"Due to unforeseen visa issues our Christmas plans suddenly changed at the airport and we were thrust in to a mad dash of how-to-not-ruin-xmas utter chaos (sic)."
But Teresa, who had been filming A Discovery Of Witches in Wales, was upbeat about the drama, adding: "We are all together and feel very fortunate. It’s humbling and honestly I’m feeling a tad silly that these issues felt SO big at the time."
The actress and her husband, Mark Webber, share three kids and she is stepmother to his 11-year-old son.
Teresa admitted her own drama made her think of those less fortunate in her native Australia: "To anyone facing Christmas in my country Australia without a home after the fires, I am so sorry," she said, referencing the bush fires that have ravaged the country.
