Welcome to the renaissance of Lindsay Lohan.

After taking a break from acting, Lohan is returning to screens in the holiday film "Falling for Christmas," which will be available for streaming Nov. 10 on Netflix.

"It's a great movie," the "Mean Girls" actress, 36, told "Good Morning America" on Tuesday. "I wanted to make this movie because I missed being on set and I really miss bringing characters to life, and this was just the perfect script full of love and family and romance and joy all in one."

Lohan continued, "And it has a great message, which is that you don't really need all of the material things in life. It's good to just focus on the simple things, and I really love that."

The logline of the film reads, "A newly engaged, spoiled hotel heiress (Lohan) gets into a skiing accident, suffers from total amnesia and finds herself in the care of a handsome, blue-collar lodge owner ('Glee' alum Chord Overstreet) and his precocious daughter in the days leading up to Christmas."

Lohan said she "wanted to get to the point where I was craving being on set," and doing so for "Falling for Christmas" felt "really refreshingly exciting."

In addition to taking on new acting projects, Lohan has taken on a new role in her personal life: wife.

The "Parent Trap" actress announced her engagement to Bader Shammas in November 2021 and referred to him as "husband" in a heartfelt Instagram post from July.

As for how she's enjoying married life, Lohan gushed, "It's amazing. I'm really lucky. I found my partner and he's an amazing man and we're a great team."

"He's the best," she continued. "I love him so much."
