Lindsay Lohan is feeling right at home ahead of the holidays!

The actress, who will star in Netflix's upcoming film Falling for Christmas, said that getting back on a movie set felt very familiar. Lohan has not starred in a leading role on film since 2013's The Canyons; she had a supporting role in 2019's Among the Shadows.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter published Monday, Lohan, 36, said returning to acting "is like riding a bicycle."

She added, "It's just in me. It's a part of me. Doing films, playing a character, it brings me so much joy to be able to share a story with people. To take people on that journey with me is such a blessing."

Netflix shared new photos from the upcoming holiday film in honor of Monday's date, Oct. 3, which many have dubbed Mean Girls Day. (In Mean Girls, Lohan's character, Cady Heron, is asked by her crush, "What day is it?" She replies, "It's October 3." The day has since been celebrated by Mean Girls fans every year on social media.)

In Falling for Christmas, Lohan stars as a newly engaged hotel heiress suffering from amnesia following a skiing accident. As Christmas approaches, she finds herself in the care of a handsome lodge owner (Chord Overstreet) and his daughter.

Earlier this year, Lohan starred in a Super Bowl ad for Planet Fitness, "What's Gotten Into Lindsay," which playfully poked fun at her past.

The ad featured moments of Lohan embracing wellness — mentally and physically — while referencing her past relationship with the paparazzi, partying and even an electronic ankle bracelet which she wore while under house arrest in 2011 for jewelry theft.

"It was refreshing to put my past to bed once and for all and share with people how I am living my life today," she told PEOPLE at the time.
