Tammy Gillis co-stars in Hallmark Channel’s Wedding Bells, premiering Friday, June 3 at 9 p.m. ET with Danica McKellar, Kavan Smith and Bruce Boxleitner

Tammy Gillis - Jeff Reyes Photography 2Tammy is nominated for a Leo Award for her role in UPTV’s Ties That Bind

Tammy Gillis is becoming a fast favorite on the Hallmark Channel with her upcoming co-starring role on Wedding Bells, premiering Friday, June 3 at 9 p.m. ET. Tammy is starring along side Danica McKellar (The Wonder Years), Kavan Smith (When Calls the Heart) and Bruce Boxleitner (Cedar Cove). Molly Quinn (Dancia McKellar) is a young New York fashion designer who would rather be single than risk being hurt by love. As she struggles to create a new fashion line, Molly’s socialite best friend, Amy (Tammy Gillis), and her fiancé, James (Christopher Russell), invite her to dinner. At a trendy restaurant, Molly meets handsome chef Nick Turner (Kavan Smith), a confirmed bachelor, who also believes that love only leads to heartache. Through a series of emotional wedding-related events, the two are forced to work together -and inevitably- the opposites attract, despite themselves.

Tammy is also nominated for a Leo Award for Best Guest Performance in UP TV’s TIES THAT BIND for her guest-starring role alongside Jason Priestley. Tammy plays a former junkie and massage therapist, Carla, who is now happily married to a conservative guy she met on Christian Harmony; she’s got the house with the picket fence and has carefully crossed her sketchy side off of her resume. www.LeoAwards.com

unnamedOn the horizon for Tammy, set-to-be-released later this year is a project she’s very proud of: a lead role in the feature film MENORCA that she traveled to Spain and Winnipeg to film. Menorca is a feature film directed and written by John Barnard of Farpoint Films. Tammy plays a hedonistic soccer mom who indulges in her fantasy world, breaking away entirely from her family and life of motherhood. As she embarks on a journey through bad decision-making, she comes to a conclusion to the singularity of her life purpose. She needs to win back her son’s affection.

Tammy is widely recognized for her multitude of film and television appearances. In a challenging role Tammy played a profound character in Signed Sealed Delivered: Impossible Dream. Her character is based on the real story of the Band of Sisters, an ultra-secret Joint Special Operations Command – which sent female soldiers in the field to go out on combat missions alongside the Rangers. Tammy’s role depicts a female U.S. soldier in the special ops unit who is held captive in Afghanistan. In this movie, Tammy embodies the strength and courage of her character that is needed for survival, while also being able to portray the compassion found in human nature even under such difficult circumstances. This role displays the diversity and talent of Tammy’s acting. http://www.cnn.com/2015/05/23/opinions/lemmon-band-of-sisters-special-ops/

13320845_10157492841780131_1370881032421606936_oAlso on the Hallmark Channel, Tammy had a lead role in one of the network’s most highly rated movies, Unleashing Mr. Darcy. In this modern day spin on “Pride & Prejudice”, Tammy starred along with Cindy Busby, Ryan Paevey and Frances Fischer. Tammy plays the lead role of Jenna Scott, an older and endearing sister to the female heroine, played by Cindy Busby. Tammy’s character unexpectedly finds herself meeting love at first sight.

Tammy’s directorial debut came earlier this year for the web series THE SUPPORT GROUP, which she also produced and acted in. The original comedy web series follows three unlikely friends, each facing their own challenges and coming together to save their beloved support group. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUDm2tEohHSBaZYZHvtKlfg

13323205_10157492844195131_5803697634001694555_oThis exceptionally talented actress has over 50 credits to her name and has made TV guest appearances on Motive (CTV/ABC), Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce (Bravo), Supernatural (CW), Lost Girl (Showcase), Blue Mountain State (Spike TV), Endgame (Showcase), and many more.  She has recurred on the critically acclaimed award winning HBO Canada series Less Than Kind, jPod (CBC) and Signed Sealed Delivered (Hallmark).  Additional work in which Tammy has appeared includes the feature films White Noise 2, Shooter, No Men Beyond This Point, and The Pinocchio Project, as well as leading roles in A Novel Romance (Hallmark), and Stolen from the Womb (Lifetime).

Divvying up her time between Vancouver, the east coast of Canada and Los Angeles, Tammy is a rising star who brings years of entertainment industry experience to the table. A well-respected member of the community, she served as a jury member for the Canadian Screen Awards this past year.  Tammy also volunteered as a mentor in the 2015 and current 2016 WIFTV actor mentorship program.

_DSC0282 edit 4Tammy’s directorial debut on the original comedy web series THE SUPPORT GROUP

Next up for Tammy Gillis is a lead role in Hallmark Channel’s UNLEASHING MR. DARCY that will air on Saturday, January 23rd at 9 :00 pm. In this modern day spin on “Pride & Prejudice,” Elizabeth Scott (Cindy Busby), is fishing for direction in her life and gets the opportunity to professionally show her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel in a fancy New York dog show. Dog show judge Donovan Darcy (Ryan Paevey) comes across as aristocratic and rude and a chain of misunderstandings unfold during the competition, complicating their mutual attraction. In true Jane Austen fashion, Elizabeth and Donovan begin to see the error of their ways and it turns out Mr. Darcy is far more kind and interesting than Elizabeth ever imagined. Tammy plays the lead role of Jenna Scott, an older and endearing sister to the female heroine, played by Cindy Busby. Both the sisters face the pressures from their mother to fall in love and get married. This movie is based on a book and is a play off of Pride and Prejudice. Tammy’s character unexpectedly finds herself meeting love at first sight.

The Promotion People Tammy Gillis

Acclaimed Canadian actress Tammy Gillis has been busy working on television and film projects across Canada in Toronto, Vancouver and Winnipeg with a number of exciting appearances on both the big and small screen. First up this spring, Tammy is thrilled to guest star on the next episode, entitled Detour, of the new hit CTV series “MOTIVE” starring Kristin Lehman, Louis Ferreira, Brendan Penny, Roger Cross and Lauren Holly. “MOTIVE” will be airing on ABC this summer.

On the next episode of “MOTIVE”, entitled Detour (Thursday, March 14 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV), Detectives Flynn (Kristin Lehman) and Vega (Louis Ferreira) investigate the death of a mortgage broker who was found strangled in his office parking lot. Their initial examination of evidence leads them to a disgruntled ex-wife as well as a petty thief, but neither lead pans out. A composite police sketch and a stubborn refusal to follow orders leads Flynn to a man whose desire to make amends with his family, coupled with a lapse in sobriety, has led to tragic results. Guest stars include Aidan Devine (A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE), Tammy Gillis (LESS THAN KIND), and Gemini Award-winner David Julian Hirsh (WEEDS).

An encore presentation of Thursday night’s episode will air Sunday, March 17 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CTV, and on Monday, March 18 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV Two, with both episodes in simulcast on CTV Mobile. MOTIVE is also currently available on demand across CTV’s digital platforms: CTV.ca, the CTV App, and through video on demand partners.

Tammy will be returning in her hilarious recurring role for the fourth and last season in the critically acclaimed and multiple Canadian Screen Award winning television series “LESS THAN KIND”, the original comedy series from Astral’s The Movie Network (Eastern Canada) and Corus Entertainment’s Movie Central (Western Canada) airing on DirectTV and The Movie Network. The role has Tammy starring as Barbara, the new mother and trophy wife of Jack, Clara’s ex-husband. Barbara is young, pretty and full of life, maybe a little too full of life, with her Jekyll and Hyde personality.

One of the roles that Tammy is most proud of is her leading role in the independent feature film “UNDER THE APPLE BOX”. It recently screened at the New Jersey Film Festival Spring 2013 and won an Honorable Mention. It will be screening at the Women’s International Film Festival in Miami in March 2013.

“Under the Apple Box” written, produced and directed by Ellie Fox, is a compelling and beautifully-filmed feature about an Iranian woman played by Tammy, who is forever tormented by her past. “Under the Apple Box” opens in l983, when Leila, still a child, agrees to take forbidden photos of other Iranian women. She learns, from an early age, that her own body must be covered up at all times, but is also the object of continual and obsessive observation. When her stepbrother attempts to rape her, the crime devastates her life and she is forced to flee to Canada. Leila becomes a successful photographer and writer but her life in Iran continues to haunt her.

Last year, Tammy co-starred in a steamy episode of Showcase’s original and extremely popular series “LOST GIRL”. Tammy’s other television roles include appearances on the CW’s “SUPERNATURAL” and the SpikeTV comedy “BLUE MOUNTAIN STATE”. She has been seen on GlobalTV series “ENDGAME” and “SHATTERED”. Tammy also appeared playing Rachael Leigh Cook’s best friend, in the thriller ‘STEALING PARADISE’, which aired on The Movie Network, Movie Central and Super Écran.

This talented actress has amassed a number of impressive credits throughout her career, including roles in feature films such as “SHOOTER”, and “WHITE NOISE 2: THE LIGHT”. Her television appearances include the critically acclaimed CBC series “jPOD”, “REAPER”, “THE L WORD”, and the final season of “BATTLESTAR GALACTICA”.
