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.
Just launched is Tammy’s directorial debut 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. Produced by Beyond Theatre Productions, the production team was featured in the Vancouver Sun as up-and coming filmmakers. The series airs on Beyond Theatre Productions YouTube channel.
Last summer took Tammy to Spain and Winnipeg to film the lead role in the feature film MENORCA. 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 also widely recognized for her multitude of film and television appearances. Most recently Tammy Gillis 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/
