She is also set to appear on the small screen in The Arrangement, premiering March 5th
Tammy Gillis is kicking off 2017 with a bang, celebrating her acclaimed role in the indie festival circuit gem, ‘Menorca’, with a recent Best Actress award at the Noida International Film Festival in India. Tammy will be heading to the Cinequest Film Festival in San Jose next, where ‘Menorca’ will be screening from March 1-10. The film has garnered critical acclaim internationally, and is set to continue premieres across the country, with screenings scheduled for Winnipeg (April 20th), Toronto (April 21st) and Vancouver (TBA). Tammy will be attending the screenings, and is available for interviews upon request.
‘Menorca’ is the dramatic feature film directorial debut by John Barnard of Farpoint Film, who also wrote the film. 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.
On the small screen, Tammy can be seen in a recurring role on the E! Network’s new series ‘The Arrangement’, which premieres March 5, 2017. Tammy plays an actress on the show, which follows fellow actress Megan, who is desperate for that really big break. Megan lands the role of a lifetime, quickly winning the affections of her A-list co-star-to-be, the fabulously successful and wealthy Kyle West. However, her world is rocked when she is presented with a life-changing “arrangement”, for which she will be compensated lavishly.
A Hallmark Channel fan favourite, Tammy will be appearing on the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries network for a role in the original movie ‘Murder She Baked: Just Desserts’, premiering March 26, 2017. Tammy plays Michelle Bishop, the coach’s wife, on the series, which follows crime-solving baker Hannah Swensen’s first-ever televised bake-off competition gone horribly wrong.
In theatres, Tammy has the feature film ‘Thirty-Seventeen’ on the horizon. The film follows tech billionaire Adam Vine as he attends his 20th high school reunion. Convinced that he and his classmates have unfinished business that dates back to 1997, he uses his immense cash flow to buy the impossible: a brief return to high school for all of them. Tammy plays Claire in the film, one of the popular girls in high school who wants to relive her youth by getting wild at the reunion party. The film is set for theatrical release in the spring.
The Hallmark Channel has been home to many popular appearances by Tammy, including her most recent release in a co-starring role opposite Danica McKellar in ‘Wedding Bells’. Also 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.
