Tammy directs original comedy web series THE SUPPORT GROUP premiers January 6th
2015 has been the busiest year for actor/director Tammy Gillis. She stars in two Hallmark movies soon to be released. The first is the Canadian premier of SIGNED, SEALED DELIVERED: IMPOSSIBLE DREAM airing on E! Network on December 13th. She spent this past summer in Spain and Winnipeg filming the lead role in the feature film MENORCA. The web series The Support Group is Tammy’s directorial debut, which she also produced and acted in.
Tammy Gillis plays a profound character in Signed Sealed Delivered: Impossible Dream which is based on the real story of the Band of Sisters. The Band of Sisters are part of an ultrasecret Joint Special Operations Command – which sent female soldiers in the field to go out on combat missions alongside the Rangers. They are female warriors on the frontlines. 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.
Farpoint Films’ Menorca is a feature film directed and written by John Barnard. It was filmed in Winnipeg and Spain in the summer of 2015. 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.
