Tammy 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
On 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/
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. 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
