Very quickly you’ve become a Hallmark “regular” and much-loved star. Of the movies you’ve made so far, which character did you best identify with and why? What do you most like about being part of the Hallmark family?

Thank you! I most related to Nikki Turner in A Dash of Love, because I love to cook and bake, plus I’m clumsy and often use my humor to deflate tense situations. I love the stories Hallmark Channel tells, and the strong and kind characters they create. And let’s be honest, we could all use a little more kindness and positivity in today’s world.

What projects do you have coming up?

I have several movies coming out in the next year. The Duplicate, a psychological thriller in which I play twins; Off the Menu, a rom-com that will premiere at TIFF; Snatched, a thriller in which I play a pregnant hipster with a psychotic doctor; and another fun rom-com called The Wedding Do Over, in which I get to exercise my physical comedy chops as a bride whose wedding is an absolute disaster. I’m also recording a pop album with the legendary Adrian Gurvitz at the moment. (Note: Jen was recently in Lifetime’s Mommy, I Didn’t Do It starring Hallmark’s Danica McKellar).

RH: What inspired you to become an actress?

JL: The shortest answer I can give you is my faith in Jesus. I never planned on becoming an actress. I had thought about it as a kid, but no more or less than any other child. In college, I auditioned for a film on a whim, booked the female lead, and fell in love with the cast and crew. I figured it was just a fun experience, but the Lord began speaking to me about it. I’m not afraid to share my faith, and more importantly than that, I’m not afraid of what the church thinks of me. God alone is my judge. I don’t have to boast about what I’ve done or how pure I am. That’s worthless. What really matters is loving people because Jesus loves people. I have no problem hanging out with people who have completely different, or even opposing ideals than me. Especially if I can help lessen the pain they’ve encountered from a bad experience in church. And please don’t misunderstand. There are SO many WONDERFUL churches out there that are so legitimate, and loving, who are following after God’s own heart. My church is like that. I go to C3, Los Angeles. There are C3’s all over the globe, and they’re the real deal. But that’s what acting came down to for me. Studying people, telling stories that will make people laugh or cathartically deal with loss and loving people with abandon.

Lilley came on board Eat, Play, Love via her friendship with Wolf, who thought of her when she read the script. “She got hired to direct. The character Carly Monroe is nerdy and adorable and because Christie knows me personally, she said, ‘I know the perfect person for this.’ We loving call each other the dynamic duo. We love each other,’” she laughs.

Lilley was thrilled to work with Majors and Wagner. “It was incredible. Talk about two icons. It was pretty amazing. Before we started, I got an e-mail from the Lee Majors introducing himself, telling me he was looking forward to working with me and [he’d] done research on [my] work,” she recalls. “He said, ‘I’m sorry in advance if I mess up, wink wink.’ I almost fell out of my chair. I was like, ‘Are you kidding me? You’re the Six Million Dollar Man. Hopefully I don’t forget my words when I’m gazing into your eyeballs.’ He has a fast sense of humor. He’s has such a good sense of humor. He’s adorable.”

“Lindsay Wagner is every woman’s woman. I think she inspires women just as much today as she did in the 70s. She’s a humanitarian and she’s lovely and she’s a giving performer. She’s so interesting. What I loved about Lindsay is that I appreciate a woman who is very pro-women and strong but also feminine. She’s not trying to be a man. She’s trying to be a strong female. That is a Lindsay Wagner to a T. I love her. She’s a fascinating, brilliant lady.”
