Jen nabbed a guest role on ABC’s GREY’S ANATOMY, playing a character named Kara. “It was incredible to guest star GREY’S ANATOMY!” says Lilley. It’s my parents’ favorite show, so they were beyond thrilled!” Coincidentally, Lilley learned that Co-Executive Producer Andy Reaser, who was the head writer of her episode, hails from her hometown, Roanoke, VA. “I didn’t know Andy before I worked on GREY’S, but his brother-in-law, Todd O’Brien owns O’Brien’s Deli in Salem, VA,” shares Lilley.  “I grew up eating their sandwiches. My family loves the O’Briens. I’ve known them since I was 9-years-old. They even have my head shot up in their deli. It’s crazy! Andy and I had a blast laughing about the fact that we went to rival high schools. It’s rare to meet people from Virginia in this industry, but to be from the same hometown blew my mind!” Lilley’s episode airs  October 6. (Source)

Mommy I Didn't Do It,News August 6th,2016 Comments Off on New Project: Mommy, I Didn’t Do It

“It is with bittersweet sentiment that I find myself making this statement 6 months too soon. First, I would like to say your comments, support, and well wishes regarding my recent departure from the iconic daytime drama, Days of Our Lives, have melted my heart. Second, I have never enjoyed playing a character so much. I absolutely love Theresa, and the idea of not playing her pains me. I once found a quote that perfectly describes her, “She’s a mess of gorgeous chaos, you can see it in her eyes.” Exploring Theresa, from her insecurities to her strengths, from her tendency to deflect emotional anguish with comedy to her firecracker spirit has been pure joy.

I hate to dissatisfy our love for black and white explanations, but there’s no one to point your finger at here. Days of Our Lives and I are parting company on the best of terms. It came down to time and the sacrifices required to keep Theresa on the front burner. Given the demanding production schedule a soap requires, that just wasn’t possible with the other commitments and opportunities I wanted to pursue. As we all know in the world of soaps, good bye for now isn’t always good bye forever, who knows what the future has in store for Theresa.

I am taking time right now to be with my family, advance the charitable causes I believe in, and pursue additional career opportunities. While I’ve missed so many moments in my family’s lives back east, I have built a west coast family at Days of Our Lives, and they haven’t seen the last of me! I’ll be stopping by the set from time to time with baked goods and bear hugs.

Lastly, cheer up! There are 6 more wonderful months of Theresa to enjoy. And I can honestly say that each month, the storyline gets better! My exit will have you on the edge of your seat, laughing, crying, cheering, screaming, clapping, and bewildered.

And to the Theresa’s out there: I love you, I love you, I love you. You are not alone. You are beautiful and worthy of love and happiness and joy and success! May my storyline over the next six months inspire you.” – Jen Lilley

Jen Lilley has plenty to be thankful for this holiday season.

Lilley, who lives in the beach cities and is expected to appear as part of the Manhattan Beach Holiday Fireworks show Sunday, Dec. 13, recently released her first Christmas CD, “Tinsel Time,” on the Manhattan Beach-based label Robo Records. Her Lifetime film, “The Spirit of Christmas,” airs Dec. 19 on the cable channel, and she is celebrating nearly three years on “Days of Our Lives” as the iconic soap reaches a milestone 50 years.

“I think that passion is better than coffee so it was something I was really driven to do,” said Lilley about making time to record “Tinsel Time” in her busy schedule. “Somehow you just carve out time to do what you want.”

“Tinsel Time” features seven songs, including two originals, “Santa We’re All Waiting on You” and the title track, which was co-written by Manhattan Beach resident Rob Christie, founder of Robo Records. Other songs include classics “Santa Baby,” which Lilley plays ukelele on, “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” “Jingle Bells,” “I’ve Got my Love to Keep Me Warm” and an acappella version of “Silent Night” with “The First Noel.”

“It was an inspired impromptu thing that really worked,” said Lilley of “Silent Night.”

On “Days of Our Lives,” Lilley plays the conniving Theresa Donovan. Her love interest on the soap is Brady Black, played by Eric Martsolf. The co-stars went to recording studio last year to record “Baby It’s Cold Outside.”

“I thought I would start with that one because it’s a duet and Eric was on Broadway for years. He has an incredible voice,” Lilley said. “I (thought) let me record a single and see if anybody likes it or see if it’s this grand illusion I have that I can do this. We had a lot of success with it, but I remember driving to the studio knowing that Greg Field and Chuck Berghofer were going to be there and I was weeping joyful tears the entire way there.”

In between the hectic shooting schedule of “Days” and recording her CD, Lilley found time to film “The Spirit of Christmas,” which she teases with her video for “Tinsel Time.” “The Spirit of Christmas” was shot in January and February during a freezing Boston winter, with snow drifts reaching 13 feet or more. She calls the film “less of a ghost story, more of a fairy tale.”

“We probably got $1 million of production value out of all the snow,” Lilley said. “I remember days there were wind advisories and you weren’t’ supposed to go out. My character was always running outside without her jacket in a huff … I lost 5 pounds in the three weeks just from shivering.”

Overall, Lilley said recording the Christmas album was a “dream I didn’t expect to happen so early in life.”

“There’s a lot of kinetic energy going on, it has been ‘Days of Our Lives,’ the CD and the movie. It has been a very exciting time in my life … I’ve had a lot of sleepless nights, but I can’t stop smiling.”
