Tammy Gillis continues busy year with world premiere of feature film ‘Menorca’ at the Whistler Film Festival
Tammy Gillis is gearing up for a busy end to 2016, with a number of notable film and television appearances on the horizon. First up is Tammy’s lead role in the the feature film ‘Menorca’, which she traveled to Spain and Winnipeg to film. ‘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. The film has been chosen an entrant in the Borsos Film Competition for Best Canadian Feature and will be screening at the Whistler Film Festival, on Saturday, December 3 at 5:30 p.m., and Sunday, December 4 at 3:30 p.m. in the Village 8 Cinemas in Whistler, before having a wider theatrical release across Canada.
On the small screen, Tammy has two exciting upcoming appearances, starting with a guest starring role on ABC’s hit series ‘Once Upon a Time’. Audiences will have to tune in on November 27th to see which famous fable character Tammy brings to life. After that, Tammy can be seen in a recurring role on the E! Network’s new series ‘The Arrangement’. 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.
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 December of this year.
Tammy is a Hallmark Channel fan favourite, with many popular appearances in the channel’s movies, 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.
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 displays the diversity and talent of her acting. http://www.cnn.com/2015/05/23/opinions/lemmon-band-of-sisters-special-ops/
