As a result of her new contract with GAC, Jen Lilley will spend the next two years starring in four films. Also known for appearing on “General Hospital” and “Days Of Our Lives,” Lilley appeared in the Hallmark Channel’s TV film, “Where Your Heart Belongs.” In addition, Jen starred in a film that won an Academy Award, “The Artist.”

But the four-film pact doesn’t mark Lilley’s first exposure to GAC. The actress previously took a lead role in the GAC Family holiday movie, “Royally Wrapped for Christmas.” That film marked the network’s first Great American Christmas roll-out.

“Aside from being an immensely talented and hardworking actor, Jen is a generous and kindhearted person who is a perfect fit for GAC,” stated Bill Abbott, President, and CEO of GAC Media. “Many of us on the GAC team have known Jen for years, and we are excited to welcome her to the family as we work together to bring even more entertaining movies to our fans.”

The previous CEO of Crown Media Family Networks, which serves as the Hallmark Channel’s parent company, Abbott has focused on enticing Hallmark Channel stars with whom he worked during his time at Crown Media. For instance, Hallmark Channel alums Danica McKellar and Trevor Donovan both inked contracts with GAC Family for multiple movies. And two former stars of “When Calls the Heart,” Lori Loughlin and Daniel Lissing, recently reunited for the return of the reboot, “When Hope Calls” on GAC Family.
