We can’t stop loving the honeys on the small screen and the luminous Lily Holleman has a pleasantness that’s thoroughly charming. She’s slated to guest-star on the 2nd Episode of the new season of “NCIS: New Orleans on 29th Sep 2015 and will be an absorbing watch I’m sure. Whenever there’s an actress who can play shades of the human condition, we are always intrigued and Lily Holleman has a deft touch when it comes to varying personas. From being a meth head/unwed mom in “Southland” to one of her best performances as a troubled teen in indie film “@urFRENZ”, Lily has often made a fascinating mark.
Here’s Lily giving us a juicy tease of her role on “NCIS: New Orleans” and some of her upcoming projects:
I play Emily Jansen, the wife of a Navy Seal on NCIS: NEW ORLEANS. It is episode 202 entitled Shadow Unit. It airs tomorrow evening on CBS! I am currently rehearsing to play the lead role of Bess Johnson in Beth Henley’s play ABUNDANCE at South Coast Repertory Theatre in Costa Mesa, CA. We open on October 23 and run 8 performances a week through November 15. It is one of the best plays I have ever read for two women leads. It is set in the old west beginning in the late 1860s and spans 25 years. Here is the site: http://www.scr.org/calendar/view?id=7455
Also, I produced and act in an indie feature dark comedy called THE LADY KILLERS. It has just been completed and beginning the festival circuit. That website is www.theladykillersmovie.com
I have also been serving as Chairman of the Board of a 90 year old historic LA club called The Los Angeles Breakfast Club and am getting ready to premiere a podcast about women in media called “Am I Right, Ladies?”
Lily also appeared in one of my favourite shows, the darkly funny “Shameless” as Lisa a yuppie entrepreneur who happens to be a lesbian and somehow manages to get under the skin of Frank (William H. Macy)! With her forte being her deftness of threading the dark and comic flavours of a story, Lily has the desirable flexibility to be thought-provoking. Lily could soon be the enthralling talent we’ve been longing for!
