GH Actress in Golden Globe Nominated "The Artist"

Maxie replacement, Jen Lilley was in "The Artist" the silent film that's gathering awards by the dozens. I think it's her eyes that got her the part!!

 Jen Lilley at The Artist premiere at Grauman's Chinese Theater in Los Angeles, CA.

She's interviewed on the "Star Scoop" excerpt:

JEN LILLEY:
It’s interesting because it’s a silent film. I have an affection for the time period and I have always loved it, but even to go into the premiere, I remember thinking, I love this movie, I love the script, I love silent film, but oh my gosh, it’s going to be 90 minutes of silence. I don’t know how this is really going to go over with the audience. And everyone’s response has just been amazing.
I think everywhere in the world, to some degree, people are hurting financially, and things aren’t as comfortable as they used to be. It deals with a man’s transition between what everybody is feeling…going from being super successful to having to downsize, to going bankrupt, and just seeing his struggle and seeing him work through it.
There are no special effects. The audience is really connecting with the characters. It will make you laugh and it will make you cry and then it will make you laugh and cry again. Overall, it’s super uplifting, and I think it’s what people need right now, very cathartic. Everyone can relate to the characters.

Enjoyed reading her thoughts on the movie.

It's ironic that the role she plays on GH requires her to talk a mile a minute!

i love that it's a silent movie. This girl is good as Maxie, but her voice drives me up a wall.

Her voice has really grown on me, honestly. I wish they could keep her somehow when KS comes back.

This actress is good. We will be seeing lots of her in her future endeavors.
We just want our KS back. Nothing personal!

I honestly think she is as good as Kirsten. That isn't a slam for K, but I often forget it isn't Kirsten. She has taken the role, added those big eyes and does it all wonderfully well.

I look forward to The Artist coming to my town...
