Lilly also has two sisters. Lilly also served briefly as a foreign missionary and lived in a grass hut in the Philippines. She studied acting at The Yaletown Actors Lab with writer, director David Palffy and was first discovered by agent Jeff Palffy, formerly of Ford Models, now with PMG Management in Vancouver. With production literally days away and no news about the visa, casting directors were to grudgingly begin re-casting the role of Kate. She has also said that she would not appear in a nude scene or perform in sexual scenes that she would consider “gratuitous”.
