Since making their respective exits from daytime, Jen Lilley (ex-Theresa, DAYS OF OUR LIVES; ex-Maxie, GENERAL HOSPITAL) and Ryan Paevey (ex-Nathan, GH) have become staples in the Hallmark Channel’s rotation of made-for-TV movies. In fact, the duo starred together in the 2015 film Harvest Love for the cable network — and according to Lilley, they are about to film another movie together later this month!
If you follow Lilley on Instagram, you know that the GH and DAYS alumna has been quarantining in Vancouver, as she’s about to begin work on her next Hallmark movie. Last week, she revealed in an Instagram story that her next project will be a film titled Love In The Afternoon. The actress also shared a photo of the cover page of her script, which showed that the movie was written by sisters Sandra and Judith Berg — who also penned Harvest Love!
Paevey has also been quarantining in a Vancouver hotel room, but neither daytime alum mentioned that they’d be collaborating again. That is, until self-proclaimed workaholic Lilley went live on Instagram yesterday to answer fan questions while she made her lunch! “I am going to be doing another movie for Hallmark with Ryan Paevey,” she confirmed as for her reason for being in Canada.
With a title like Love In The Afternoon, the movie must have a connection to daytime dramas, right? Yep! According to a synopsis for the film, “soap opera dreams come true as a writer not only gets the job of her dreams but the perfect partner, too.” Lilley is slated to star as the writer, Natalie, but it’s not clear if Paevey’s Chase is one of the performers on the soap, or if he too works behind the scenes.
If we had to venture a guess, we’d say that the handsome GH alum will play a soap hunk in the upcoming film as well… so stay tuned for more information about Love In The Afternoon and to see if our prediction was right!
