She may have been gone from our Salem and Days of Our Lives (DOOL) screens since last fall, but she’s certainly not forgotten.
Fans still want Jen Lilley back as Theresa, knowing Brady will once again have a broken heart after Nicole leaves.
And today, the actress turns 29, and quite an accomplished 29 she is.
Lilley was born on August 4, 1988 in Roanoke, VA and began her soap career in 2011 as Maxie Jones on General Hospital (GH), while Kirsten Storms recovered from an injury.
She landed the role of Jeanne “Theresa” Donovan in 2013 and brought the character from hated schemer to beloved and devoted mother.
Lilley is a devoted mother in her own right, taking in foster children with husband, Jason Wayne.
Since leaving DAYS, she’s starred in a variety of made-for-TV movies, the latest one she is shooting with Ryan Paevey, who just happens to play Nathan on GH, Maxie’s new husband. She even shared a celebration with him on the set, as you can see below.
Soap Hub wishes Lilley the happiest of birthdays and hopes to see her back on soaps one day.
