Acting on stage and on camera
LILLIS LIKES PERFORMING, WHICH IS EASY TO SEE WHEN HE IS ON HIS SKATEBOARD. THE LOVE FOR PERFORMING AND TELLING A STORY IS ALSO SEEN ON STAGE AND IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA. BEING AN ASPIRING ACTOR WITH A FEW PROJECTS IN THE BAG LILLS IS HOPING FOR MORE.
Lillis has an intense interest in acting and was part of a local theater group, Skokloster Teatersällskap, where them trained under the guidance of swedish actor and director Willy Tappert. Lillis has had the lead roles as male characters Lars Hård in the play “Lars Hård” by Jan Fridegård and as Mascarille in “The Pretentious Young Ladies” by Molière and Jean in August Strindbergs “Fröken Julie”.
The debut in front of the cameras was for the pilot of “1251 – Folkungarnas tid”, where Lillis is portraying the 1300th century Swedish king Knut den Långe.
Summer 2011 Lillis had one on the lead in the independent short movie Svartmunkarnas Krönika – Codex Dei, working with famous Swedish actors Per Ragnar and Kim Anderzon. Unfortunately the film got stuck inte editing room due to financial problems. Lillis is still waiting for the break …
Being a fan of Star Trek, Lillis is happy to have landed the role as the android Commander Andrew in the Norwegian fan based Star Trek/Star Wars crossover movie Gatekeeper. Filming is scheduled somewhere in the future (hopefully not in a galaxy far away).
