A former McCreary girl has taken her dream of acting and made it a reality.

 

Tammy Gillis has been acting for about 15 years.

Gillis talks about a recent award she has won.

“I won the UBCP Actra Award for Best Actress for my performance in Menorca,” explained Gillis.  “That was a really incredible night, very overwhelming and amazing because the award is voted on by my peers; so it was a really special award to win.”

She was first spotted by a Winnipeg modeling agency, Panache, while attending university.
