Days of our Lives' and Miss Behave's Jillian Clare in new indie film

Jillian Clare Actress Jillian Clare (ex Abby, Days of our Lives, Tori, Miss Behave) is at it again. When she read the character description for the role of Nikki in THE KITCHEN just over a year ago, she knew she wanted the part. But would the director really think she could portray a friendly and flirtatious ditz who has an inner logic that somehow makes sense? She had her doubts, so she took a gamble.

"I loved the script, so I decided to do something I had never done," Clare admits. "I walked into the room as Nikki and never showed them the real Jillian until I had booked the role and showed up for wardrobe."  Clare continues...

"She is so out there I knew they would really want an actress that embodied that spirit – someone that literally was already Nikki. So, I gave it to them, or at least pretended like I did."

Clare joined other members of the ensemble cast at the world premiere on Tuesday night as the comedy, set entirely in a kitchen in the Silver Lake section of Los Angeles (known for its artsy residents and its music scene) closed out the exciting Gen Art Film Festival in New York City.

The film is about Jennifer (Laura Prepon) who is turning 30 and her best friend Stan (Matt Bush) who's throwing her a party. But she's in no mood to celebrate as she has just left her job as well as her cheating boyfriend, Paul (Bryan Greenberg). And her sardonic sister Penny (Dreama Walker) has shown up with a life-changing decision to make. A cast of colorful characters stop by – including Nikki (Jillian Clare) who is left at the party to fend for herself by her on-screen boyfriend Tony (Adam Chambers).

The Kitchen, directed by Ishai Setton (3 Days of Normal), is written by Jim Beggarly (Free Samples) and produced by Emily Ting (Family Inc.). After an overwhelming successful world premiere, expect the film to hit theaters in the near future.
