Jen Lilley (Theresa, DAYS) nabbed a guest role on ABC’s GREY’S ANATOMY, playing a character named Kara. “It was incredible to guest star GREY’S ANATOMY!” says Lilley. It’s my parents’ favorite show, so they were beyond thrilled!” Coincidentally, Lilley learned that Co-Executive Producer Andy Reaser, who was the head writer of her episode, hails from her hometown, Roanoke, VA. “I didn’t know Andy before I worked on GREY’S, but his brother-in-law, Todd O’Brien owns O’Brien’s Deli in Salem, VA,” shares Lilley.  “I grew up eating their sandwiches. My family loves the O’Briens. I’ve known them since I was 9-years-old. They even have my head shot up in their deli. It’s crazy! Andy and I had a blast laughing about the fact that we went to rival high schools. It’s rare to meet people from Virginia in this industry, but to be from the same hometown blew my mind!”Lilley’s episode airs next Thursday, October 6.
