tilly-shades.jpgBorn September 16, 1958 as Jennifer E. Chan in Los Angeles, California to Harry Chan and Patricia Tilly.  After her mother and father divorced, she moved with her mother to British Columbia, Canada and was raised with her three other siblings by her mother and step father John Ward.  Her sister is the actress Meg Tilly.  Jennifer started with appearances on television shows before her big role in the movie, tilly_jennifer2.jpgThe Fabulous Baker Boys in 1989, when she had a part written just for her.  She has appeared in more than eighty movies between 1984 and 2006 such as The Doors in 1991, The Getaway in 1994, Bullets Over Broadway in 1994 when she was nominated for an Academy Award.  She also appeared in Bound in 1996, Liar Liar in 1997, Bride of Chucky in 1989 and you may recognize her from her more recent role in Seed of Chucky in 2004.  You might have also seen her around a poker table or two, which seems to be her new hobby in life but it is much more than just a hobby.  Tilly won a World Series Poker bracelet and $158,625 in 2005 playing in the Ladies No Limit Texas Hold ‘Em tournament, so she is not just eye candy as the phrase goes.  However she is very beautiful and exotic looking.  It seems like she has given acting a break, in order to pursue her poker career and has won over $340,000 in tournament winnings so far.  She is also in a relationship with one of poker’s best professionals “The Unabomber,” Phil Laak.
