An icon in the horror film community, she was born in Los Angeles on September 16, 1958 to a car salesman and a schoolteacher. After her parents’ divorce, she and her siblings were raised in British Columbia, Canada. Inspired by her mother’s theater and stage performances, Jennifer went on to pursue acting herself during her high school days.
She attended Belmont High School along with her two sisters, Meg and Rebecca, following their mother’s second divorce. Wanting to further train herself in acting, she studied theater and received her Bachelor’s degree from Stephen’s College in Missouri.
Immediately diving into acting after earning her degree, Tilly launched her career with a recurring guest role in Hill Street Blues in 1983 and a film debut the following year in No Small Affair. A decade and more than two dozen acting roles later, she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the black comedy-crime film Bullets over Broadway.
Her most notable role, Tiffany Valentine, was first introduced in the fourth installment of the Child’s Play franchise, Bride of Chucky. It made her popularity skyrocket and earned her several nominations from different award-giving bodies.
Additionally, she lends her voice for different animated television series, such as Family Guy and Hey Arnold!, and films like Monsters, Inc. and Stuart Little. She is also still actively involved in theater, starring in shows both on and off Broadway.
Aside from being a Hollywood actress, Tilly is also a professional poker player. She developed an interest in card games in her childhood, influenced by her father, who was an avid poker player himself. The video game World Series of Poker given by her father armed her with knowledge and urged her to play the real game.
Over the years, Tilly managed to master the rules of poker and make a name for herself in the world of Texas Hold’em, the most popular variation of the card game. Here, players get two hole cards and must make the best of them alongside three of the five community cards — and that she did, moving on to win first prize in the World Series of Poker’s Ladies’ No-Limit Texas Hold ’em event in 2005.
This made her the first celebrity to ever win a WSOP event, causing many to question her poker-playing abilities. Tilly went on to prove them wrong by winning the third World Poker Tour Ladies Invitational Tournament just three months after her first win.
Later on, she appeared in several celebrity poker events on television, like GSN’s Poker Royale Series and the 2006 Bravo Celebrity Poker Showdown. She also maintained her ranks in different tournaments around the world. As of June 2017, her live tournament winnings were nearly $1 million.
