For the 35-year-old actress, Angel Falls 2 marked her first project after taking a brief, eight-week maternity leave after giving birth to her daughter, Julie, who came with her to set. As Lilley explained it, she was "stoked to get back in the saddle" and "fortunate" to be working on a production that was accommodating and understanding to a mother's needs. "There was no unsaid tension that I was bringing a baby [to set] and they were being genuine about it."
