Happy 21st Birthday, Jillian Clare!

Jillian Clare's 1st birthday party
With all the talk of the Royal Baby this week, and the flashbacks to old Princess Diana clips, it really drove home the point that "time flies." And I'm not just talking about soap opera characters aging rapidly. After posting our daily "Today in Soap Opera History" column I commonly tweet phrases like "25 years ago today" or "30 years ago today" and so many readers respond having the same memories and also realizing how many years have gone by and just how much time we've dedicated to watching our stories.

On Thursday's birthday list is the young, accomplished Jillian Clare, who turns 21 years old today. It seems Jillian has packed a whole career into those 21 years. In 2003-2004 she played Abigail Deveraux in DAYS OF OUR LIVES. From 2010-2013 she produced and starred in the Indie Soap Award-winning web series MISS BEHAVE. She recently guest-starred in ABC'c SUBURGATORY and hit Canadian series CLUTCH.

It's her movie career that's about to shoot her into superstardom though with roles in The Kitchen, Freak the Freak Out, and the upcoming By God's Grace.

Join us in wishing Jillian a Happy 21st Birthday today (how old does this make me?). You can tell her yourself on Twitter (@jillianclare). And check out a brand new photo below -- she's a red head now!
