Celebrity Travel: Go away with Lily Anne Harrison
Lily Anne Harrison grew up in the public eye. The daughter of actor Gregory Harrison (“Trapper John, M.D.”) and model Randi Oakes and recently engaged to longtime boyfriend Peter Facinelli (“Twilight”), the actress and writer takes Hollywood in stride. Her latest film is “The Vanished,” which was spearheaded by Facinelli. Set in an RV park, the film follows the case of a missing child. Harrison resides in Los Angeles. Fans may follow her on Instagram (@lilyanneharrison) and Twitter (@lilyaharrison).
Q: What was it liking filming “The Vanished” in Alabama?
A: It was so much fun. Peter wrote and directed it and my father was also in the film, so it was really, quite literally, working with family, which was a dream. But my favorite memory of the shoot was probably the day I shot in the RV. It was super cold and the first (assistant director) was roasting us marshmallows from somewhere off camera and handing them to me and to my pretend daughter, Skyler Elyse Philpot, in between takes through the window of the RV. We munched on them with glee.
Q: Are you a fan of RV camping?
A: I am. I love camping. I’m from Oregon, so I love anything that takes me outside. I grew up appreciating the outdoors. Also, I just love the adventure of an RV trip.
Q: People often think celebrities take extravagant vacations all the time. Can you describe some of your trips?
A: Peter and I love to go to Mexico whenever we can; it’s our little getaway. We usually stay in beautiful resorts right on the beach, turn off our phones, and just be together. It’s pretty fabulous. But, in light of 2020 and COVID, we haven’t been able to, obviously. So we’ve been doing a lot of daydreaming about when we’ll be able to again. As for a down-to-earth vacation, my parents and I drive up to Oregon every year to where we’re from in this tiny town on the coast called Gold Beach. (We) stay in a cabin in the middle of nowhere, right next to the Rogue River. My sisters meet us there and we just lay around in the sun, reading books, playing with my niece and watching movies. It’s heaven.
Q: What was the first trip you took as a child?
A: My father worked a lot in New York early in my life, so I fell in love with that city right away.
