She also shared, "You are so replaceable on a soap opera that it is so stressful. The only time I’ve been that stressed out in life was when I was facing my son’s custody battle with his adoption. Because I knew he was going to die if he went back to his birth father. And then we adopted him thank God. But he fully would be dead. Those were the only times I’ve been so stressed out. and ’s adoption."
And, Lilley additionally sadi, "It’s literally so stressful. I was 96 pounds when I was on . I couldn’t even eat. Like you are so stressed out that there isn’t an amount of food that you could eat."
