Jessica Lowndes is starring in and executive producing the musically inspired romantic comedy “Over the Moon,” which is beginning production in Vancouver, Variety has learned exclusively.
Lowndes wrote the script and the original songs and score along with music producer Evan White. She portrays a matchmaker who agrees to set up her best friend, played by Wes Brown, in hopes of furthering her career. As she comes closer to her goal, however, she realizes he has been her perfect match all along. Christie Will Wolf is directing.
Adrianna Tate-Duncan, her famed character on 90210, was a hardcore drug addict, and it’s a testament to her acting ability that someone as fresh-faced and untroubled as Jessica Lowndes could make her so believable. The talented Canadian actress and singer, who originally appeared as a guest on the show but was made a permanent member of the cast by popular demand, hails from Vancouver, British Columbia. A born entertainer who started performing at a young age, Lowndes has appeared in numerous TV shows and movies, including the 2014 action flick The Prince with Bruce Willis and John Cusack.
Lowndes, a naturally gorgeous brunette with 750,000 Instagram followers (@jessicalowndes), has also written several hit songs, and is now putting her fame to good use, launching a charitable clothing initiative that she discusses here in detail for the first time. And it’s only a matter of time before Lowndes lands a really big role worthy of her talents and truly becomes a household name, but we think she’ll always be the down to earth girl from Canada who almost seems too innocent for Hollywood.
How did you get to be comfortable in front of a camera and on stage at such a young age? Where does your confidence come from?
My dad always says “whatever you can conceive and you truly believe you will achieve”. My parents have never held me back from anything and I’m extremely grateful to have such an awesome support system. I was a very expressive, outgoing kid. Singing to strangers in Speedos (yes, there’s an embarrassing home video) and always living in my own dream world of make believe— from building forts and talking to myself to flipping my imaginary fins like Ariel from The Little Mermaid, making up my own songs and dressing my Barbies up to go to the Oscars… I always had to be doing something creative and my Dad was always there with his video camera to document every second of it.
Jessica announced via her Instagram that her new single and video will be out on Friday!

Grant Gustin is going from Fox’s Glee to a Lifetime movie. The actor, who plays bad boy Sebastian on the Fox musical dramedy, has been tapped to star in the Lifetime telefilm A Mother’s Nightmare, opposite Annabeth Gish and Jessica Lowndes, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Shelley Gillen penned the pic, which revolves around Chris Stewart (Gustin), a handsome and athletic 16-year-old depressed over his parents’ breakup and cheerleader girlfriend’s defection. When a new girl, Vanessa (90210’s Lowndes) arrives, she works her seductive wiles on Chris, accusing him of assault when he tries to pull back from their relationship. Gish will play his mother.
Larry Gershman and Meyer Shwarzstein executive produce. The film is set to begin production next week in West Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada. An air date has not yet been determined.
For Gustin, the role marks his latest small-screen credit for the actor, who could potentially end up series regular on the fourth season of Glee.

While in London, Jessica showed Grazia Daily her make-up bag.
Bioré Daily Cleansing wipes: I have been using these since I was 12 and they are easy to carry when I’m travelling.
Links of London Mirror: I love this little mirror, one of my London based friends gave to me. It always makes me feel nostalgic for fun times in the city, I love London and come here as much as I can when I’m not filming 90210.
Dior Nude Foundation: This Dior foundation is great as it gives me a natural glow and feels light on my skin, I like the fact it doesn’t cover up my freckles.
MeMeMe Cosmetics Nail Gloss: As I’m in London so much I always visit your drug stores to top up my beauty essentials. I found this product in Superdrug and haven’t stopped wearing it since.
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact: I use this when I want to achieve a subtle glow. I love its versatility, I use it on my face as bronzer and on my eyes as an eye shadow and highlighter.
MeMeMe Boho Balms: I heard about the new balms from one of my London friends and I knew I had to go and pick one up. I love that the pot is split in two with a shade for lips and a shade for cheeks, plus the floral tin is so pretty.
Diorshow Waterproof Mascara: I have a lot of crying scenes in 90210 and so I use this mascara when I’m on set!
I have been using mineral make up quite a bit recently, I love that its light but its coverage is still good. I found BM Beauty online and love their eye shadows, the colours are very rich.
Bobbi Brown Cosmic Raspberry Lipstick: This lipstick is perfect shade for day and night!
Daines & Hathaway Make Up Bag: I have a really big make up bag for travelling but when I’m on the go I use this to keep my handbag essentials in.
BM Beauty Brushes: These are so soft and perfect for blending my eye shadows or applying my bronzers and blushers
