The mother-of-two added she had worked alongside Australian actors John Polson and Xavier Samuel as well, and was reunited with producer Bruna Papandrea in her latest series, Tell Me Your Secrets.

'I have so many Australian connections through work... I recently worked with Damon Herriman, too, and they all seem to know each other. I'm doing my best to keep collecting and working with as many Australians as I can,' Lily told the publication.

The daughter of playwright David Rabe and late actor Jill Clayburgh, who now lives in Los Angeles, also detailed having a 'feeling of community and no hierarchy' when working with Australians in the industry.

'I'm very attracted to [those values] and it makes me feel comfortable. So yes, it does line up with my experience… because I've never worked with an Australian and not loved it,' Lily added.
