Moving to more adult-oriented fare, James portrayed Poppy, the nice-girl roommate of Billie Piper’s Belle on the final season of the decadent drama series “Secret Diary of a Call Girl” (ITV, 2007-2011). Soon thereafter, she won her first Hollywood role as a supporting character in the critically trashed blockbuster “Wrath of the Titans” (2012). Despite her relatively minor part, James enjoyed her time on the massive star-studded production, which featured English acting giants such as Ralph Fiennes and Bill Nighy. The same year, she appeared in the lead part of highly competitive sprinter Lisa Temple in the British sports drama “Fast Girls” (2012), which proved to be a word-of-mouth hit in the United Kingdom.With a starring film role under her belt, James had garnered enough attention to attract the interest of the producers of “Downton Abbey.

Interesting Facts:

  • Studied acting at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London graduating in 2010.
  • Was on the Musical Theatre Course at The Arts Educational School, Tring Park.
  • Although she played Hayley Atwell’s daughter in Cinderella (2015), she is only seven years her junior in real life (this is somewhat of a moot point, as James had only played her character at an older age, several years after Atwell’s character had died).
  • She has Scottish, English, French, and more distant German, ancestry. Lily’s paternal grandmother was American actress Helen Horton, who lived in England with Lily’s British grandfather, Hamish Thomson. Lily’s maternal grandmother was of French origin.
  • She has been named as the next Keira Knightley.
  • Hayley Atwell, her on-screen mother in the movie Cinderella, shares the same birth date as Lily.
  • She has won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series for her role as Lady Rose MacClare in Downton Abbey.
  • She went to audition for Anastasia, the stepsister of Cinderella but got the lead role in Cinderella.
  • Lily James believes in women empowerment and feels good to see actresses who arehealthy and curvy.
  • She has the same birthday (not the same year of birth) with her on-screen mother in Cinderella, Hayley Atwell.
  • She is a sixth cousin of U.S. President George Bush, through her American grandmother. Lily’s four times great-grandfather, Stephen Horton, was the brother of the president’s four times great-grandmother, Sarah Horton (their parents were Comfort Horton and Joanna Wood). Lily is thus a sixth cousin, once removed, of the President’s sons, President George W. Bush and Governor Jeb Bush.
  • She is a mezzo-soprano.
