Don’t get me wrong; though her brows may be her most striking feature, there’s more to this young actress than meets the eye.
Born in Surrey, England in March 1989, Lily Collins moved to Los Angeles, California after her parents’ divorce at age 5. Her father is the famous English musician, Phil Collins, yet she does not use her father’s fame to garner attention. She started acting at the age of 2 on a BBC show called Growing Pains. As a teenager, however, she went for other pursuits: journalism. She has written for magazines like Elle Girl, Seventeen, Teen Vogue, and even the Los Angeles Times. She also pursued modeling, she became a red carpet correspondent, and she even appeared in two episodes of the hit drama 90210. However, she was not really known then until she started acting for the big screen.
Her first movie was alongside Sandra Bullock in the Oscar-nominated film The Blind Side, where she played Bullock’s daughter. She also appeared in several other movies including thriller movie Priest, opposite Taylor Lautner in the action-packed Abduction, and most notably as Snow White in Mirror, Mirror, a 2012 adaptation of the classic fairytale.
She also starred opposite Logan Lerman in Stuck in Love, but she’s most famous for playing Clary Fray in the film adaptation of the young-adult best-seller The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, which will have a sequel that is due for release later this year or early next year.
Aside from her blooming acting career, she also has impeccable fashion taste, both on and off the red carpet.
What makes Lily Collins really special though, is not her acting or her style, but her simple, humble attitude. Unlike a lot of young actors who are related to other famous people, she keeps a low profile, and she has not been involved in any scandalous situations. She’s really down-to-earth too; despite having starred in several popular movies, she doesn’t consider herself a celebrity, and she even gets surprised whenever she’s invited to showbiz events.
Lily Collins is an amazing young lady, and the perfect role model to many young girls out there. Truly, she deserves to be called royalty.
