Lily Collins Bio

Apr 16, 2012

Starlet Lily Collins enchanted audiences playing Snow White in the fairy tale box office hit movie Mirror Mirror, but the 23-year-old rock star’s daughter has done everything from journalism to modeling on her way to the top. Find out more in her Kidzworld Bio!

Famous Family

Lily Jane Collins was born in Surrey, England to English rock/pop icon Phil Collins and his then wife Jill Tavelman and has two older half siblings and two younger half siblings. She started acting when she was just two years old appearing in a BBC show called Growing Pains, but when she was five her parents split up and she moved to Los Angeles with her mother.

NY Confidential

As a kid Lily performed at the Youth Academy for Dramatic Arts, but knew she was interested in journalism. As a teenager she set her mind to writing and wrote a column for Elle Girl (a British magazine) called “NY Confidential”. She also started writing pieces for The L.A. Times, [kwlink 26494]Seventeen[/kwlink] and Teen Vogue.

Although she was mainly interested in journalism, Lily had a natural talent in front of the camera – both film and photos – and her natural beauty didn’t go unnoticed, so she parlayed her talent into modeling. Spain’s Glamour magazine picked her as International Model of the Year in 2008 and she was chosen by Chanel to wear one of their signature gowns at the 2007 “Bal des Débutantes” in Paris which aired on an episode of The Hills. Loving both journalism and lighting up whenever there was a camera around, Lily decided to enroll at the University of California’s Broadcast  Journalismprogram.

The Fairest of Them All

Lily burst onto the silver screen this past year, appearing first in the thriller Abduction opposite her then boyfriend Taylor Lautner and then catching everyone off guard with the charming fairy tale comedy Mirror Mirror as Snow White. Funnily enough Lily was originally cast in Snow White and the Hunstman, but the role went to Twilight starlet Kristen Stewart after she backed out. Mirror Mirror isn’t the end of magic for Lily however – it’s been announced that she’ll star in the movie adaptation of City of Bones, the first book in the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare that follows the story of a teen girl who is catapulted into the world of fairies, demons, vampires when she stumbles across a group of demon hunters only to find she has more in common with them than she ever knew. Lily has signed on to play the lead, Clarissa Fray.

I thought it'd be cool for all the anime fans if there was a forum where we could find friends who like the anime we do :) Personally I really need some more friends who like what I do. Maybe you'll find someone who shares your love for something really obscure! Including manga too. To start off here are some favorites of mine: (just because one isn't here doesn't mean I might not like it too so everyone please share yours!) Black Butler D. Gray-Man No.6 Yu-Gi-Oh Seraph of the End Puella Magi Madoka Magica Horimiya Kekkai Sensen Free! Kyoukai no Kanata Tamako Market (especially its movie!!) My Little Monster Mekakucity Actors (and that whole music project that it's based on) Toradora! haven't finished reading/watching but like: (if you like it I'll make it a priority :)) Akagami no Shirayuki-hime Pandora Hearts Kyou Kara Maou Kuroko no Basket Noragami Kiznaiver  Bungou Stray Dogs The World Is Still Beautiful Ajin Haikyuu!! Aldnoah.Zero Princess Tutu That's all I could think of for now! What are yours? Note: No bashing other people's faves! Have debates/flame wars elsewhere. (Especially about Sword Art Online. Let's not even touch that)

Which channel do you think as of today is the best channel for kids today on cable. I would probably go with Disney XD. It's just as good as it was back in 2009 in my opinion and it has a great selection of shows. What do you think is the definitive channel for kids in 2016?
