Lily James Headshot

Actress

Birth Date: April 5, 1989

Age: 34 years old

Birth Place: Esher, Surrey, England, UK

A British actress who ascended remarkably quickly in her screen career, Lily James solidified her "one to watch" status with her memorable role on the hugely successful period drama "Downton Abbey" (ITV, 2010-16). After studying drama in London and appearing in various stage productions, James swiftly landed a regular part on the English sitcom "Just William" (BBC One, 2010). With her alluring model-like features, James eased into a recurring role on the sleek dramedy "Secret Diary of a Call Girl" (ITV, 2007-2011), and made her leap to Hollywood with a bit part in the big-budget fantasy/adventure sequel "Wrath of the Titans" (2012). Continuing her fast rise in the film and TV ranks, she became a featured guest star on "Downton Abbey" just as the show was hitting new heights in its popularity. James subsequently made headlines when she was cast as the title character in Disney's live-action remake of the classic "Cinderella" tale. Further work in romantic drama "Burnt" (2015), undead period piece "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" (2016) and action comedy "Baby Driver" (2017) showcased her impressive range.
