Recently, The Yesterday actress, Lily James, has hit the headlines as the secret partner of the Captain America star, Chris Evans, as speculations have surfaced in every front to counter their romance. But before we tune in to their affair, here’s all that we need to follow up about the actress-
Lily’s grandmother happened to be an American actress Helen Horton, whose famous voice was lent to the character of Mother in the movie Alien(1979). On the other hand, her father James Thomson was an actor, a musician, as well as an entrepreneur. While speaking to Harper’s Bazaar UK for the March 2019 issue, she acknowledged the emotional contribution of her family in shaping her personality development and told, “I grew up in a house where tempers rose quickly… I think the extremes live quite happily in me.”
What’s her real name?
Her real name is Lily Chloe Ninette Thomson, who adopted the stage name from her father James Thomson.
Where does she live?
In an interview with The Times in January last year, she disclosed the address of her residence saying, “I live in north London, where there are some of the best pubs, and I like to go out and dance every so often.” Then, she used to share a rented flat with her former-boyfriend Matt Smith.
The secret behind her career
Lily spoke to AnOther magazine earlier in 2020 about her portrayals in “English rose,” chronicled-movie parts saying, “It’s funny because I wasn’t always the English rose. I didn’t play those roles at drama school, or in my first theatre job. Over time, I’ve sort of morphed into a version of myself that I’ve been cast as. I think largely it’s because of England, because I’m based here. There’s a lot of period drama and England does it really well—it’s our history.” And that defines her success in every stroke. Apart from that, she also expressed her wish of moving away from good-girl characters.
Her social face
As she came to address her decision of participating in social justice movements, she told Allure, “For me, I think a lot of the people who follow me might be young girls. That’s pretty important. If I feel like I could be some sort of useful voice to them, then that’s my responsibility and it’s worth taking on.”
Breaking the barriers
In last year’s interview with Telegraph, James revealed her personal stance in playing certain roles within the big screen admitting, “I can operate quite well in a certain level of who I am, but there is a part of me that I find harder to communicate”.
The artificial look
Once she disclosed her original hair colour to Harper’s Bazaar UK saying, “I’m naturally a brunette, and I love it, but everyone else wants me to go blonde.”
Suspension of choices
James pursued a romantic relationship with the Morbius actor for over five years.
However, it was in January 2019, that she expressed some sort of dilemma to marry Smith in The Times interview and told, “I’ve gone through different phases of wanting and not wanting to get married.”
Her friend circle
James was captured hanging out with Dominic Cooper, Gemma Chan, and Billie Piper at the end of the last month. Now, to brief about her pals, Douglas Booth, Richard Madden, and Jenna Coleman exercise an amicable bond with the Cinderella actress.
What about her zodiac sign?
