Biography

While Lily Collins was born into a life of privilege and glamour, it was through sheer talent and passion that she was able to lead the enchanted life of a movie star. The daughter of musician Phil Collins, the British actress first gained attention as a columnist for popular teen magazines like Seventeen and Teen Vogue, and as host of several Nickelodeon-sponsored political campaigns. After a guest starring stint on the primetime drama "90210" (Fox, 2008- ), Collins landed a featured part opposite Academy Award-winning actress Sandra Bullock in "The Blind Side" (2009), followed by a lead part in the action-thriller "Abduction" (2011). But it was her breakthrough role as Snow White in the modern retelling of the classic fairytale "Mirror Mirror" (2012) that launched Collins' career and paved the way for a bright future in Hollywood for the talented actress.
