On May 3, Netflix announced that season 2 of the hit Netflix original Emily in Paris has officially begun production:

The show was an instant hit, watched by 58M households in the first 4 weeks after its October 2020 launch.

With season 2 on the way, we decided to take a closer look at actress Lily Collins.

Did you know that her dad is Phil Collins?

If not, you’re not the only one.

Yup, you heard that right. Lily Collins is the youngest daughter of her world-famous musician dad, well-loved for hits like “In The Air Tonight” and the entire Tarzan soundtrack.

In fact, Lily Collins had a minor voice role in Tarzan, and “You’ll Be In My Heart” was based on a lullaby he wrote for her when she was a baby!
