Who is Lily James? This is the question that millions of people have asked themselves for a few months after some images of the last date that this celebration had in London were surprised on social networks.

Lily James Films
She debuted in ‘Wrath of the Titans’ (in 2012, as Korrina), the same year we saw her in ‘Fast Girls’ (giving life to Lisa Temple). But, her first big stellar appearance was in Disney’s most recent version of ‘Cinderella’ in 2015, where Lily was transformed into a true princess!
Then she worked on the film ‘Burnt’ (in the character of Sara), and in 2016 she did not go unnoticed in ‘Pride, prejudice and zombies’ (as Elizabeth Bennet). In 2017 she acted in ‘The Kaiser’s Last Kiss’ (in the role of Mieke de Jong) and later in ‘The Darkest Moment’ (playing Elizabeth Layton) but, let’s face it, our favorite Lili James performance in 2017 was that of Deborah in ‘Baby Driver.
Another of our favorite movies about this girl? ‘Mamma Mia: Here we go again! (in 2018, as the youth version of Donna Sheridan, the character played by Meryl Streep), ‘The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (that same year, where she became Juliet Ashton) and ‘Yesterday’ (a film that pays tribute to the Beatles and where she excels in the role of Ellie).

Lily James’ famous boyfriends, ex-boyfriends, and dates
She is the ex-girlfriend of the star of ‘Doctor Who’s Matt Smith (with whom she broke up in December 2019), but since the beginning of June 2020, she began to be romantically involved with the protagonist of ‘Captain America.’
And why is the alleged romance between Lily James and Dominic West so controversial?
In addition to the fact that Lily is 20 years younger than Dominic, the actor of English origin is currently married to the aristocrat Catherine FitzGerald (and a few days ago they posed together kissing to confirm that they are still together and to silence the rumors of a separation, due to the romantic’s images in which James appeared with the interpreter on the streets of Rome).
One theory that refutes Dominic’s infidelity is that he is filming with Lily a miniseries called ‘The Pursuit of Love’ and that their recent ‘displays of affection could have been part of the script for the professional project they share.
However, it is also rumored that they will maintain a father-daughter relationship in said production, which raises suspicions about a possible romance between them because there should not be romantic scenes between a father and his daughter.
