She’s Hollywood’s fastest rising young star, having played Taylor Lautner’s love interest in the action-drama Abduction, Snow White in Mirror, Mirror and now a half human, half angel warrior in the new fantasy flick The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.

- Born in England, Lily (24) has lived in Los Angeles since she was six. “I’m much more European than people here [in LA],” she says. “I do feel my roots and I miss England a lot. I even miss the accent.”

- Her dad, British rocker Phil Collins, walked out on her and her mom, American Jill Tavelman, when she was six. But she’s not bitter about it. “He’s the best. He’s so funny and supportive.” He dedicated his song You’ll Be in My Heart to her.

- Her favourite weapon in Mortal Instruments is the whip. “I’m a big fan – that snake whip was awesome!”

- Her thick eyebrows are her trademark. “They used to bother me. I even plucked them once so I’d fit in. Now I embrace them. I realised the quirky things that make you different are what make you beautiful.”

- Acting isn’t her only talent – she’s written for Elle Girl, Seventeen, Teen Vogue and the Los Angeles Times magazines! “What I really love is journalism.”
