How old is Lily James?
Lily James was born on 5 April 1989, making her 32-years-old. Her real name is Lily Chloe Ninette Thomson.
She studied acting at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London and began her acting career in the British television series Just William.
The actress then went on to star as Lady Rose Aldridge in Downton Abbey before bagging the lead role in Cinderella in 2015.
Mamma Mia! fans will also recognise Lily for playing a young Donna Sheridan in the second film, while her other credits include Baby Driver, Rebecca and Rare Beasts.
Does Lily James have a boyfriend?
Yes, Lily James has been with her boyfriend Michael Shuman, 35, for a few months.
The couple were recently spotted looking loved up in Los Angeles and Lily reportedly met his parents.
Michael Jay Shuman - also known as Mikey Shoes - is an American musician and songwriter who is best known for playing bass with rock band Queens of the Stone Age.
Before she went public with Michael, Lily was spotted looking cosy in Rome with her Pursuit of Love co-star Dominic West, 50.
But in October, Dominic and his wife Catherine Fitzgerald issued a joint statement saying that their marriage ‘was strong’.
Lily previously dated Doctor Who and The Crown actor Matt Smith for five years, from 2014.
What is Lily James’ net worth?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Lily James is reportedly worth $8million (£5.7million).
Opening up about her latest role, Lily has praised Linda's ‘passion’, telling Digital Spy: "She's unafraid, really.
"She has all this passion and fire and energy but no structure to put it into because she wasn't educated.
“And women, the restraints on their choices were so great, and yet she still carves out this life following her own heart and making great sacrifices and great personal loss.
"There's a courage to be who she is. That feels radical, even now."
