If all of this wasn’t enough, Lily has two huge roles in her future. She has already begun work on a live-action adaptation of Snow White, where she will play the beloved princess. In an in-Studio interview with Young Hollywood, Lily revealed that her version of the Snow White character will have some edge — she is already preparing for fight scenes! She went on to say that the adaptation will put a twist on the original version. Julia Roberts will star opposite Lily as the Evil Queen.
After Snow White, Lily will be go from princess to Shadowhunter in the film adaptation of the hugely successful The Mortal Instruments novels. The first film, City of Bones, will introduce Lily as main character Clarissa Fray.
A writer, model, and actress, Lily Collins can do it all. She has already achieved incredible success, but it is only the beginning for this young star. Lily Collins is talented, down-to-earth, and has the best eyebrows Hollywood has seen in years!
