If you only know Lily Collins from her starring role in Emily in Paris, here we bring you a list with more projects in which the actress has participated (in addition to those already mentioned above). She stands out mostly for romantic comedies, but she has done dramas, action and even thrillers.
Shadowhunters: City of Bones (Shadowhunters: City of Bones)
Shadowhunters: City of Bone is the film adaptation of the book of the same name written by Cassandra Clare. This saga was a teenage success and, although the film did not convince the public to continue it with more deliveries, thanks to it many of us met Lily. It is not the best adaptation in the world, but aesthetically and musically it is a beautiful film. Its main song is heart by heart, sung by nothing more and nothing less than Demi Lovato. Lily plays Clary, the protagonist. The co-star is Jamie Campbell Bower, who has recently been making waves again thanks to her role as Vecna in stranger things.
This film is a plea for animal rights that competed for the Palme d’Or at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. It was the first Netflix original film to compete at this festival. Lily plays Red, part of a group of animal rights activists from the Animal Liberation Front. She will fight to save Okja, a pet superpig that a multinational wants to turn into meat.
To the Bones
down to the bones is probably the hardest movie Lily has ever starred in. It tells the story of Ellen, a young woman with anorexia nervosa who meets an unconventional doctor at a support group who challenges her to face her condition and come back to life. The actress herself went through this harsh disease in her teens. This is another Netflix original movie.
Here we find the only thriller on the list. The Heritage is a dramatic thriller with some hints of horror in which Lily plays the daughter of a patriarch who passes away suddenly, leaving her and her mother with a mysterious inheritance that could destroy their lives. This time we see the actress in a much more serious and adult role, demonstrating one more facet of her potential as an actress. The film will leave you in suspense wanting to know more every moment until the final outcome.
The Unforeseen of Love (Love, Rosie)
One of the most beautiful romantic comedies out there, but perhaps not one of the best known. Along with Sam Claflin (Before you, The Hunger Games), Lily stars in this film about a love that overcomes all obstacles. Love, Rosie It shows various life stages of two best friends, Rosie and Alex, in which they do not stop meeting despite a series of events that had distanced them.
Snow White (Mirror, Mirror)
Snow White (Mirror, Mirror) is a curious and extravagant musical adaptation of the Disney classic (or the Grimm brothers, depending on what you prefer to see). In it we have Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen and Lily as Snow White herself. It is a very funny movie that stands out for its extravagant looks and dresses that leave no one indifferent. A twist on a classic that is well worth seeing.
A Winter at the Beach (Stuck In Love)
Once again, Lily teams up with another teen idol, Logan Lerman. This actor has starred in other film successes such as the adaptation of the literary saga of Percy Jackson either The advantages of being an outcast. Lily plays Samantha, a budding young writer who can’t get over her mother cheating on her father (who doesn’t get over it either). Natt Wolff plays Lily’s brother and A winter at the beach narrates the love and social lives of the three members of this family. At first, Samantha is cold and cynical until she meets Louis (Logan), who with her romantic nature and also as a writer tries to win her over. Here we find another romantic comedy with hints of drama that has a great cast completed by Greg Kinnear and Jennifer Connelly.
The mythical work of French history by Victor Hugo has had countless adaptations. The best known of all is the 2012 film directed by Tom Hooper, but there is also an adaptation in the form of a miniseries in which Lily Collins appears as Fantine.
