Lily James, the British actress best known for her role in “Downton Abbey,” was radiant on the red carpet last night (Mar. 1), drawing comparisons to her fairy tale character at the Hollywood premiere of her new movie “Cinderella.”

James, 25, has a short resume of films. Disney’s “Cinderella” is only her second American picture.

She’s appeared in three other films, all British. He last U.S. film was 2012’s “Wrath of the Titans.” She played a minor role in the “Clash of the Titans” sequel.

James appeared in two other British television shows before landing her role in “Downton Abbey” in 2012.

Her character, Lady Rose McClare, was a recurring role in Season 3 and became a featured role the following season. Lady Rose’s marriage in Season 5 was a major story line.

Although her career in film and television is just getting off the ground, Lily has acting in her blood. Her father is actor and musician James Thompson. She graduated in 2010 from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London.

Much of her early work was on the stage. She won raves for several of her roles in plays.

James has a stunning freshness about her and alluring sex appeal. As one London critic wrote: “We may have a new star actress on our hands…”
