Personal Quote:

I really want to play interesting roles, but you want to work, so it's a balancing game. See more »


She is a sixth cousin of U.S. President George Bush, through her American grandmother. Lily's four times great-grandfather, Stephen Horton, was the brother of the president's four times great-grandmother, Sarah Horton (their parents were Comfort Horton and Joanna Wood). Lily is thus a sixth cousin, once removed, of the President's sons, President George W. Bush and Governor Jeb Bush. See more »
