Personal Quote:

It took me a while to warm to the '20s costumes on Downton Abbey (2010). I love it when women accentuate their curves, and that era was all about hiding them. The shapes they wore then were in tune with female empowerment. Cutting off their hair and hiding their busts was a way of saying, 'We're equal to men!' See more »

Trivia:

She has American ancestry because Lily's paternal grandmother was American actress Helen Horton, who lived in England with Lily's British grandfather, Hamish Thomson. See more »

Trademark:
