MARIE CLAIRE – Lily James on her initial reaction to the movie: “When I saw the e-mail from my agent, I was like, This sounds terrible! Then within 20 pages of the script, I thought, This is so cool! Somehow these two worlds join together, and it’s a riot.”
On her first big role as Audrey in Little Shop of Horrors: ”I remember putting socks in my bra to make my boobs look bigger. I’d love to do Little Shop of Horrors again. Now that I’m slightly more mature, I wouldn’t need socks in my bra.”
On dating her costar Matt Smith: “He just made me laugh all the time. I actually loved being able to talk about work. It was great that he had to propose to me.”

SHOWBIZ JUNKIES – The first photo has been released of The Kaiser’s Last Kiss stars Lily James (Cinderella and the upcoming Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) as Mieke de Jong and Jai Courtney (Terminator Genisys) as Captain Stefan Brandt. Production has wrapped on the dramatic movie based on Alan Judd’s bestselling book. The WWII drama was adapted for the screen by Simon Burke, directed by David Leveaux, and features Christopher Plummer, Eddie Marsan, and Janet McTeer.
The Kaiser’s Last Kiss takes place around the 1940 invasion of Holland which brings the Nazis face to face with their former monarch, Kaiser Wilhelm (Plummer) – exiled to the Netherlands since 1917. In an effort to thwart the Nazis, the Dutch resistance work covertly with Winston Churchill in inserting an agent into the Kaiser’s household. A lethally dangerous love affair ignites between a German officer (Courtney) and a young Jewish Dutch woman (James) with consequences that neither they nor the Kaiser himself could have foreseen. As the Nazis race to identify and eliminate the agent, the threads of history conspire with the recklessness of the heart to dumbfound them.
DEADLINE – Young Woman and the Sea, based on the book by Glenn Stout, which chronicles the the daring journey of the first woman to ever swim across the English Channel, has been set up at Paramount Pictures by producer Jerry Bruckheimer and he has tapped his Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales writer to adapt. Jeff Nathanson, who also scripted the cat-and-mouse Catch Me If You Can, is adapting the book and Lily James (Cinderella) will star as Gertrude “Trudy” Ederle who in 1926 captured world attention when she swam across the 21 mile Channel — an incredible feat for anyone, let alone a teen.
The daughter of a German butcher from Manhattan, Ederle was a competitive swimmer, an Olympic athlete who won Gold in the 1924 Games when she decided to attempt crossing the Channel. She undertook the feat after first swimming 22 miles from Battery Park in New York to Sandy Hook, NJ in a record that stood for 81 years.
When she set her mind to crossing the English Channel, she contracted with two newspapers and sold her story, thereby financing her quest. There was actually a race among women who would be first to cross as only five men had done so before.
She and her sister, Meg, constructed a two-piece swimsuit — unheard of in the 1920s where skirt lengths were below the knee and ordinary swimsuits looked like summer dresses — and used candle wax to seal her goggles to make them leak-proof.
After struggling against waves, winds and some of the most treacherous waters anywhere, the relentless Ederle overcame all odds and finally completed her journey. The moment she reached shore, she rocketed to worldwide celebrity status and was known as “Trudy of America.” But her triumph was much more crossing of the Channel because she shattered centuries of female stereotypes and opened doors for generations of women to come.Continue Reading
