GLAMOUR – Lily James is an ASOS cover star, and in the new issue she talks all about playing a Disney princess in Cinderella.

The British actress, who is perhaps best known for her role on Downton Abbey, opens up about her role as Cinderella: “Playing a Disney princess is the most amazing, unbelievable thing… and on the other, it’s completely terrifying. I would say it’s a cocktail of every sort of emotion. Princesses are great role models, they teach you about grief loss and have big hearts.”

She also talks fashion with ASOS, recalling the time she sat next to Anna Wintour at a fashion show. “I’d had a couple of drinks beforehand so I was pretty relaxed… she was so nice,” she said.

“She cracked a few jokes and pointed out dresses that she thought I could wear to the Cinderella premiere. Honestly, she was really cool”.

As well as ASOS, Lily also features in US GLAMOUR’s March issue and talks about finding her real-life Prince Charming (she’s currently dating former Doctor Who star Matt Smith)

“As cynical as I can be, there’s always a part of me that believes in love and the fairy tale. But what I like about this film is that Prince Charming doesn’t just rescue a damsel in distress-it’s about two people who make each other better. That’s the fairy tale.”

She also spoke about the glass slipper, telling GLAMOUR US: “My foot was actually CGI’d into the glass slipper. It was made out of Swarovski crystal, and I was always terrified I’d drop it! I have big, ugly feet, so luckily I had a foot double.”

ASOS Magazine’s April issue is out 25 February and available online at asos.com/magazine.

HUFFINGTONPOST – If you’ve been watching a lot of television these days, then you’ve probably caught a glimpse of the new trailer for the upcoming Disney remake of “Cinderella.” (Especially if you watch “The Bachelor.”)

And if you still have no idea who the actress playing Cinderella in the movie is, look no further for your answer. Robb Stark’s Richard Madden’s onscreen love is 25-year-old Lily James, and you just might recognize her from some award-winning TV series.

Here are five things to know about the British beauty:

1. Lily James’ real name is Lily Chloe Ninette Thomson.
The actress, born in Esher, Surrey, took her stage name in honor of her father — British actor and musician James Thompson — who died in 2008 after a cancer diagnosis.

2. Her grandmother was an actress as well.
James’ grandmother is the late American-born actress Helen Horton, who is the voice of Mother, the ship computer, in Ridley Scott’s “Alien.” She also appeared in “Superman 3” and “Phase IV.”

3. James plays Lady Rose MacClare on “Downton Abbey.”
James first appeared as the rebellious great-niece of Dowager Countess of Grantham (Maggie Smith) on the last episode of Season 3 of “Downton Abbey.” She is now a series regular, starring alongside Michelle Dockery, Laura Carmichael, Elizabeth McGovern and Hugh Bonneville on the hit show.
