I have updated the gallery with outtakes and magazine scans. First of all with a photoshoot from Marie Claire magazine (October 2012) alongside actresses Oona Chaplin and Antonia Thomas. I have also added outtakes from Nylon magazine (May 2013), unfortunately the photos are really small but I will replace them as soon as I find them in a better quality! I’ve added digital scans of November-issue (2012) of aMuse magazine featuring Lily.
Sophie will actually play one of the evil step sisters — Drizella – to her “Downton” co-star, Lily James, who is playing the titular character. (On “Downton” Lily plays Lady Rose, one of the members of the family who Sophie’s character, Daisy, cooks for.)
“It’s very exciting ‘cause I’m going upstairs and Lily’s going downstairs. Tables have turned! I’m gonna be lording it over her. I’m going to be so cruel,” Sophie joked when AccessHollywood.com spoke to her at PBS’ Television Critics Association Summer Tour day last week.
Congratulations to the cast and crew of ‘Silent Treatment’ for their first official selection at the 2013 Fort Lauderdale Film Festival! As soon as I know more about this, I will share the information here.
Silent Treatment’s 1st Official Selection is the 2013 Fort Lauderdale Film Festival!
FLFF, celebrating its 28th year, is known to be a festival with innovative programming and a commitment to emerging filmmakers.
The young aristocrat will get a few stiff upper lips quivering over her romance with a black man.
The character of fun-loving Lady Rose – played by Lily James, 24 – was brought in to spice up the series.
When the award-winning period drama returns to our screens this autumn viewers will meet the newcomer, jazz singer Jack Ross, played by Gary Carr.
He is the first black character on the show and it is rumoured he will have a taboo affair with Lady Rose.
“The plot lines are going to be sensational this time round,” said a show insider.
Their relationship will give the snobby Dowager Countess – played by Dame Maggie Smith – something else to complain about.
Her great niece, who has moved in to Downton, upset relatives in previous series with her flirty behaviour.
Lily was seen arriving at The Mayfair Hotel on August 13, 2013 in London for a ‘Downton Abbey’ (season 4) screening.

There aren’t exactly a lack of Cinderella adaptations. From the musical versions to Disney’s animated take, even the live-action Drew Barrymore re-telling, everyone has their favorite.
Disney wants to add one more to the slate, and called on Thor director Kenneth Branagh to bring the impoverished, unlucky heroine to the screen once more. Fans attending Disney’s D23 Expo on Saturday got a chance to see a pre-taped segment with Branagh, who teased audiences with his plans for the film and the story and how he plans to honor the beloved animated classic.
Set to hit theaters in March 2015, none of the cast or crew could attend, since they’re about to start production. Sean Bailey, president of the Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture Productions, promised “we will be faithful to the original material,” but added that they hoped to elevate it as well, showing the politics of the royal court while following Cinderella from her time as a young girl to the fateful night when she’s given that dress and those slippers and heads to the ball.
In the pre-taped segment, Branagh showed a screen test with the new Cinderella (Downton Abbey’s Lily James) wearing a makeshift blue gown meant to represent the one she’ll wear to the ball. As the Prince, Richard Madden of Game of Thrones will be a “funny, smart, sexy prince. A great complimentary match for Cinderella,” said Branagh. Cate Blanchett’s wicked stepmother will be at turns wicked, but also witty, and Helena Bonham Carter’s Fairy Godmother will be “warm and tender and funny.” Branagh says she’s the “voice who lets us know that all will be well.”
Branagh is concerned with getting the iconic scenes right — from the transformation of the pumpkin into the elaborate carriage, to Cinderella’s entrance into the ballroom, to the moment when she realizes the slipper does, in fact, fit. If Branagh’s excitement is any indication, this newest take on the girl who loses her slipper might just be a new classic after all.
