Lily Collins: Phil Collins Daughter, Lily Collins, the daughter of the rock singer Phil Collins, is lined up to play Snow White in a Hollywood film in which Julia Roberts will play the wicked queen. Phil Collins apologised recently for his success, saying the overplaying of his music had made “people want to strangle” him.
The ageing rocker may soon feel the need to beg forgiveness for the achievements of his daughter, Lily Collins, as Mandrake can disclose that she is being lined up to play Snow White in a big-budget Hollywood film starring Julia Roberts.
“She is absolutely thrilled,” says a friend of the 22-year-old actress. “Her daddy will be equally excited.”
Collins, whose mother is the rock star’s second wife, the American-born Jill Tavelman, is said to have hugely impressed the producers of the film at her audition.
Roberts, who is best known for her role in Pretty Woman, will play the queen in the 3D retelling of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale. The prince will be Armie Hammer, who appeared in the Oscar-winning film about Facebook The Social Network.
