Lily Allen is an English pop singer, songwriter, and actress. She is the younger sister of well known actor Keith Allen. She grew up in Wales where her parents met when her mother ended up working in a printing shop and her father decided to move in with her. Lily attended Tintin High School, a private girls boarding school in Welsh speaking Wales. Lily started to go to private music lessons at the age of 13 and continued to do so until she was in her teens.
Lily Allen’s career began when she was cast as “Sally Field” in a British film called “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. Lily’s performance was praised by the directors and producers of the film and she went on to star in various other films including” Notting Hill with Spencer trashing the city”. Then it was her turn to star in the television drama series” Merlin”, but her run on” Luther” didn’t last long as she gave birth to one of her children. This led to another career change when it was announced that Lily Allen had given birth to her son named Alexander in September 2021.
Lily Allen has also been in the music industry for quite some time; she rose to fame in the late sixties and seventies as a solo artist and the very famous English actress Nelly Furtado. Lily Allen’s career spanned several decades, though she never actually achieved the success she longed for. Some of her singles had moderate success, like the cover of “Mystery Train” by James Blunt, “Come As You Are” by The Rolling Stones, and “Magic” by The Beatles. Her early work was centered around romantic songs, which are her trademarks. However, she had hit success later on with songs that reflected her efforts to incorporate political and social messages into her music.
As a film producer, Lily Allen made three films; “A Fish called Wanda”, “Dog”, and “Babel”. All of these were successful films that starred Lily Allen, and all of them received great reviews from critics and audiences alike. Lily Allen has also produced and starred in several documentaries, including “The Secret Life of Bees”, “My Week with David Bowie”, and “Searching for Elvis”. She has also gained popularity as a presenter on the Glastonbury Festival’s news segment.
