Lily Collins Interview – Rules Don’t Apply – “From a young age, I just felt this drive – as if it were meant to happen”
Lily Collins was born into show business. The daughter of singing legend Phil Collins, she was always primed for success. Vivacious and sparkling in person, she speaks in an upbeat and confident manner, ever smiling and gracious and even asks if you would like a coffee before starting the interview.
Q: Having a very famous father in Phil Collins, has that made you very ambitious when it comes to leaving your own mark in show business?
COLLINS: Very! (Laughs) I’ve wanted to do this for a long time. At 15 I was writing stories for magazines and then by 16 I was aware of the bigger picture. From a young age, I just felt this drive – as if it were meant to happen.
