Lily James Quotes

“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.” – Lily James

“I think I’m up for not trying to play a literary heroine. I think I’d rather do someone that has just been created in a script rather than in a book that everyone knows and loves. The difficulty with it and the reason these characters are so loved is that every woman and man that reads it understands it in a different way.” – Lily James

“I can only show what I have received from the characters. That’s what’s scary because you’re never going to be everyone’s taste, and you don’t want to let people down. But, I can only do what I can do.” – Lily James

“I think I’m up for not trying to play a literary heroine. I think I’d rather do someone that has just been created in a script rather than in a book that everyone knows and loves. The difficulty with it and the reason these characters are so loved is that every woman and man that reads it understands it in a different way.” – Lily James

“It took me a while to warm to the ’20s costumes on ‘Downton.’ I love it when women accentuate their curves, and that era was all about hiding them. The shapes they wore then were in tune with female empowerment. Cutting off their hair and hiding their busts was a way of saying, ‘We’re equal to men!’” – Lily James
