Choosing a woman a week on my blog is not an easy task, for today women have the capacity to enthral and are seductive for different reasons.
My choice this week is Lily Chloe Ninette Thomson, better known by her stage name Lily James. This twenty-seven-year-old British actress is renowned for her work in Downton Abbey, Cinderella and War and Peace. She began to gain international repute in 2012 after appearing in Hollywood films such as Wrath of the Titans and Fast Girls and was seen in further television roles.
James was born in Esher, Surrey, the daughter of Ninette V. A., an actress, and musician James S. Thomson. Her grandmother, Helen Horton, was an American actress. She began her education at the Arts Educational School in Tring and subsequently went on to study acting at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, graduating in 2010.
Since then James hasn’t wasted any time in establishing herself, her nascent talent glittering with every step she takes. Her looks and her artistic provenance suggest this young lady is destined to improve with the passage of time, showing an angelic freshness I find totally infectious.
As these pictures clearly show, she has a low-key yet overwhelming presence that engulfs the onlooker and leaves the eyes in a melodic trance.
