Lily Collins made her silver screen debut in 2009’s “The Blind Side,” before going on to star in a series of movies

including “Mirror Mirror" and “Love, Rosie” over just a few years.

Since then, the actor, 33, has helmed some major Netflix projects, most notably for her role as Emily Cooper in “Emily In Paris,

 which became the streaming platform’s top comedy in 2020.

Beyond her acting credentials, Collins is also the daughter of Genesis frontman, Phil Collins and his second wife, Jill Tavelman.

While at one point in her career, Collins considered dropping her last name to be taken more seriously in the industry, ultimately it was her father's own career that helped her understand the life of an entertainer and the fame that came along with it.

During the most recent Sunday Sitdown, TODAY’s Willie Geist asked the actor if her own father’s career gave her a glimpse at the type of life that she could too have one day.
