English actress Lily James has landed a major role in the new movie Baby Driver. James is no stranger to the limelight as she starred in the hit television series Downtown Abbey, British-American drama series War & Peace, and scored the lead role in the 2015 film Cinderella.
At 28, James has shown her versatility on TV and the big screen, except this time it will be in a more modern context compared to her last period piece few roles. We’ve usually seen James in old-fashioned settings, but Baby Driver takes place in the grand present. Hopefully, that means some skimpy outfits. She is set to play a young waitress that becomes the romantic interest of the main character Miles Baby, played by Ansel Elgort.
Baby Driver is about a young and talented getaway driver, Baby, who becomes a better driver as he raises the music in his car to increase his focus. He looses both of his parents as a child in a car accident and develops tinnitus. The music has forever since been his safe haven and is a major factor in the movie.
James gets caught in the mix of a heist that Baby must help anchor by driving the getaway car. Jamie Foxx will bring his comedic influence to the script which should make for a very entertaining film that comes out today, June 28th. With all this being said, how about we take a look at the gorgeous actress that is Lily James.
