With the recent home release of Stuck In Love and the January’s home release of The Mortal Instruments, we take a quick look at the highlights of Lily Collin’s career so far.

In Stuck In Love Lily Collins plays Samantha, who with the help of her novelist father Bill (Greg Kinnear) has just seen her first novel published. Promiscuous and unattached, Samantha’s world is rocked by classmate Lou (Lerman), who tries his hardest to prove to Samantha that they are more suited than anybody.

Initially Samantha is a tough character to embrace, but through a performance showing great range Lily Collins demonstrates the character’s humanity and brings realness to the role.

Victim of unfortunate timing, Mirror Mirror’s glitzy oh-so sweet version of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs faced off against Kristen Stewart’s moodier outlook, Snow White & the Huntsman. Starring alongside Julia Roberts, Collins showcased her abilities to lead an all-star cast and brought her to the attention of audiences globally.[/three_fourth]
