If you’ve ever seen Tarzan, Brother Bear or have parents who love ’80s music, you’ll know exactly who this man is. Lily Collins is the daughter of Phil Collins – probably most famous for his song In the Air Tonight, which was famously featured in The Hangover.

Phil Collins is a HUGE artist with six solo number one albums. He was the main contributor to the Tarzan and Brother Bear soundtracks, and used to be a member of the band Genesis. His career has spanned nearly 60 years, and he’s even still touring at the age of 71.

Lily was born in 1989 to him and his then-wife, Jill Tavelman. By the age of three, she was already acting in a ’90s BBC sitcom called Growing Pains. Her first film role was as a baby ape in Tarzan, seven years later. Before Emily in Paris, she also starred in shows like 90210, Les Misérables and The Last Tycoon.

Her siblings are musician Simon Collins and actress Joely Collins.

Season three of Emily in Paris is available on Netflix now. For all the latest Netflix news, drops, quizzes and memes like The Holy Church of Netflix on Facebook.
