The young actress, who got her start as a model, has seen significant advancement in her career since her on-screen debut. The actress is also known to be fun, vibrant, beautiful and down to earth. Here’s more information about her.
Who is Lili Simmons? Bio & Age
Lili Marie Simmons was born in a beach community; Cardiff by the sea, in Encinitas, which borders Solana Beach to the south in San Diego County, California on the 23rd of July, 1993. The young actress was discovered when she was only fifteen by her talent manager, Kale Linden.
Since then she has built a very successful career in both modeling and acting. Beyond that, much of Lili’s early and personal life is kept under wraps and away from the media.
Family: Her Parents
Lili was born to Thomas Curtis and Eve Simmons. Her family has mixed ancestry as her mother is part Swedish, Danish, Dutch and Norwegian. Besides this, there is not a lot of information about Lili’s parents and her family online presently.
It is also not known if Lili has siblings or is an only child – although it is largely assumed that she is, as no sisters or brothers have popped up on any of her highly social media pages.
Before her acting career, Lili Simmons was first a model. During her years as a model, she worked for Ford, Bebe stores, and Roxy. She also made appearances in commercials and print advertisement for companies like Saturn.
Lili began acting fully in 2010 where she featured in the web series – Hollywood is Like High School, playing the role of Quinn Whitaker. She also appeared in the 2011 Disney Channel Original Movie Geek Charming. She believed that the movie would be appreciated by more teenage girls who tend to be much more concerned about popularity in school and how they are to deal with it.
She later made an appearance in an episode of the sitcom Mr. Sunshine, which starred Matthew Perry in its lead role.
Lili Simmons, in 2012, starred in the film Fat Kid Rule the World which was directed by Matthew Lillard. Also in 2012, she appeared in an episode of Jane by Design.
In 2013, she started playing the role of ‘Rebecca Bowman’, a defiant Amish girl on the Cinemax series Banshee. She was surprised when she got the role seeing as she did not audition for Rebecca but for another character – Deva Hopewell. Her role in Banshee definitely placed her on the map. Banshee seems to be the first thing that comes to mind when Lili Simmons is mentioned.
Come 2014, she began taking intermittent roles on Hawaii-Five O and the HBO series True Detective. Two years latter in 2016, she took part in another HBO series, the critically acclaimed WestWorld.
And in 2017, she was cast in Showtime’s git drama series Ray Donovan, playing the role of Natalie James. She has also appeared in other movies like Bone Tomahawk (2015), Dirty Lies (2016), Deux Face (2017) and Bad Match (2017).
Personal Life, Dating & Boyfriend
The actress is said to be in a relationship with Tom Pelphrey. The actor, who happened to be a ‘Daytime Emmy Award’ winning actor, has always treated Lili Simmons admirably.
The two flaunted their relationship on social media as most couples these days are prone to do. Lili posted a photo of the birthday party Tom organized for her. Tom also posted a picture saying how happy he was to be with Lili Simmons. But as of now, such posts have dwindled and are no longer seen.
Height, Weight & Body Measurements
Lili Simmons is an ardent and a stern believer of eating right and healthy living. She is one who cannot do without a workout and balanced diet.
To this effect, the model turned actress is 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs 54 kgs. Her body measurements are 33-24-35 in, while her bra size is 32A, her dress size is size 2 (US) and her shoe size is 8/39 (EU).
She recommends that medication and constant exercise help to keep not just the body fit, but the mind also. Wellness is a big part of her life’s philosophy. To satisfy her curiosity for healthy eating, she tried ‘the raw food diet’ once. As expected, it was not a pleasant experience.
The 24-year old also has the habit of taking green tea a lot, as well as adding ‘greens’ (leafy vegetables) to her smoothies. Her love for physical exercise cannot be quenched even with distance from her gym. It’s either she finds a new gym around especially at a hotel or she calls her trainer to give her little workouts. She literally cannot go a full day without it.
Lili Simmons, with her steady progress in the industry, has been able to amass for herself a net worth of $2 million. As she continues to forge ahead, she will most likely surpass the current net worth. Admittedly that is an impressive amount for someone so young in the industry but Lili has proven she has what it takes and is deserving of every penny.
