The Blind Side was Lily’s first role and for that reason, there aren’t that many interviews out there. While promoting the movie, she sat down with the publications InStyle, Nylon and Teen Vogue for a quick chat and photo session. When asked about her reaction to learning she had landed a part, she mentions she “felt so overwhelmed and surprised but eager to dive in.”
