Lily Luahana Cole, is an English model and actress. She was born December 27, 1987 in Torquay, Devon, England, UK. Cole’s modelling career was sparked from a chance encounter while walking through Soho when she was approached by Benjamin Hart, who asked her to consider modelling. She initially declined, later saying, “I was cynical enough to think it wouldn’t come to much”, though she later changed her mind and signed with Storm Models. Her first leading role came in Terry Gilliam’s 2009 fantasy film, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, playing Valentina, the teenage daughter of Christopher Plummer’s title character, Dr Parnassus, whom Parnassus has promised to the Devil (Tom Waits) upon her 16th birthday. She is currently represented by IMG models.
