Fit girl: Lily James







We came across this splendid picture of young English actress Lily James while looking for something else (what it was we can no longer recall).  It is from last year's low budget independent film Fast Girls (2012) about lady sprinters not competing at the Olympics (they couldn't get the necessary clearances).  We haven't seen the film and it has had mixed reviews but given this very fine study of Miss James it may be worth a spin.

The actresses had six weeks to get in shape for the role and Lily nearly didn't get the part as she missed the running audition and had to send in a video of herself running instead.

The lovely Lily was born in Esher, just a couple of miles from where Triple P lives. 




Although Lily looks very fine indeed she really isn't a convincing looking sprinter and looks more like an 800m runner.  She needed to do a lot more sit ups to get a Jessica Ennis stomach!
