Who is Lily Sastry?
Lily Sastry made her debut as a child artist in the 2004 film “Tooth”. She also appeared in small roles with her father in Mr. Bean’s Holiday and Johnny English Reborn. Later, she went on to learn cabaret and performed at The Pheasantry. Lily told the audience, “This is my first cabaret show. This is my first time I’ve been dressed this small and I’m very excited.”
She loves music and became a part of a band. She shared her thoughts regarding her career in an interview, saying “Vocally, I am better than I have ever been; physically, mentally — it’s the hardest I have ever worked on a gig. I have just challenged myself in every possible way, and taken risks.
I had always been a writer, but I was about 14/15 when I really started writing music. I just loved writing stories and poems, coming up with melodies; I was always challenging myself. Of course, already being a singer and performer, I worked out pretty quickly what I wanted to do.”
