Lili Simmons was born in La Jolla, an affluent neighborhood in San Diego, California, on July 23, 1993. Like many beautiful young women with aspirations to become an actress, she was first discovered as a model well before making the transition into television ad film. Lili got her start at the Ford Modeling Agency. It was through Ford Models that she was able to book several high profile gigs for herself, such as becoming the face of such brands as Bebe and Roxy. She also did print ad work with companies such as J.C. Penney and Saturn.
By 2010, Lili had finally made the transition into acting. Her first official gig came in the form of a webseries titled "Hollywood is Like High School with Money," which was based around a popular book series by the same name. From here, she was able to make a smooth transition into television by booking a guest spot on the Disney XD series, "Zeke and Luthor." It was obvious at this point that with her youthful looks, the future was very bright for the talented model, and by 2011, her career really began to pick up steam.
After continuing to book guest spots on such youth-oriented series as "Jane by Design" and the TV movie, "Geek Charming," Lili began to make her way into more adult-themed television. By 2013, she had finally caught her big break, as she was cast as series regular Rebecca Bowman on Cinemax's "Banshee," which really allowed her to show her range on a series aimed primarily at adults. This type of role only expanded her resume, as the following year she was cast on the similarly adult-themed HBO series, "True Detective." With the roles continuing to flood in, it is safe to assume that a long and prosperous career is in store for the gorgeous brunette.
