Lily James makes first TV appearance following Dominic West drama

Lily James appeared on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon without addressing the controversy surrounding her trip to Italy with Dominic West.

The 31-year-old actress was pictured kissing The Affair actor in Rome earlier this month. He then returned home where he put on a united front with his wife Catherine FitzGerald outside their house in the Cotswolds.

The Wests later said in a handwritten statement their marriage is ‘strong’ and they are ‘very much still together’.

Earlier this week, it was reported Lily had cancelled an appearance on The Graham Norton Show. It was also claimed she pulled out of an interview with Hollywood Foreign Press Association with just 45 minutes notice.

However, last night, she joined Jimmy on his show to discuss her new Netflix film Rebecca, teaching an acting class over Zoom and a potential Mamma Mia sequel.

She told the host she found out about her role in 2018 musical Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again on her way home from Glastonbury and said she is open to a follow-up.

‘Yeah, I want to do four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10. I’m down,’ Lily enthused.

Lily stars alongside US actor Armie Hammer in Rebecca, playing the young wife of a handsome widower.

And she revealed the creepy link between the new film and her real life after Fallon asked her about ghosts.

‘My whole life I’ve had these recurring nightmares where a dark figure walks towards me and leans over me and I wake up screaming,’ Lily disclosed.

‘I was in a dorm for nearly 10 years with one girl when I was at school and she would comfort me almost once a week, I would end up screaming.

‘I have only just realised this but her name is Rebecca. So I think she has been screwing with me my entire life.’

The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon airs Wednesdays on NBC.
