About this title:

Synopsis: When Emily Lloyd burst onto the movie scene at 17 she was hailed as the next Marilyn Monroe. Her stunning performance as precocious Lynda Mansell in David Leland’s coming of age drama Wish You Were Here thrust her into the spotlight and cemented the film’s reputation as a British classic. Hollywood beckoned and Emily landed high profile roles alongside Bruce Willis and starred with Brad Pitt in Robert Redford’s Oscar-winning epic A River Runs Through It. Yet beneath her smile Emily was fighting a crippling mental illness that threatened to destroy her. Now, in her searingly honest autobiography, Emily describes the incredible highs and earth-shattering low that she endured through a tumultuous acting career. She reveals how she overcame a traumatic childhood event to go on and win a BAFTA nomination; her agonizing decision to terminate a pregnancy at the height of her career, not realizing she was expecting twins; the thousands of dollars she lost to a fraudulent manager; her devastating malaise that derailed her career and led to suicidal tendencies and self-harm; and the shocking incident that served as a wake-up call.

About the Author: Emily Lloyd has starred in 19 films since making her movie debut at 16 in David Leland’s acclaimed Wish You Were Here in 1986—a performance that earned her a BAFTA nomination and best actress awards from both the Evening Standard Film Awards and the National Society of Film Critics. She moved from America and, amongst other films, appeared in Cookie alongside Peter Falk, In Country opposite Bruce Willis, Chicago Joe and the Showgirl with Kiefer Sutherland, and in A River Runs Through It, directed by Robert Redford. Since returning to the UK, she has starred in When Saturday Comes with Sean Bean and Welcome to Sarajevo with Woody Harrelson. On stage she has appeared in productions of Hamlet, playing Ophelia, and Maz Klapper – A Life in Pictures.
