Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower appear to be back on, according to a series of new images emerging on Instagram. After it was rumored that Collins, 26, was dating Captain America star Chris Evans, it seems she still has feelings for her Mortal Instruments: City of Bones co-star.
If her last name sounds familiar to the older crowd, it’s because Lily’s father is British pop singer Phil Collins. She has earned a name for herself though, much like Liv Tyler (daughter of Aerosmith frontman Stephen Tyler).
Once a journalist for several magazines and a news show host for Nickelodeon, she made appearances on the rebooted teen soap opera 90210. She got her break in film playing the daughter of Sandra Bullock and Tim McGraw in The Blind Side, played Snow White in Mirror Mirror, and eventually starred in her first major motion picture alongside Bower.
Bower doesn’t have any famous connections, but he’s been in more popular films. Much like Robert Pattinson, he has had roles in Twilight and Harry Potter. Eventually, Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower met on the set of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones and dated for a year before they initially split.
Recent photos posted by Collins on Instagram reveal the two may very well be back together, in a move similar to that of Jim Carrey and Cathriona White. Collins and Bower appeared very cozy together, sharing a kiss and a series of selfies with sunglasses and similarly colored hair.
The daughter of Phil Collins posted the images with captions such as “happy is what happy does. 50 shades of blush”and “sometimes it just is what it is.”

It seems The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones wasn’t just the beginning of a hopeful franchise. It was also the beginning of what could be a lasting relationship between Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower.
