Rowan Sebastian Atkinson and Sunetra Sastry gave birth to Lily Sastry on July 11, 1995, in London, UK.

Lily is an English name that means “purity and innocence.” It comes from the white lily flower, which signifies purity. A bit different from the expectation of the “Mr. Bean” image, Lily, is a gorgeous lady.

Her sun sign is Cancer. Cancerian women are cheerful, warm, and welcoming; however, they can be highly sentimental, complicated, and possessive.

Lily, Rowan’s only daughter, attended an all-girls school in London. Since her school days, she has loved to sing, write songs, and act in musicals. So at age five, she began taking singing lessons.

By the end of 2014, the Atkinson family started falling apart. Lily’s parents separated in November 2015. After that, Lily seemed heartbroken. Seeing her dad leave his family at such a young age was devastating. Nevertheless, she took time off, changed to a new name, and rebounded to her usual self.

Currently, she lives with her mother. Lily also ditched her surname and adopted her mother’s maiden name, Sastry. She did this as a form of respect for her Indian mom. It is culturally unique for an Indian mom to provide a matrilineal name for her children.

Her spokesperson suggested that Lily would like to make her career away from her father’s spotlight. And “Sastry” would be a better stage name.

Lily Sastry is 1.78 meters tall and has a slim body. She is a fitness enthusiast who works out to maintain her physique.
