Amelia Warner (born 4 June 1982[1]) is an English actress, as well as a musician who performs under the name Slow Moving Millie.

Early life

Warner was born Amelia Catherine Bennett[2] in Merseyside, United Kingdom,[1] the only child of actors Annette Ekblom and Alun Lewis.[3] Her paternal uncle is actor Hywel Bennett.

Career

Warner got her start in acting as a member of the Royal Court’s youth theatre group. She also starred in a 2000 BBC adaptation of Lorna Doone and has had supporting roles in films such as Æon Flux and Stoned.

In 2015, she self-released a classical instrumental EP titled, Arms. In 2016, Amelia began scoring films starting with ‘Mum’s List’ followed by ‘Mary Shelley’. After working under the stage name of Slow Moving Millie, Amelia shed that persona after discovering she did not like performing live on stage, and turned to releasing albums and scoring for cinema. In 2017, she released her second EP titled ‘Visitors’ under her name, Amelia Warner.[4]

Slow Moving Millie

Amelia began her music career in July 2009 when she wrote and performed the song “Beasts” under the name Slow Moving Millie for a Virgin Media television commercial. The track was then released on 17 August 2009. [5] Her second single, “Rewind City” was also used for another advertisement, for Orange UK, and was directed by Ringan Ledwidge.[6] In October 2011, Warner signed a record deal with Island Records. Her cover version of The Smiths‘ 1984 B-Side “Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want” was released on 11 November 2011 was selected as the soundtrack to the John Lewis 2011 Christmas advertisement. Since releasing her album, ‘Renditions’, she also composed music for adverts and short films.

Personal life

Warner dated Colin Farrell from late 2000 to November 2001.[7] In 2010, she met Northern Irish actor and model Jamie Dornan. They were engaged in 2012 and married in 2013:[8] they have two daughters.[8][9][10][11]
