Los Angeles, June 2: Actress Lily Collins knows what she'll be doing the rest of the year.


The daughter of singer Phil Collins appears in the new 3D vampire film called "Priest" co-starring Paul Bettany, Stephen Moyer and Maggie Q.

She will star opposite Taylor Lautner this fall in the movie "Abduction."

In 2010 she'll star in 'Mortal Instruments' which is based on a popular, fantasy young-adult book series by Cassandra Clare.

Now, her biggest role to date is being cast as Snow White alongside Julia Roberts and Armie Hammer.

"The process for me happened in 24 hours. I actually read in the afternoon one day and met with Tarsem (Singh) that night and was cast the next afternoon right when I got off a plane.

"I got the phone call, I picked up, I started shaking and they started to tell me. And it was April Fools! It was April 1st.

"I started out the conversation saying 'before we go any further if this is a joke it's not very funny because this is something I want so badly!' and I screamed and started crying. For me this is a dream come true."

The movie is one of two Snow White films hitting theaters in 2012. The Collins film is now scheduled to premiere in March of 2012 while Universal's "Snow White and the Huntsmen" starring Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron is set for a June 2010 release date.

The 22-year-old says her dream co-star is Meryl Streep.

"I would love to work with Meryl Streep. I just love her, I adore her and I think that she is she's so inspirational and I feel like the work she's done from the first films that she's done up until now she's always someone very different and she embraces and embodies the characters to a T.

"You don't know you almost don't know it's her because she completely transforms and I just feel like I would learn a lot just by being on set and watching her." AP
