Lily may be having quite a dilemma of late about her new romance with Billy, but actress Christel Khalil, who has starred as the character since she was a mere 15, is celebrating a major milestone event.
Happy Birthday, Christel Khalil
That’s because she was born on November 30, 1987, in Lost Angeles, California, which means that this talented performer turns 33 years old this weekend! Khalil’s first acting role was Crystal in the FOX sitcom The Sinbad Show.
Subsequent parts included guest roles on series such as Family Matters, George & Leo, and feature films like Matilda, Dragon Fury, Milo, and Interview with the Assassin.
In 2002, Khalil joined the cast of CBS’ The Young and the Restless and first appeared as Lily Winters on August 15, 2002. Her initial run ended September 2, 2005, but she returned over one year later — November 7, 2006 — and remained for a further twelve years.
For her work as Lily, Khalil received a number of award nominations, two of which she won — the 2008 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actress in a Daytime Drama Series and the 2012 Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series.
In August of 2018, Khalil made the decision to remove herself from her contract status and instead work on the CBS soap in a recurring capacity, something which she has done ever since.
Aside from YR, Khalil has also appeared on That’s So Raven, Malcolm in the Middle, NCIS: Lost Angeles and 2 Broke Girls. She voiced the role of Cornelia Hale on the children’s animated series W.I.T.C.H and acted in a number of films including Chronologia Human, Sorority Stalker, and We Need to Talk.
