Lucy Boynton was born into the family of the famous British journalist Graham Boynton and his wife Adriana Pielu. Until the age of five, the girl lived in New York, and then the Boyntons returned to London. Her first major role in a movie was the drama "Miss Porter", in which she played the main character of the film in her youth, she was only 12 years old at that time, and on the Boynton set she was lucky enough to work with Renee Zellweger and Ewan McGregor. In an interview, Boynton then said that she wanted to become an actress after watching the movie "My Daughter". A year later, she got a role in the family story "Ballet Shoes", and then the first series happened - "Sense and Sensibility" based on the novel by Jane Austen.
