Here at GLAMOUR HQ, we’ve been absolutely gripped by Netflix show, You, the psychological thriller based around a bookstore, a creepy basement and a serial-killing bookworm. Haven’t seen it yet? U k, hun?
As well as our awkward fascination with Penn Badgley’s serial killer character, Joe Goldberg, we’ve developed a slight girl crush on Beck – the object of his affection. Despite being killed off in season 1, that won’t be the last we’ll be seeing of Elizabeth Lail. Here’s everything you need to know about Hollywood’s new darling – and why she’s set for serious success.
Everything we know about Netflix’s ‘You’ season 2 (and it’s set to be pretty explosive)
Who is Elizabeth Lail?
Elizabeth Lail is a 26-year-old American actress raised in Asheboro, North Carolina. She graduated from the University of North Carolina School of the arts in 2014, and moved to New York to pursue stage work shortly after.
It was not long before Elizabeth made her acting debut in ABC’s Once Upon A Time.
She is also fiercely supportive of women’s rights and is a staunch campaigner. She featured in a video for breast cancer awareness and also joined her fellow females at the Women’s March in New York.
What has she starred in?
Elizabeth is best recognised for her role as Anna in adventure fantasy television series, Once Upon A Time, and, more recently, the leading part as Guinevere Beck in the smash-hit Netflix series, You. The actress has also starred in The Blacklist, The Good Fight and Dead of Summer.

Who does she play in You?
You’ll probably recognise Elizabeth Lail for her stand-out role as Guinevere Beck in the wildly popular Netflix thriller. Her character plays an aspiring writer who falls victim to the psychopathic tendencies of an unstable bookstore owner named Joe. As the series unfolds, Joe begins to axe everyone from Beck’s life who he deems a threat, including her ex boyfriend and best friend.
Spoiler Alert: Unfortunately Beck gets killed off at the end of the first series so she won’t be returning for season two. However, you can expect to see A LOT more of Elizabeth in the coming years.
What’s next for Elizabeth?
Elizabeth was such a hit in You that we predict BIG things for her. She has already amassed over 700,000 Instagram followers with the world desperate to know what’s next for her.
