Lily May Loveless is an English actress, best known for her role as Naomi Campbell in the BAFTA award winning drama Skins.

Loveless made her acting debut in the third series of Skins, playing the sexually confused, outspoken political activist teenager Naomi Campbell. She has compared her character to herself as a more extreme version, and has described the more intense scenes, such as sex scenes, as beneficial experiences that help "push" her as an improving actress.

Loveless was a performer in Psychotic Dance Company, a dance group that specialises in street dance fused with other urban dance styles. Loveless received the 2007 Jack Petchey Achievement Award. In June 2007, she performed with the Psychotic Dance Company at the Tottenham Carnival.

In 2010, she played the character of Chloe in the adaptation of Mark Billingham's Sleepyhead. Following this, Loveless secured many roles, including Anna in The Fades penned by former Skins writer, Jack Thorne (playing the role in both the pilot and the following series); Sadie in Sky Living's supernatural drama, Bedlam alongside Theo James, Charlotte Salt and former Skins co-stars Will Young and Hugo Speer; Bex in BBC children's drama Combat Kids; and an appearance as homeless teenage runaway, Ellie, in the final series of The Sarah Jane Adventures. She ended 2011 making her film debut in Nirpal Bhogal's Sket playing the part of Hannah. After its premiere at the London Film Festival, the film was released nationwide on 28 October 2011.

She will soon be seen in Nihat Seven's drama Candle to Water, and the BBC drama, Good Cop, written by Stephen Butchard.

Outside film and television, Loveless recently appeared alongside actor Matthew Lewis in the promo video for A Band of Burier's 'Filth' directed by Blake Claridge.
