Acting CareerAfter a brilliant debut and worthy career continuation, Lucy got recognition in cinematography, and every year, this feeling of recognition only grew stronger.

It's a screen version of a biography of an American writer, Jerome David Salinger, who became famous for his novel Rebel in the Rye. Besides Boynton, Zoey Deutch, Kevin Spacey, and Nicholas Hoult also starred in the film.It was incredible how the attitude of casting directors changed after I had gone from brunette to blonde. I auditioned for the same projects, the same roles with different hair colors, but when I went to blonde, I heard everyone saying something like this, Great, you'll be portraying that careless girl. I try to avoid such things.
In November, the audience had a chance to appreciate Lucy's acting in the sensational screen version of the detective Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie. The actress portrayed a sickly countess, Helena Andrenyi, a wife of a Hungarian count, Rudolph Andrenyi, (Sergei Polunin), and a younger sister of Sonia Armstrong (Miranda Raison).
