Amelia Warner (born Amelia Catherine Bennett, 4 June 1982) is an English actress, as well as a musician who performs under the name Slow Moving Millie.
Warner got her start in acting as a member of the Royal Court's youth theatre group. She also starred in a 2000 BBC adaptation of Lorna Doone and has had supporting roles in recent films such as Æon Flux and Stoned.
Warner dated Colin Farrell from July to November 2001. There was speculation that they married; however, in December 2011 Warner told The Sun that the marriage was never legal: "We had a ceremony on a beach in Tahiti that was by no means legal and we knew it wasn't...It was just a thing we did on holiday."
In 2012 she met the Northern Irish actor and model Jamie Dornan. They were engaged at the end of the same year and married at Orchardleigh House in Somerset on 27 April 2013. In June 2013, the couple confirmed they were expecting their first child, and Warner gave birth to a girl named Dulcie in late November 2013.
