By SARAH BULL

You don't take after your dad in the looks department then! Rowan Atkinson posed with daughter Lily and wife Sunetra at the premiere of Johnny English Reborn in London this afternoon

He might have been the one everyone was waiting to see at the Johnny English Reborn premiere this afternoon.

But when Rowan Atkinson arrived with his family in Leicester Square for the red carpet event today, all eyes were on his stunning daughter Lily.

The 16-year-old clearly takes after her mother Sunetra in the looks department, and stood out from the crowd as she posed for photographers at the event.


Stunning: The pretty 16-year-old brunette looked chic in her black shift dress and leopard-print boots


Travelling in style: Atkinson poses with the Rolls Royce Phantom Coupe created especially for the movie

Atkinson, meanwhile, opted for a smart black suit as he posed on the red carpet with a sleek Rolls Royce Phantom Coupe specially created for the film.

The 56-year-old actor is returning to his role as the hapless British spy in the second installment in the hilarious Johnny English franchise.

The first Johnny English film, released in 2003 on a budget of $35 million, raked in $161 million at the box office. This time the budget is much bigger – a move to keep the franchise abreast of the Bond and Bourne films.

‘I loved the Bond movies as a child, and I still do,’ confessed Atkinson in a recent interview. 'They are hugely inspiring – a wonderful combination of glamour and adventure. The books were written in the Fifties and were all about Britain as a fading power but they had this brilliant secret agent who could make Britain look great again.'


Stylish: Gillian Anderson looked gorgeous in a white dress and gold accessorises as she arrived with partner Mark Griffiths

Smiles all round: Harry Potter star Warwick Davies treated his family to a day out at the premiere

'They’ve learned from the experience of the first film and the new one is much more like a Bond film. Everything is much more realistic, with everybody playing the reality of the situation, with this wonderful clown at the centre of it.'

But Pike added: 'It’s all good clean fun! Can’t take yourself too seriously on something like that.'


Action packed: Atkinson returns as English in the film sequel, due out on October 7th in the UK
