James and Lily Potter were killed in their cottage in Godric's Hollow by Lord Voldemort on the 31st October 1981.
Voldemort entered the house and was met by James, who had left his wand in the living room. James shouted at Lily, who was also wandless, to escape before Voldemort murdered him. Voldemort then went upstairs where Lily was barricading the door. She put Harry into his crib and then stood over it, begging Voldemort not to kill him. He told her to stand aside and, when she refused, he killed her before turning his wand on Harry.
Well, Voldemort was coming to kill Harry so that he couldn't fulfill a certain prophecy made by a certain Seer. James Potter attempted to hold off the Dark Lord while his wife ran off to protect Harry. Voldemort killed James and pursued and cornered Lily Potter. He told her to step aside, that she needn't die. He only wanted Harry. Lily refused, and Voldemort killed her. Next, he turned his wand to the infant Harry and cast the Killing Curse. But the curse rebounded upon Voldemort himself, weakening him beyond belief while Harry only sustained his legendary lightening scar. Harry had been safe from the curse because Lily sacrificed herself to protect him.
They died right before the first one. You see Lily's death in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's (Sorcerer's) Stone and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part Two.
They were 21. Lily and James Potter were born in 1960 and died in 1981.
Lily was born 30th Janurary 1960 and James 10th March 1960. They died on the 31st October 1981 and were both twenty one when they died.
They died in their house in Godric's Hollow.
31 October 1981
Most likely upper 20's to mid-30's
They died to protect Harry: if they hadn't died the whole story would be very different or maybe even not have existed. The whole concept of Harry Potter depends solely on the death of his parents.
Lily may have liked snape more than James because he was more quiet and probably was a good listener. Lily choose James because snape decied to go to the dark side and that was against every thing she believed in. He was also popuar and a very good wisard just like herself. Also he loved her very much and ended up marrieing each other and having a son. Before lily and James died snape was back on the good side and confessed to dumbuldoor that valdamort was after harry, lily, and James. Becase it was he who was in the profassy. To keep lily safe and unharmed. So dumbledoor hid them. Though pettygrewin blabed and told valdamort where they were hiding. valdamort went after the potters and killed James first. Then he went to where lily was and did the killing curse on her. But when he did the killing curse it back fired on valdamort and almost killed himself. harry was fine and he survived because lily sacrificed herself so harry could live baecause he was her only child. In the end snape was mad at valdamort for killing lily because he loved her. He doesn't like harry because he has a resembleince of his father witch makes him mad. But also he has a resemblence of lily witch makes him sad so he saves harry because of lily. That is why Lily potter likes James more than snape. And why snape doesn't like James, also why harry didn't die when valdamort did the killing curse on harry.

*****SPOILER ALERT******* Ginny Weasley doesn't die. In the Epilogue, she marries Harry Potter and has three kids; James Sirius Potter, Albus Severus Potter, and Lily Luna Potter (in that order).
Severus Snape asked Lord Voldemort to spare Lily Potter because he loved Lily and didn't want her to die. Dumbledore was disgusted that he didn't care about James or Harry.
Lily and James Potter were martyrs, they gave up their lives to save their son. Harry himself was willing to die to protect others, although the killing curse only killed the Horcrux inside him.
She was murdered by Lord Voldermort
No, Ginny survived the series. She later went on to marry Harry Potter and together they had three children named James Sirius, Albus Severus and Lily Luna Potter.
James Wright - potter - died in 1887.
Lord Voldemort killed James and Lily Potter. He then attempted to kill Harry but the curse backfired as Lily had chosen to die to protect her son. The rebounding curse destroyed Voldemort's body, and the piece of soul attached itself to the only living thing in the house - Harry.
He doesn't die
It is a doe because Snape always loved Harry's mother, Lily, and her patronus was a doe. His never changed as he always loved her, as shown in the final book. Lily's patronus is a doe as it is complimentary to James Potter's stag.
He didn't die in any of them.
Lily was just a fictional character in the movie 8 Mile
