She must actually be quite good at acting.
When we first heard that supermodel / owner of the world’s best eyebrows, Cara Delevingne, wanted to try her hand at acting we thought that it was just a fad.
A bit like a teenager’s emo phase that they will ‘soon grow out of’.
However, like a rebellious child, Cara has proven that she is really serious about this acting malarkey and has only gone and landed her first STARRING role.
And it isn’t even for a low-end, local-production film, oh no, it is for the long-awaited big screen adaptation of John Green’s bestselling novel Paper Towns.
Yes, the author behind this year’s summer blockbuster The Fault In Our Stars.
So, y’know, kind of a big deal.
Cara will be playing the lead female character, Margo, a troubled girl who goes missing from her home, leaving it to childhood friend, Q, to track her down.
Up and coming American actor, Nat Wolff, has already signed up to play Q after impressing John in his role as Isaac in The Fault In Our Stars.
The author has since tweeted how impressed he was with Cara’s audition as well, writing: “Cara Delevigne’s audition blew everyone away (including me!) and she understands Margo profoundly. I am so excited!”
Before realising he’d misspelled her surname and adding: “(I should probably learn how to spell Cara’s surname at some point.)”
Don’t worry John, we’ve all been there.
The film’s director, Jake Schreier “seconded” John’s comment, saying: “It was something special.”
WE. CAN’T. WAIT. TO. SEE. THIS.
Cara herself took to Twitter to retweet her new crew’s praises and writing: “Thank you so much guys!! I am so excited! Ahhhh! X”
So are we, Cara, so are we.
Although this is the model’s first starring role, she has already made some minor acting appearances and is definitely on the way up.
She recently finished filming the role of a mermaid in Pan and is reportedly in talks to join the cast Beach-Boys-inspired All Summer Long.
There were also rumours that Ben Stiller wants Cara on board as the female lead for the Zoolander sequel, which Cara appears to be tempted by, telling E! News: “I can’t talk about it, but I love that movie. I can quote almost all of it.”
We’ll keep our fingers crossed for that one, but in the mean time we will be eagerly awaiting Paper Towns, which is due to be released in August 2015.
Come on Cara, knock ‘em dead!
