Cara Delevingne to make her TV debut

Luxe Models were pleased to see that Cara Delevingne will make her television debut in the latest Sky Arts series ‘Playhouse Presents’, where she will star in a war-time drama.

The 21-year old model will star in a one-off production called Timeless alongside Sylvia Syms. The show will tell the story of two women who have been separated from their lovers during the war.

Delevingne will play Chloe, a young girl whose soldier fiancé is away fighting in Afghanistan. She is looking after her great-grandmother (Syms), when a knock on the door brings devastating news about her young lover.

The two women then bond over their shared experience of loss, love and hope. The episode was written by Tim Firth, whose previous credits include Calendar Girls and Confessions of a Shopaholic. It is scheduled to show on UK television on the 19th of June.

While this is Cara’s first televisual outing, she is no stranger to the acting world. She starred in 2012’s Anna Karenina and is due to appear in Face of an Angel, a movie based on the story surrounding the murder of Meredith Kercher.

Delevingne has said that while she adores modelling and really appreciates the opportunities it has opened up for her, acting is her real passion. So is this the start of a new career? Hopefully she’ll maintain both! She’s been busy lately modelling for Stella McCartney and will be headed for the Chanel runway at Paris Fashion Week.
