Cara Delevingne is was seen in Italy October 6 to prepare for her role in ‘The Face Of An Angel.’ She was joined by Daniel Bruhl & Kate Beckinsale in Siena for a read-through of director Michael Winterbottom’s film The Face Of An Angel. Cara will play Melanie, a young Englishwoman whom she described as ‘an independent spirited girl’.
‘The idea I had of her is that she’s like me and a lot of my friends who are 21 and travelling around Europe.’ Melanie meets a film-maker, Thomas (played by Bruhl), who is going through a mid-life crisis as he prepares to make a picture about the murder of a British student in Tuscany. He’s working alongside Simone (Beckinsale) when he meets Melanie in a bar. Melanie is taking an Italian cultural course. ‘Funnily enough, that’s what I’d love to do, and this part is a perfect excuse to learn Italian. I’ve picked up very little, but I’d like to learn more.’
On transitioning from modeling to acting; ‘Even for scripts that aren’t very good. If I’m honest, I don’t care what it is. It’s an opportunity to learn. I wouldn’t turn anything down. It’s all a good experience.’ On being a bond girl: ‘Are you kidding?! I’d do it.’
