Cara’s fash­ion-to-film joy ride

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Variety - AP

Bri­tish model Cara Delev­ingne (right) wants peo­ple to know that she didn’t strut di­rectly from the fash­ion run­way onto Hol­ly­wood movie sets.

The 22-year-old says that she wasn’t hand-picked by stu­dio ex­ec­u­tives for her lead role in Pa­per Towns. She won the part af­ter an au­di­tion process that in­cluded 100 other ac­tors. “Cara killed it in the chem­istry read. We all knew as soon as she walked in,” co-star Nat Wolff said in a re­cent in­ter­view.

“I killed all the other ac­tresses that went up for the role,” Delev­ingne joked, laugh­ing along­side Wolff. She will ap­pear in four films ex­pected to be re­leased this year, and plays DC Comics vil­lain/hero­ine En­chantress in Sui­cide Squad. She will also co-star with ac­tor Dane DeHaan in di­rec­tor Luc Bes­son’s big-bud­get sci-fi film, Va­le­rian.

“The whole thing has been a joy ride. I’m just fol­low­ing my dream,” said Delev­ingne, adding: “I don’t feel like I’m stop­ping mod­el­ing. It’s just def­i­nitely slow­ing down.”
