Delev­ingne was un­der guard when she read Va­le­rian script

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Cara Delev­ingne's 'Va­le­rian and the City of a Thou­sand Plan­ets' script had its own body­guard. Af­ter the 24year-old beauty - who plays spe­cial op­er­a­tive Lau­re­line in the sci-fi saga - au­di­tioned for her role, di­rec­tor Luc Bes­son kept the de­tails of the film as tightly un­der wraps as he pos­si­bly could by em­ploy­ing se­cu­rity to sit with Cara as she read the script for the first time. She told Look mag­a­zine: "We just met in LA and then I went to see him in Paris and he put me through an ac­tor's test where you pre­tend to be an an­i­mal. "It was about phys­i­cal­ity and throw­ing your­self into some­thing. "The script was so top se­cret it had to be sent with its own body­guard and I had to sit there and read it all while the body­guard was there." Cara was de­ter­mined to do what­ever it took to be in the film be­cause she is such a big fan of the di­rec­tor and was des­per­ate to work with him. he said: "I've been a fan of the di­rec­tor ever since I can re­mem­ber. "To even meet the man, let alone be in one of his films, was a dream come true. "The way he spoke about the film was like a child speak­ing about their fan­tasy. From that mo­ment on, I fell in love with it. I knew I needed to do it. "I re­ally wanted to prove to him I'd do what­ever it took." The 'Pa­per Towns' ac­tress doesn't want to limit her­self to par­tic­u­lar film gen­res and her only cri­te­ria when look­ing for parts is they are "strong" char­ac­ters. She said: "I've been lucky with the parts I've had. They're all strong fe­male char­ac­ters. It's very im­por­tant for me to be a role model for young girls. There isn't any limit in terms of what I want to do as an ac­tress. "I want to do some com­edy, scary movies, even mu­si­cals. I'm a big film buff. Any movie that comes my way I'd be happy to look at."
