She had barely a line in Anna Karenina, but Cara Delevingne looks like she'll be making quite impression in The Face Of An Angel.
The British model was spotted filming scenes for the Amanda Knox movie with co-star Daniel Brühl, and it looked she and him would be sharing a kiss.
With a smile on her face, Cara, 21, leans into the actor, which could potentially make it her first onscreen kiss.
In the film based on the murder case of Meredith Kerchner, Delevingne plays 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,’ she said.
Melanie meets a film-maker, Thomas (played by Brühl), 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.
‘There’s something about her that captivates him,’ Cara said. ‘It’s very innocent. He’s missing his daughter, and he’s taken by her.’
Melanie is taking an Italian cultural course, which suits Cara fine: ‘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 Thursday night, Daniel and Kate Beckinsale were busy filming for the film based on the book Angel Face by Barbie Latza Nadeau.
The 40-year-old actress wore her long glossy brown looks in loose waves around her shoulders, teamed with black coat, skinny jeans boots and bag in the picturesque city.
German-born Daniel, 35, wore a near identical ensemble, but teamed his black coat and trousers with black scarf tied around his neck to keep out the chilly temperatures.
The stars seemed focussed as they shot a night scene, although seemed happy to chat and relax in between takes.
The film documents the frenzy surrounding the case of murdered British student Meredith Kercher.
Thursday's filming was the latest shoot for the stars who were spotted in Tuscany last week shooting day scenes for the Michael Winterbottom directed film.
Kate was seen filming opposite two young actors playing the parts of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito who were accused in 2009 of of murdering Miss Kercher in 2007.
Kate’s role in the movie is based on CNN journalist Barbie Latza Nadeau’s book Angel Face: Sex, Murder and the Inside Story of Amanda Knox.
The Underworld actress has been busy shooting around Italy for the past three weeks and last Tuesday the cast and crew decamped to Tuscany to film some exterior shots.
It was busy day on set as scenes between the actors playing Knox and Sollecito were also seen being filmed.
In a re-enactment of the famous photographs of the then couple, the young actors were seen comforting each other as extras playing policeman and forensics experts search the house behind them.
Kate also thrown herself into the controversial project, even enlisting the expertise of journalist Latza Nadeau.
Whilst on a research trip in Rome, the actress was given a tour of the offices used by the reporter, who has also worked for the Daily Beast, at the foreign press association round the corner from the Trevi fountain.
The 47-year-old was one of the journalists who followed the case, pushing lawyers for quotes and access to court documents whilst filing copy from the cramped press room.
Latza Nadeau has said that the film based on her book will not be a direct retelling of the Kercher case, recently telling The Telegraph: 'There will be recognisable elements from the Kercher case but the film is more of a mirror of the events that went on in the background – the media frenzy surrounding the story.
The story sees Bruhl’s Thomas going through a mid-life crisis as he prepares to make a film about the murder of a British student in Tuscany.
‘There’s something about her that captivates him,’ Cara has said of her character. ‘It’s very innocent. He’s missing his daughter, and he’s taken by her.’
Knox and Sollecito were jailed for 26 years after being convicted of the murder of Meredith Kercher, who was stabbed to death after being sexually assaulted.
They were later acquitted, but this was overturned by the Italian Supreme Court.
