Delevingne, 21, stars as Chloe, a young woman who is separated from her soldier boyfriend, who is deployed in Afghanistan, in the upcoming Playhouse Presents TV play. The model will costar alongside Sylvia Syms in Tim Firth's drama about "the burgeoning relationship between a World War II widow and her great granddaughter."
"I worked years ago with a beautiful girl who became very famous," the 80-year-old said after the film's preview. "This child here has the same quality which is known as not acting for the camera. She is real and an absolute joy to work with. I was told I was going to work with a model and I had never heard of her but I literally fell in love with her on the first day. The other girl I loved was Audrey Hepburn."
