“Honestly, fashion really f*cked me when it came to acting. When I did my first film – Anna Karenina, which I didn’t have a speaking part in – every time I was on screen, the director (Joe Wright) would come up to me and say, ‘Cara, you’re modelling again. Stop trying to look pretty.’ I was an extra with 60 other people on screen at the time. I was like, ‘But what do you mean?’ And he’d tell me, ‘You’re not in the moment, you’re just trying to look hot.’ I never thought I did that. Modelling makes you know where the camera is at all times, and you have to forget that when you’re acting.” – Delevingne on fashion / acting.
“It is a neo-Victorian-esque fantasy world and I play a bisexual fairy. It’s a discussion about immigration and the refugee crisis set in a fantasy world. It’s a lot of different storylines and a lot of different characters and creatures. It’s made for geeks and fanatics and people who like to go into the depths of another world. To be honest, if I didn’t have the script to read, I’m not sure I would have understood it all from the start. ” – Delevingne on her new series, Carnival Row.
