Entitled Timeless, the series will be broadcast from mid-June this year and will star Cara as a young woman whose soldier fiancé is serving in Afghanistan, bringing challenging times and a closer bond with her great grandmother, played by celebrated British actress Sylvia Syms.

"It's a really touching story and I'm really honoured to be working with Sylvia in a one-off production for Playhouse Presents," Delevingne told Vogue. "This will be my first time working in television drama and I am excited by the opportunity." Cara won't be the only big-name star to appear in Timeless; she'll act alongside Friends' Matthew Perry, Cloud Atlas' Ben Whishaw and Amadeus' Simon Callow.

The model and It girl has spoken about her love of acting before and has said that she'd prefer to be an actress. She landed her first film role as a minor character in Michael Winterbottom's adaptation of the Amanda Knox murder trial Face of an Angel. Speaking from the set in January, Cara spoke of her dreams: "Modelling is a great job, and I appreciate everything it has brought me, but it's not my passion. As far back as I can remember I have wanted to act," via The Telegraph.

Timeless will debut on the 19th June 2014.
