Model Irina Shayk is set to make her acting debut opposite Dwayne Johnson in Hercules.

The Sports Illustrated cover girl was forced to back out of auditioning for the chance to walk the runway at the 2013 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, so she can start shooting scenes as the Greek demigod's wife, according to the New York Post.

Brett Ratner is directing the film, which is due out in July (14).
