Cara Delevingne acted like a real animal to get the role of interplanetary special-ops agent Laureline in Luc Besson’s eye-candy spectacular Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.
If you’re expecting a story about a spoiled model-turned-actor throwing a tantrum to get a super-fun part in one of the summer’s biggest sci-fi films, you’re going to be disappointed. But the real story’s pretty good too.
It’s about Delevingne’s unconventional audition with the visionary French director Besson (Leon: The Professional, The Fifth Element), who was finally set to make a big-screen version of his favourite childhood comic book, Valérian and Laureline, by French writer Pierre Christin.
