Cara Delevingne proves her performance power is only on the rise, as she signs up for a new television series with Sky Arts TV

Is there anything that Cara Delevingne can't do? It seems when it comes to performing perhaps not, as the reining queen of this season's catwalk shows has just signed up for a role on a new Sky Arts TV show called Timeless.

The 21-year-old will play a young woman whose fiancé is a soldier in Afghanistan, and star opposite Sylvia Syms – who plays her on-screen great grandmother.

"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 confirmed. "This will be my first time working in television drama and I am excited by the opportunity," she added.

Delevingne has previously starred in lavish big-screen period drama Anna Karenina and will appear later this year in The Face of an Angel - a film based on the Amanda Knox trial.
