Model Cara Delevingne is to make her TV drama debut later this year in the short film Timeless, which will be screened in the Playhouse Presents season on Sky Arts.

The Press Association says Delevingne stars opposite Sylvia Syms in the drama, playing a young woman who bonds with her great-grandmother (Syms) while her fiancé is serving in Afghanistan.

The model had a role in the 2012 film Anna Karenina and will also be seen in Michael Winterbottom's upcoming thriller The Face of an Angel.

Timeless will be shown on Sky Arts on June 19.
