Life is a Cara beret! Model Cara Delevingne will make her West End debut in the role of Liza Minnelli

She's used to walking the runway — and now Cara Delevingne is ready to hit the runways.

The 31-year-old model is about to make her West End debut in the hit production Cabaret.

She takes on the role of Sally Bowles – made famous by Liza Minnelli in the 1972 film adaptation – during a 12-week run at the Playhouse Theater starting next month.

But it appears Ms Delevingne is getting used to the intensity of stage acting as she will miss 22 of 96 performances. Her understudy, Nic Myers, will play the role once a week.

Ms Delevingne, who will follow in the footsteps of Oscar nominee Jessie Buckley in the role, will play the host alongside Olivier Award-winning actor Luke Treadaway.

She has already made a name for herself in the acting world by appearing in films such as Anna Karenina, Paper Towns, Suicide Squad and Tulip Fever.

She also made cameo appearances in the US television shows Only Murders In The Building and American Horror Story.

Speaking about her exciting new job, Cara said: “There are no words to describe the excitement I feel to return home to make my stage debut in such an iconic role.”

“I am so inspired by the brilliant actors who have played Sally in previous productions around the world and in this one in the West End.”

“I can’t wait to be part of this brilliant cast and production.”

Luke added: “I can't wait to become a member of the Kit Kat Club and take part in this extraordinary production.” “It's a great pleasure to be asked to take on this role and I'm really looking forward to it to start.”

Eddie Redmayne, who starred in the classic musical in 2021, previously raved about the amazing production while appearing as The Emcee in Cabaret.

He shared: “Being able to perform the extraordinary piece by John Kander, Fred Ebb and Joe Masteroff with a stunning troupe at the Kit Kat Club in the heart of London was the stuff dreams are made of.”

He added: “Playing this role in Cabaret was one of the few things I've put on my bucket list in my life.” And I don't have many.

“The process of putting this piece together took six years and it is so exciting when something you dreamed of exceeds your expectations.”
