Cara Delevingne 'Had to Prove Herself' During 'Valerian' Audition

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets stars Cara Delevingne and Dane DeHaan are on the cover of V107 Space Age issue!

Cara spoke about her audition for the film, doing stunts, and more. Here’s what she shared…

On first meeting with director Luc Besson about the film: “I didn’t know we were meeting about this movie. Even my agents didn’t know it was for this, and it was clear this was a top-secret project. I was just told, ‘Luc wants to have brunch,’ and I said, ‘Great, let’s do it.’ But when we met, he explained it all with such enthusiasm that it was clear he’d been trying to do this for so long and it was a passion project.”

On her audition: “I had to prove myself, but not in a typical audition setting. Luc would say stuff like, ‘Make up a story in your head and describe it to me using no real words, just physicality and random sounds you make up.’ Or, ‘Think of an animal and act it out and I have to guess what animal it is.’”

On doing her own stunts: “When I hear that there’s an option that I can do it instead of a stunt person, I’m always like, ‘Please let me do it! Throw me off the building, I like that!’”
