Cara Delevingne admits she was shocked by her own acting ability after she shot her leading role in the thriller 'The Face of an Angel.'

Cara Delevingne "found out" she could act after she landed the lead role in 'The Face of an Angel.'

The 21-year-old model plays Daniel Brühl's love interest Melanie in the psychological thriller, which is directed by Michael Winterbottom, and she admits she was left stunned by her own acting ability.

Speaking to the Evening Standard at the movie's world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival, she said: "It [shooting the movie] was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. I learnt so much just because I found out a lot about myself.

"I found out that I could act, that I could do it confidently and not be nervous and die because usually I think I'm going to die doing things that scare me! I went in so terrified and nervous but I got so much good advice from Michael and Daniel. We just made a family."

The movie, which is based on Amanda Knox who was accused of the murder of her flatmate Meredith Kercher in 2007, also features actress Kate Beckinsale, 41, as journalist Simone Ford.

The blonde beauty had nothing but praise for Delevingne and believes her "funny and silly" attitude on set made filming a lot more fun.

She explained: "I love Cara. She's an absolute character and really serious about acting. She's incredibly humble, funny and silly. Completely insane. Absolutely my type of girl!"

Thomas (Brühl), a slightly washed-up filmmaker, arrives in Italy to cover a lurid murder story (loosely based by Winterbottom on the case of Meredith Kercher) but gets distracted. It’s very good on the rapacious media coverage, less so when Thomas becomes obsessed with Dante and starts hallucinating; ultimately, a mixed…
