Cressida Bonas is in talks to star in 'Downton Abbey'.
The ex-girlfriend of Britain's Prince Harry is a huge fan of the popular ITV show and has already met with creator Julian Fellowes to discuss a role.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Cressida is trying to break into Hollywood and knows a Downton role would do wonders for her profile, not only in the UK but also the US.
"She met Julian in the run-up to the Golden Globes.
"While it was a very informal chat, Julian was said to be hugely impressed with her.
"He even promised to set up a meeting with the show's casting director in the UK to talk about a possible cameo in the next season, which may lead to a more permanent role."
The talks comes shortly after the 25-year-old beauty was cast in the new Harvey Weinstein movie 'Tulip Fever', which also features the likes of Dame Judi Dench and Cara Delevingne.
Weinstein has claimed she'll go on to have a success acting career.
He said: "People will see what a fantastic actress she is. It will be the first of many roles for her."
