Cara Delevingne always keeps us on our toes and when she's not shocking us with her antics, she's impressing us with her crazy talent — and not just in the modeling world. The brazen Brit is starring in the made-for-television film Playhouse Presents: Timeless, and we're finally getting our first look at her acting chops.

In the 1-minute clip (below) the 21-year-old plays a young girl engaged to a soldier at war who's living with her grandmother. Earlier this year, her 80-year-old co-star compared her to Audrey Hepburnand thanks to this preview, we're beginning to understand why.
