Remember Cressida Bonas, the girl who didn’t marry Harry? The royal ex was routinely loosely described in the media as an aspiring actress slash model and seems her career is finally getting the kick start it needed after Mulberry announced the 25-year-old would be starring in their next campaign.
Fashionista.com reports the short film will feature Bonas dancing – she studied dance at Leeds University – and will also star English actor Freddie Fox, who has been romantically connected to Bonas in the press.
The fact that Bonas will be joining pal Cara Delevinge at Mulberry makes the appointment almost as incestuous as the royal family. Both models attended the Mulberry Golden Globes BAFTA Tea Party with Keira Knightley and Allan Leech and Laura Carmichael of Downton Abbey also in attendance.
The Daily Mail reports Bonas landed the part due to a video of her dancing from before she graduated from Leeds, however we’re pretty sure the Harry connection came in handy. Next up for Cressida is a small role in upcoming Brit flick Tulip Fever.
