WATCH Lily Cole in The Imaginarium Of Dr Parnassus

11 August 2009

For a model to make that transformation from the catwalk to the big screen is sometimes a bit of a challenge. (Think Naomi Campbell in Bollywood's Karma, Confessions And Holi, for example). But when we caught a sneak preview of Lily Cole in The Imaginarium Of Dr Parnassus last month, we knew the flame-haired model had made it work. She plays Valentina, one of the members of a travelling theatre group who live out their fantasies when they jump through a mirror that takes them into a land of their desires. Featuring Heath Ledger, Johnny Depp and Colin Farrell, Terry Gilliam's film is part dreamy and part disturbing. But though it's patchy in places, Lily Cole totally steals the show. She's ridiculously good considering it's her first major film role – so convincing you literally can't keep your eyes off her. (OK, her beauty probably doesn't hurt either). Innocent at times, when she dresses up as a showgirl she's beyond sexy. Alright, we'll stop gushing now. Because since the official trailer has just been released, you can finally see for yourself how brilliant Lily is in the few flashes you glimpse here. (PS: We also love her Valentina costume). The film is released on 16th October.
