Supermodel Daisy Lowe To Make Screen Debut Opposite 'Game Of Thrones' Star Alfie Allen In Brit Thriller 'Confine'

The track record of supermodels making their way on to the big screen is not a particularly strong one. Cindy Crawford in "Fair Game?" Not so much. Gisele Bundchen in "Taxi?" No thank you. Heidi Klum in "Ella Enchanted?" Let's move on, please. Nevertheless, they keep trying, particularly so in the current generation. Lily Cole, for example, has actually had more success than most, with roles in films like "The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus" and the upcoming "Snow White And The Huntsman." And now, one of Cole's catwalk colleagues is dipping her toes into acting waters.

The track record of supermodels making their way on to the big screen is not a particularly strong one. Cindy Crawford in "Fair Game?" Not so much. Gisele Bundchen in "Taxi?" No thank you. Heidi Klum in "Ella Enchanted?" Let's move on, please. Nevertheless, they keep trying, particularly so in the current generation. Lily Cole, for example, has actually had more success than most, with roles in films like "The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus" and the upcoming "Snow White And The Huntsman." And now, one of Cole's catwalk colleagues is dipping her toes into acting waters.

Screen Daily report that model Daisy Lowe, who has been a magazine fixture since she was 17, will make her major acting debut in the British thriller "Confine," which begins filming next month. In the directorial debut of Tobias Tobbell, who produced the well-regarded 2010 indie "The Drummond Will," Lowe will take the lead role alongside rising stars Alfie Allen (brother of pop star Lily Allen, and star of "Atonement" and "Game of Thrones") and Eliza Bennett (the lead in "Inkheart").

The model, who previously appeared in "The First Days Of Spring," a feature-length film tied to the Noah & The Whale album of the same name, will play a disfigured former model taken hostage by a sociopathic con artist (Bennett) and her boyfriend (Allen), which sparks off an unlikely friendship. This could go either way: a low-rent straight-to-video curio or the next "Disappearance Of Alice Creed" -- filming gets underway in early February, so we'll probably see how it turns out early in 2013.
