Lily Rose Depp will star in French film Planetarium
Get ready to hear – and see – the name Lily Rose Depp a whole lot more, because the daughter of legendary actor Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis has just landed a major film role. And something tells us the offers are going to be coming in thick and fast from now on in.
Lily Rose Depp will be starring opposite Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman as the Black Swam star's sister in new French film, Planetarium.
Set in the 1930s, the film follows the lives of the two sisters 'who are believed to possess the supernatural ability to connect with ghosts. They cross paths with a visionary French prodcuer while performing in Paris.'
Natalie is said to be brushing up on her French for the role, but for Lily Rose – whose mother is French and who has lived in France – the language thing will be a breeze.
And we've got to hand it to the casting directors – Depp and Portman certainly look alike. Especially when you look at a picture from when Natalie was a similar age to Lily Rose in 1994 film Leon. Not only do they have similar hairstyles and matching doe eyes, but thanks to the ongoing 90s revival, Lily Rose has a similar wardrobe to the teenage Portman too.
While this will be Lily Rose's first major acting role, the 15-year-old has already made a name for herself in the fashion world thanks, in large part, to her stream of stylish photos on Instagram. We're rarely envious of teenagers (too many hormones and school dramas), but Lily Rose does have dreamy hair. And that face: wow. Plus, how many teenagers get to hang out on the Chanel front row? It's a far cry from hanging around the shopping mall with a McFlurry, that's for sure.
It looks like the red carpet just got a new star...
