Is Cressida Bonas On Her Way To Hollywood?

As plan B's go, Cressida Bonas' isn't too bad.

Having split from Prince Harry in April 2014, she is now set for more fame. In Hollywood.


And who better to propel her into the world of movie stardom than film producer Harvey Weinstein? (He's the man behind cult movies Shakespeare in Love, Pulp Fiction and The Kings Speech.)

Weinstein described 25-year-old Cressida as a "fantastic" actress at the BAFTA screening of Big Eyes in London, the Evening Standard reports.

Dismissing her royal connections, he added, "She is really hard-working and not taking any advantage of media profile. It will be the first of many roles for her."


So, when can we see Cressida on the silver screen?

Cressida will make her film debut alongside Cara Delevingne, Daisy Lowe and Dame Judi Dench in Weinstein's Tulip Fever, set for release later this year.

The 17th Century romance is an adaption of Deborah Moggach's novel, and tells the tale of an artist who falls for a young married woman when he is commissioned to paint her portrait.

As Weinstein rarely gets it wrong in the film industry - he was credited for launching Gwyneth Paltrow's career with Shakespeare in Love after all - this could be the beginning of a very different life for Prince Harry's ex-girlfriend.
