Cara Delevingne is set to star as Selena Gomez’s on-screen love interest in Only Murders in the Building.
The model-turned-actress will play the part of art gallery owner Alice in season two of the hit mystery comedy series, and John Hoffman – the show’s co-creator – has hailed their connection on set.
He described their on-screen chemistry as ‘sparky in all the rights ways’ as he reflected on their performance.
‘It was amazing to have the two of them know each other and feel comfortable,’ he told Vanity Fair.
‘It’s a little sparky in all the right ways that makes you feel like, “Oh, someone’s opening someone’s world.” ‘
John also explained that Alice will help Mabel – Selena’s character, which she is reprising from the first series – to get ‘in touch with a side of herself she’s been somewhat neglecting since the show began’.
Meanwhile, Amy Schumer is set to play a ‘slightly unbearable version of herself’ who has just moved into the Arconia.
Last year, Selena, 29, admitted she loved working with longtime friend Cara, AGE, on Only Murders in the Building.
She said at the time: ‘We just did our first day together yesterday … It’s so fun. We were just dying and laughing most of the time because we just know each other so well.’
Selena also stars in the series alongside Steve Martin and Martin Short, and the actress has loved the experience of working with them.
She added: ‘They immediately made me feel like I was a part of a trio. They’re just the best. They are extremely humble and kind, and they just have a different human perspective on life than anyone I’ve ever met.
‘I asked them about how life used to be, and it was always so interesting to hear about the industry and what it used to be like. I felt like a sponge, just absorbing everything I could. We’re all on a group e-mail chain.’
Only Murders in the Building returns to Disney+ on June 28.
