AceShowbiz - Cara Delevingne will play Selena Gomez's on-screen love interest on "Only Murders in the Building". The model-turned-actress will play the part of art-gallery owner Alice in season two of the mystery-comedy series, and the hit show's co-creator John Hoffman has hailed their connection on set.
"It was amazing to have the two of them know each other and feel comfortable," John told Vanity Fair magazine when speaking about Cara and Selena's on-screen chemistry. "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, to get "in touch with a side of herself she's been somewhat neglecting since the show began."
In 2021, meanwhile, Selena admitted she loved working with Cara on "Only Murders in the Building". The 29-year-old beauty starred in season one of the show, and she relished appearing alongside her long-time friend in season two.
"We just did our first day together yesterday … It's so fun," she said. "We were just dying and laughing most of the time because we just know each other so well."
Selena also stars on the series alongside Steve Martin and Martin Short, and the actress has loved the experience of working with them. She shared, "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," she added. "I felt like a sponge, just absorbing everything I could. We're all on a group e-mail chain."
