David Gandy is set to make his long-awaited transition into acting.

David Gandy, the world’s highest-paid male model, is about to make his film debut, Mandrake can disclose.

“I’ve just done a short film with Helena Christensen,” he tells me. “I can’t say anything more about it. I’ve probably said too much as it is.”

It would, alas, appear that Gandy is not alluding to the title role in the much-talked-about film Mandrake the Magician, although readers would doubtless say that he is sufficiently good-looking.

The 30-year-old Essex-born model has also occasionally been talked about as a possible successor to Daniel Craig in the role of James Bond. He laughs when I ask him about the stories.

“That would be a dream come true,” he says.
