Cole wants to play Disney's Mulan

Lily Cole shows off her acting skills in Snow White And The Huntsman

Lily Cole has revealed that she would love to play Mulan on screen.

The English model-turned-actress is a big fan of the Disney heroine, and would like the opportunity to portray her if a real-life version of the film was made.

"I love Mulan. She's such an awesome character. Mulan is so kick-a** - she pretends to be a man and saves China, so I'd be up for that," she said.

Lily - who appears in Snow White And The Huntsman alongside Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart - admitted seeing herself age on screen was a "surreal" experience.

"It was wicked to make that character transition. It was really cool and I was really up for it," she said.

"It took about seven hours each day to do the prosthetics. It was really surreal to look at yourself in the mirror and see how you would age, although I don't think it's a realistic depiction of what I'll look like when I'm older, because it's so old - I don't know if I'll make it that far!

"It was a really mind-expanding or disturbing experience to see myself like that," she added.

Chris Hemsworth, Ray Winstone and Sam Claflin also star in Snow White And The Huntsman, which is in cinemas now.
