The glass shoe fits for Downton Abbey star Lily James - the Brit will play Cinderella in Kenneth Branagh's upcoming movie adaptation of the classic fairytale.

The 24 year old, who plays flighty Lady Rose MACClare on the hit period drama, has beaten out the likes of Emma Watson, Saoirse Ronan and Dark Shadows beauty Bella Heathcote for the part of the Disney princess in the live-action remake, which is set to be released in 2014.

Actress Cate Blanchett will portray her evil stepmother, while Game of Thrones hunk Richard Madden is in talks to play Prince Charming.

Branagh will start shooting in London later this year (13).
