Cressida Bonas earns rave reviews from critics

Cressida Bonas has been earning rave reviews for her role in 'An Evening With Lucien Freud'.

The 26-year-old actress - the ex-girlfriend of Britain's Prince Harry - stars in the role of Laura in the play, which opened in London on Tuesday night (26.05.15), and her performance has been widely praised by critics of the 65-minute show.

The play tells the story of a student's relationship with acclaimed painter Lucian Freud and is currently being staged at the Leicester Square Theatre.

Since splitting from the 30-year-old prince, Cressida's career as an actress and model has gathered pace, with the blonde beauty securing roles in a number of high-profile plays and movies, including a part alongside Cara Delevingne and Alicia Vikander in the upcoming period drama 'Tulip Fever'.

However, Cressida recently confessed she has to be "careful" of people trying to exploit her association with Prince Harry.

The actress admitted there's a danger people will show an interest in her simply because of her fame, rather than her talent.

She said: "I do have to be careful. But I have good intuition and great friends. They wouldn't let me make such mistakes."
