One Direction star Harry Styles' ex-girlfriend Millie Brady has landed a major new U.S. Tv role in a reimagining of 1986 movie The Clan Of The Cave Bear.

The former model has landed the role of Ayla, the part Daryl Hannah played in the original, according to Deadline.com.

The adaptation of Jean Auel's novel will follow the exploits of a homeless Cro-Magnon, who is adopted by a group of Neanderthals.

Brady will next be seen in Burr Steers' Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, in which she portrays Mary Bennet.
