Cape Town - With her wide blue eyes and flowing blonde hair, Toni Garrn certainly looks like Reeva Steenkamp.

The German Victoria’s Secret model plays Oscar Pistorius slain girlfriend in a new Lifetime movie about the saga, Oscar Pistorius: Blade Runner Killer.

The made-for-TV movie by the US channel will tell the story from Reeva and her mother June’s perspective, according to Deadline.

The former Paralympian is currently serving a six-year jail sentence for the Valentine’s Day killing.

Hamburg-born model Toni (25) has appeared on the catwalk for the likes of Calvin Klein, Stella McCartney, Dior, Louis Vuitton, and Chanel – and while she had a supporting role in Lifetime thriller Under the Bed, it appears Oscar Pistorius: Blade Runner Killer is Toni’s first lead role in a film.

The blonde beauty is no stranger to the limelight, however – and she’s been Leonardo DiCaprio’s (42) on-again, off-again Victoria’s Secret model of choice for several months.

According to MailOnline, Toni and the Titanic star, who is almost 20 years her senior, dated for 18 months, from May 2013 to December 2014.

But rumour has it the genetically blessed duo may have rekindled their romance in recent weeks.

TMZ reports Toni and Leo were spotted having dinner at the North End Grill in New York on 21 September, before enjoying “a romantic bike ride to her place”.

Earlier this year, the former couple were reportedly seen leaving 1Oak nightclub hand-in-hand in the early hours of the morning.

However, a source close to the actor told MailOnline Leo is currently single.  

Oscar Pistorius: Blade Runner Killer will premiere in the US on 11 November, but a South African release date has not yet been announced.
