While watching an episode of Tidelands I paid attention to ''What of her?'' . Can anyone explain me the difference between ''what about her'' and ''what of her''? is it gramatically correct? In what regions is this phrase used?

so here is part of a dialogoue: A)-Cal McTeer B -what of her? A-I want you to seduce her


To my ear (British English speaker) they mean the same. What of her? sounds old fashioned or literary to me.
