SUSAN Boyle has signed up for acting lessons.
The singing star revealed yesterday (Fri) that she has even arranged an audition at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow.
SuBo has already appeared in a cameo role in ‘Rab C Nesbitt’ and says acting is something she has always wanted to do.
If she passes her audition she will be following in the footsteps of stars such as James McAvoy and Robert Carlyle.
SuBo told the Huffington Post in an exclusive interview with the online site: “Acting would be wonderful but alongside my singing career.
“It would not be full time and the lessons would be around my schedule but acting is something I do love doing and I think it gives you a little confidence as well.
“I like to try and perfect my arts and grow as a person so I think acting lessons will help me a lot.
“I’d love to act in another movie, that was great fun.”
Subo reveal that she also wanted to challenge herself musically.
She said: “To be honest I’d really like to work with songwriters in the future and create new music and change the direction I go in musically.
“I think for an artist to have longevity you need to adapt and change and I have proven with my tours that I can sing a host of different musical genres and I’d like the public to be able to see more of that.
“I’m not saying I’m going to reinvent myself in the way of Lady Gaga and come out in public in an egg but musically I want to progress.”
Susan said there were a number of artists she’d like to collaborate while trying her hand at acting: “Ed Sheeran because he is so talented at writing music that it would be great to work on an original piece of music together. I’d also love to do a duet or work with Coldplay. I think they are brilliant and Chris Martin again is so talented.
She described where she came from in Blackburn, West Lothian, helped keep her grounded as an artist.
She said: “My tried and tested method for coping is by staying in my home town of Blackburn with my friends and family around, there’s no diva behaviour allowed in Blackburn. These friends have been around me since I was young and I know their intentions are good and kind.
“I also like to take the bus and shop in Tesco’s and do all the normal things I did before ‘Britain’s Got Talent’.
“I want to pick out my own food and I like my free bus rides. When you’ve lived a life where money is tight for 47 years you’re not going to be too frivolous as you want to ensure it lasts.
“I don’t want to ever be in a situation again where I’m sitting in a dark cold house because I didn’t have enough money to pay the bills. Which is why I’ve gone the other way now. I have so much credit on the gas and electric I should be good for at least the next 20 years!
“My advice to anyone in the industry or starting out is keep your good friends around you and beware of those ‘yes people’. It’s ok to be told No!”
