Susan Boyle Launches TV Acting Career
Scottish singer Susan Boyle is going to be expanding her entertainment CV to include acting after landing a role in a new TV drama.
The former Britain's Got Talent star, who cancelled her gig in Abu Dhabi last year, made her acting debut as a church warden's wife in 2013 festive movie The Christmas Candle, and now she's heading to the small screen in an upcoming UK series, provisionally titled Diva.
Boyle, 52, filmed her role as a lighthouse keeper's wife in the pilot episode last month, according to The Sun on Sunday newspaper.
The singer's agent told the publication Boyle is "very excited" about the show, about a young girl from Britain's Channel Islands who dreams of becoming a star.
