Former 1D star Zayn Malik is almost always in the news, most prominently for his music singles - his debut single ‘Pillowtalk’ was a smashing hit - and his relationship with Gigi Hadid, which ended earlier this year. He’s also been a favourite on the fashion pages for his brooding rock star style. It now appears that Zayn is ready to add another feather in is cap; he wants to try his hand at acting.
“I’d be interested in doing some acting,” he said in a recent interview. “It’s always been something that I liked doing, even when I was growing up. I did a few school performances and stuff. I’m not saying I’m Oscar-level winning actor right now, but I’m sure I can go to a few classes and learn things and pick it up. It’s definitely something I’m interested in.”
The 25-year-old singer says that if an opportunity presented itself to branch out then he would definitely take it; he even showed his acting potential in the steamy music video for his new single ‘Let Me’, where he portrays a man wrapped up in the world of crime. As for his music, he’s wrapped up in his second album these days.
“There’s always a lot of pressure around the second album,” he said in the interview. “But I’m just excited. I feel like the song’s good, I’ve got more good songs to come. It’s a good project and I’m proud to be a part of it.”
