Zayn Malik is renowned for his pop songs, but former One Direction star Zayn Malik thinks he is now ready to make waves as an actor.
The singer just shot a mini-film for his new single Let Me and feels as if he is ready to make an acting debut.
Speaking to Manchester radio station Key 103 on Saturday, he said: “I’d be interested in doing some acting. It’s always been something that I liked doing, even when I was growing up. I did a few school performances.”
Zayn admits that “I’m an Oscar-level actor right now” but thinks that with a few classes, “I can learn things and pick it up.”
Could he be inspired by his ex-bandmate Harry Styles, who made a critically-acclaimed acting debut in Dunkirk last year?
“I think my confidence has grown in the last year and a half. Just working on a lot of personal issues with just me, leaving the band and not really knowing what was going on for a while,” Zayn said about his change of heart.
“I was just putting out a record and not really being as prominent as I wanted to be. But this time around I feel like I am more confident and I really believe in what’s going on, so I want to convey that to my fans.”
