Alexandra Burke is broadening her horizons and may be coming to a screen near you. The Elephant singer revealed in a recent interview with the Daily Star that she has been taking acting classes and wants to star in a film.

I’ve been having acting lessons, so that’s an area I’d love to try soon.

But she’s not done with music just yet, Burke added

I’m so proud of Adele and One Direction’s US success and I’m hoping I can be another Brit who goes over there and fights for the dream

Following the snub from Radio 1 and Global Radio group, we think it’s best Aburke focuses on maintaining relevance in the UK before she does a runner to the states.
