Singer Zayn Malik reportedly wants a role in the Old Vic Theatre’s 24 Hour Plays series, staged in the autumn.
The 22-year-old singer, who quit British boyband One Direction in March this year, is keen to try his hand at stage acting during the series.
“Everyone expects Zayn to go a certain way now he has quit One <g data-gr-id="13">Direction</g> but his people are already talking with organisers of the 24 Hour Plays to get him involved. They want him to make a cameo, which won’t require much acting but will see him in a grown-up light among some great A-list company. They also want to maintain his profile in America,” a source told mirror.co.uk.
It is not the first time Malik has considered moving into acting after Bend It Like Beckham director Gurinder Chadha previously revealed.
