Singer David Archuleta is hoping to step up his onscreen career by taking acting lessons.
The former American Idol star has played himself on U.S. children's show iCarly and now-defunct Miley Cyrus series Hannah Montana, but he is keen to improve his performance skills and has signed up for professional tuition.
In a post on his Twitter.com page on Monday (09Jan12), he writes, "Took an acting class for my first time today. Fun stuff haha."
He followed the message up with another on Tuesday (10Jan12), which read, "Another acting class today. It's actually pretty fun! I was nervous at first but I'm enjoying it now."
Archuleta recently announced plans to put his music career on hold to serve as a Mormon missionary.
