British R&B star Lemar has put plans for a movie career into action - he's already scored a string of auditions in Hollywood.
The Dance (With U) hitmaker admits he's barely had time to indulge his passion for acting, as he's been so busy recording new tracks.
But he's been meeting with casting agents in Los Angeles, and he's hopeful his new career will eventually flourish when he finds the right role.
He says, "Music takes up so much time when you are recording, but I do love the acting side of things. When I was in L.A., I looked into it a bit more and went to a few castings. I'd probably play a bad guy because I do a good mean face, better than a nice face. A really wicked villain would allow me to explore my dark side."
