PHIL COLLINS has a burning ambition to play a serial killer on the big screen - but his only chance to fulfil his dream was scuppered by his wife.
The former Genesis rocker has enjoyed several movie roles, including a cameo appearance in Hook and the lead role as Great Train Robber Buster Edwards in 1988 film Buster.
As his movie career developed, he received an offer to play Russian serial killer Andrei Chikatilo - but his wife at the time, Orianne Cevey, refused to let him accept the role.
Collins tells Q magazine, "I get sent a script from HBO. There was a Russian serial killer who killed and cannibalised 50-odd kids. As soon as I got the script, I thought, 'I've got to play this guy!' But my wife wouldn't let me do it. She was probably right. I had the face that would get me the part. Rather than the romantic lead."
