Paloma Faith - Paloma Faith Wants Quirky Acting Career

Subscribe to Paloma Faith alerts

Paloma Faith wants to be a ''quirky'' actress.

The 26-year-old singer - who made appearances in 'The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus' and 'St. Trinians' - would resort to film work if her music career didn't work out, but she admits she would need some extra lessons first.

She said: ''I'd moonlight as an actress, in Christina Ricci's roles if I wasn't a musician. I'd like to be an actress. That would be my Plan B. I'd want to be cast in the sort of roles that Christina Ricci gets - quirky, Avant garde and a little bit disjointed.

''I really loved her in 'Buffalo '66' and 'Monster'. I'd probably have to look into theatre school first, though.''

However Paloma would not find it too hard to enter the world of acting, as she used to play a lot of make-believe as a child.

She said: ''When I was a child, I used to eat my dinner on the Pavement outside our house in London.

''We didn't have a garden and there wasn't a lot of green space so my mum would put out a little table and tablecloth out on the pavement and pretend it was a restaurant. A little imagination goes a long way!''
