Ed Sheeran plots "gritty" film roles

Ed Sheeran has hinted that he would like to try acting.

The singer-songwriter told The Sun that he might be interested in stepping out of music for a moment and trying his hand at cinema.

However, he reckons that a "gritty" role would be best as it would dispel his "clean cut" and "smiley" persona. Speaking about acting, Sheeran said:

"If I ever did anything, I'd love to do something like Skagboys, a gritty Brit flick. Because I'm a bit clean cut and a bit smiley, it would be good to do something very out of the ordinary."

Sheeran added that whilst he did theatre when he was a teenager, he isn't so sure on his acting abilities. He said:

"I did National Youth Theatre when I was 16. I can hold a tune but my acting is not quite up to the same standard yet."
