Zayn Malik eyes theatre role

Los Angeles, June 6 (IANS) Singer Zayn Malik reportedly wants a role in the Old Vic Theatre’s “24 Hour Plays” series, staged in the autumn.

The 22-year-old singer, who quit British boyband One Direction in March this year, is keen to try his hand at stage acting during the series.

“Everyone expects Zayn to go a certain way now he has quit One Direction but his people are already talking with organisers of the ’24 Hour Plays’ to get him involved.

“They want him to make a cameo, which won’t require much acting but will see him in a grown-up light among some great A-list company. They also want to maintain his profile in America,” a source told

It is not the first time Malik has considered moving into acting after “Bend It Like Beckham” director Gurinder Chadha previously revealed he had spoken to her about starring in a movie.

She had said: “We’ve met and spoken. He trained as an actor first then became part of the band. So I think what he’ll be doing is staying true to his heart – and that’s all you can ever do.”
