London, Dec 9 (IANS) British rocker Pete Doherty is now trying his hand in acting as he has landed the lead role in a French movie.
The 31-year-old singer has been expanding his repertoire away from the music industry and recently launched his own jewellery line, reports contactmusic.com.
Now Doherty is to make his film debut in an untitled project, alongside actress Charlotte Gainsbourg, based on the life of 19th century writer Alfred de Musset.
‘We start shooting in Paris on December 27. The story is a love triangle so it’s pretty intense and romantic. I don’t know if I’m a good actor but they say I am,’ he said.
