Faithfull: I want more funny roles

Marianne Faithfull would love more comic acting roles

Marianne Faithfull has revealed she'd love to get more comic acting parts after a light-hearted turn in her latest film.

The singer, actress and sixties icon plays a housekeeper in the romantic drama Belle du Seigneur, which also stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers and model Natalia Vodianova.

"I loved it. I'm sort of funny (in it) too, which I love being," she said.

"Having a comic part was great. I haven't done many comic parts in the past and I think I'm quite good at it, I'd love to do more."

The film, due out next year, is an adaptation of Albert Cohen's French story of a love affair between a Jewish diplomat and a married Protestant woman on the eve of the Second World War.

"I loved it, I had a great time. It was Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who's great, and a really good actor, and Natalia Vodianova who's very beautiful and very good," Marianne said.

She added: "Music is my life, that's what's kept me alive and kept me happy and it's very important. But I do love acting too."

:: Marianne's latest solo album, Horses And High Heels, is out now.

When the powers that be realise you mean business, they'll work hard to update the regulations. You'll make several new friends after getting involved with this cause.More
