Kylie found film set 'terrifying'

Kylie Minogue says going back to acting was scary

Kylie Minogue admits she realised she'd missed acting when her return to a film set "terrified her".

The queen of pop, who shot to fame in Neighbours, starred in the critically-acclaimed Franco-German fantasy movie Holy Motors last year.

"I found myself on set and I was totally thrilled and terrified by the experience," the singer said.

"It just triggered the button again and I thought, actually I do miss acting."

Kylie, who also appeared in films Street Fighter and Moulin Rouge! and enjoyed a cameo in Doctor Who, said that the Holy Motors role "reignited my desire" and that it led to her actively looking for acting work.

The actress now stars in Hey Diddly Dee, the Sky Arts drama which follows a group of actors rehearsing to put on a musical about the life of Andy Warhol.

""It just worked out that, luckily, I had three or four days available, so we were able to make it work. It was a great opportunity to work with the cast, do some comedy and play a scheming b****!" she said.

:: Hey Diddly Dee, part of the Playhouse Presents series, is on Sky Arts on Thursday, April 18.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Spending time on your own will be rewarding. You're an extremely conscientious person who is hyperaware of your surroundings. Sometimes this sensitivity can inhibit you from doing what you really want. You're afraid of offending people with your bold ideas. Instead of repressing your instincts, obey them. If you've developed a romantic interest in someone special, make your move. Playing the aggressor will boost your confidence. Keep your conversations light and playful.More
