SuBo to make movie debut at Xmas

Susan Boyle said making the film is a great experience

Susan Boyle is to make her acting debut in period film The Christmas Candle.

The Britain's Got Talent star will appear opposite Les Miserables' Samantha Barks in the film, which is based on a book by US preacher and author Max Lucado and is set in an 1890s English village where blessed candles answer people's prayers.

SuBo, who is currently filming on location in the Isle of Man, told the BBC: "It's very cold filming on location, I'm wearing long johns under my bustle."

"Everyone on set is a delight to work with and it's a fantastic experience to be part of the team," she added.

The film also stars former Doctor Who Sylvester McCoy and Scottish actor John Hannah.

It is not known what role Susan will play.

If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
