Tulisa 'could have a film career'

Tulisa Contostavlos impressed the Demons Never Die director

Tulisa Contostavlos has great potential for an acting career, according to Arjun Rose - who directed her debut acting role.

The X Factor judge appears in British horror film Demons Never Die and the director said she was "captivating" on screen, even though she had never acted before.

Arjun said: "She was amazing. She has this star quality. She was in this small room to start with and there was a group of crew and everyone was quite excited to have her there and when she started she was just totally captivating

"So I think she's got a great potential career, should she choose to, in the acting world."

The director added casting the N-Dubz star in the role inspired by Drew Barrymore's cameo in Scream turned out to be quite easy.

"Funnily I just said 'Look, I really want Tulisa to play this role', which was kind of a homage to Wes Craven's Barrymore.

"And we made the phone calls and she came back to me and said 'Can I have a slightly bigger part'. I said yes, rewrote it and gave it back to her and she said 'Yes I want to do it', and that was it."

The film, released on October 28, was produced by Luther star Idris Elba.

He said: "Tulisa does a really good job. As I've been telling everyone - she kills it!"

A colleague who takes great pleasure in making everyone feel miserable should be reprimanded. Make it clear you aren't the only person who is suffering from their abuse. Explain how this bully is ruining morale. It's a system wide problem that needs to be nipped in the bud.More
