Nashville newcomer Chaley Rose has said how excited she is to be combine her two loves, acting and singing, with her role on the show.
The actress joins the new series of the Channel 4 show, starring Hayden Panettiere, as songwriter Scarlett O'Connor (Clare Bowen)'s childhood friend Zoey.
Chaley revealed: "When I was younger all I wanted to do was be a singer, and then I got into a great acting class in New York and became obsessed with that. So to book a job that uses them both is like the dream come true!"
She added: "When I first got there, I auditioned for the part on a Thursday and I was in Nashville on the Saturday and I was an emotional wreck because its the role of a lifetime. But everyone's been so welcoming and it's been really good. It's fun."
Chaley revealed Zoey is a bit of a wild child, and hinted she may be looking for romance with some of the other characters. But she wasn't sure if she'd lead Scarlett astray.
She said: "I think Scarlett is kind of the moral compass and Zoey is the one that's like, 'Come on, this is going to be fun!', so I think we balance each other in that way. I don't know what's going to happen, I think the writers are figuring that out at the same time as I am."
