Sampson dreams of nightmare role

George Sampson has revealed he would like to try his hand at horror - thanks to a dream.

The 18-year-old, who reprises his alter-ego Eddie for StreetDance 2, fancies adding a thriller to his CV, following his appearances in Waterloo Road, Mount Pleasant and StreetDance.

"I've done bad boy now, at the moment I'm doing footballer [in Waterloo Road], and Eddie's just me. I might do a horror movie," he said.

"I had this weird, weird dream that I was in a horror movie. It was a cool dream!"

George - who won Britain's Got Talent in 2008 at the age of 14 - already knows which role he would be best suited for, adding: "I'd be the killer. Oh yeah! What fun is there in running and screaming? I'm not a very good screamer."

The Warrington-born street dancer revealed he is also branching out into music production.

"I'm really big into producing music at the moment. I have my own studio and I can sit in there from 4pm on Friday, make a song and next thing I know it's Monday morning at 3am. I lose track of time in there," he continued.

"I love making music, it's so fun. I'm making a lot of dubstep, some hip-hop. I've tried bits of pop but it just can't go through me. I can listen to it but making it is too cheesy so I've made a lot of dark stuff."

:: StreetDance 2 is in cinemas now.
