Singer Dougie Poynter has reportedly been taking secret acting sessions in order to help him begin his career in the theatre industry.
The “McBusted” musician, 27, has had his sights set on theatre for a “long time” and has now finally plucked up the courage to venture away from his career in music after his girlfriend Ellie Goulding, 28, persuaded him to chase his dreams, reported Female First.
“Acting is something Dougie has considered for a long time. He has taken lessons to grasp the basics after Ellie told him to go for it,” a source said.
“There’s a big interest from agents as they think he can make a credible actor. He knows a career in music isn’t something that’ll last for ever,” the insider added.
