As of right now, Harry Styles is the only member of One Direction who has starred in movies — but we’re holding out hope that Zayn Malik will follow suit! While the “Dusk Till Dawn” singer seems to be predominately focusing on music at the moment, we can’t forget about the time he met with film director Gurinder Chadha to discuss his acting career. According to the movie mogul, Zayn showed serious interest in becoming an actor.
“We’ve met and spoken. He trained as an actor first then became part of the band,” Gurinder said. “I think what he’ll be doing is staying true to his heart — and that’s all you can ever do. I don’t have a part in mind for Zayn just yet but hopefully in the future.”
Uh, can the “future” be now? We’d kill to see the singer on the big screen! Rumors started swirling last year that Zayn was working on a TV project called Boys for NBC, and the former 1D guy even released a statement confirming the news. Unfortunately, no further info has been released since then, and it looks like the project may be scrapped — though hopefully it’s just still a work in progress!
“I started acting when I was in school with theatre studies and then music came after,” Zayn has said in an interview. “It completely stopped when I joined the band but I’d definitely be interested if I was given the right role.”
The idea of Zayn being on our screens is seriously so exciting! So, just to see what he’d look like on movie posters and DVD covers, we Photoshopped him into some of our favorite Halloween movies — ’tis the season, after all! Check out the gallery below so see the singer in your classic Halloween faves.
