James Bay has revealed he is interested in taking up acting after enjoying the process of making his latest music videos from his second album, 'Electric Light'
James Bay is "curious" about venturing into acting.
The 'Us' hitmaker got to test out his performance skills in the music videos for the songs on his second LP, 'Electric Light', and even got to star alongside 'Stranger Things' star Natalia Dyer for his 'Wild Love' promo earlier this year.
The 27-year-old singer/songwriter says it has inspired him to think about taking up acting in the future, though he has reassured fans that music will always be his main occupation.
He told the Daily Star newspaper: "I never really enjoyed making music videos with the first album but with this one I've had a lot more fun, and there is some acting involved, so I wonder as I carry on making music videos whether I will warm to that any more.
"I am curious what direction it'll take me but music will be at the absolute heart of what I do.
"I Need a lot more practice before I can decide if I'm any good."
The 'Hold Back The River' hitmaker previously confessed he held back being a fan boy over Natalia in 'Wild Love'.
James is a massive fan of the Netflix drama, which sees the 21-year-old beauty portray Nancy, and in the promo the pair can be seen staring longingly into one another's eyes as they move around animated swarms of purple butterflies.
On working with the American actress, James said previously: "It was such a pleasure to work with Natalia on the 'Wild Love' set.
"She's a lovely person, a huge talent and it was great hanging with her while making this video.
"I'm a massive 'Stranger Things' fan so I tried everything in my power not to fan boy too hard."
