Angela Griffin is desperate to play a soldier in a TV drama.
The 36-year-old actress - who has portrayed a hairdresser in 'Coronation Street', a beautician in 'Cutting It' and a teacher in 'Waterloo Road' - is keen to portray a woman with a gun in an action role because it would be completely different to what she is used to.
She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "The job that I'm kind of scouting for at the moment ... I've played teachers, I've played nurses, I've played beauticians ... is to be a soldier, a woman with a gun. I want to be an action Jackson person. I want to run around.
"I just really fancy it, I really want to do an action role, it's something I've never done, it's stuff that I really like watching. I love, love, love a little bit of special effects and things blowing up and stuff. I quite like that TV where it's done very well. And, so, I would quite like to be in something like that."
While Angela is keen to extend her acting career, the brunette beauty isn't interested in following in the footsteps of her friend Amanda Holden and become a judge on 'Britain's Got Talent' because she wouldn't have a clue about judging talent unlike the "multi-talented" 41-year-old star.
She added: "'Britain's Got Talent' is one of her favourite jobs, she absolutely loves it, and I have mucho pride for her on that show. It's not something I could do. She's like this proper multi-talented tap-dancing, singing, acting, proper all-rounder, she is a West End lady. I'm not at all, I can't sit down and judge people on that kind of stuff, I've not got a clue."
'Cutting It' airs weeknights on CBS Drama at 22:00.
