Myra McQueen's dramatic exit

Nicole Barber-Lane wants to swap 'Hollyoaks' for Hollywood and give Angelina Jolie a "run for her money" after filming her last scenes on the Channel 4 soap

Nicole Barber-Lane wants to give Angelina Jolie a "run for her money" on the big screen.

The actress is keen to swap 'Hollyoaks' for Hollywood after filming her dramatic final scenes as Myra McQueen in the Channel 4 soap, and admits she is keen to take on some of the action roles which have done well for the brunette beauty, such as Lara Croft in 'Tomb Raider', if they came around again.

Nicole - who is married to 'Emmerdale' star Liam Fox - exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "If 'Tomb Raider' was offered to me I would definitely do it, yeah. I'd give Angelina a run for her money!

"I'm not sure if me and Liam could be the next Brangelina though. I don't even want to imagine that!"

The brunette star bows out of the show in dramatic style when her alter-ego is shot by her evil son-in-law Dr. Browning (Joseph Thompson), and Nicole admits getting a little teary when she thinks about leaving the soap after seven years of playing Myra.

She added: "I've got a little bit emotional when I think about how lucky I've been and how grateful I've been to [Executive Producer] Bryan Kirkwood for giving me such a fantastic exit, and then when I think about all the people who have worked there.

"I get emotional when I think about it so I've tried not to think about it."
