Jamie Campbell Bower would love to be cast as a Sith in George Lucas' sci-fi franchise
Jamie Campbell Bower wants a part in 'Star Wars'.
The 'Twilight' star revealed he would "love" to appear in an instalment of the sci-fi saga and thinks his British accent would be well suited to portraying one of the franchise's antagonists.
He told the MailOnline: "I'd love to be a part of Star Wars. I'd be a Sith, of course, I'm English! We've got the voice and it's perfect for the bad guys."
The 25-year-old has already gained experience acting in fantasy flicks, including alongside Lily Collins in 'The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones', based on the book series by Cassandra Clare - in which he plays shadowhunter Jace Wayland.
Campbell Bower - who is a huge fan of the novels - is keen to reprise his role in the next instalment.
He said: "I've read all the books and the new one, 'City Of Heavenly Fire', too. If they asked me to do the next one I'd f**king love to."
Meanwhile, the multi-talented 'Sweeney Todd' actor recently returned from the US after playing two sell-out shows with his band The Darling Buds in Los Angeles and hopes to appear on the UK festival scene.
He said: "I just came back from LA where I've been playing with the band. We played two sold out shows there. I'd love to headline Reading and Leeds at some point."
