Actor Will Mellor has revealed he would love to play the role of an action hero, saying it's something he's always dreamed of doing

Will Mellor wants to play a soldier in his next acting role.

The 38-year-old - who is best known for his role in 'Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps' - revealed he's keen to realise his ambition of playing an acting hero before he becomes too old to play the part.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz, the former 'Hollyoaks' star explained: "I've always wanted to do something based around the army or war. I'd love to get all the gear on and get trained up. Give me a gun and send me out on set - I'd love it!"

Will continued: "I'd love to be an action hero, as a kid that's what you dream about doing. I'd love to be in an action film set around the war or something like that.

"There are things I'd like to do and hopefully one day I'll get a chance to do them, before I get too old and I can't run anymore."

Will is currently making a drama series called 'No Offence', which is set to air next year, while he's also filming another series of 'In The Club', a BBC drama that follows the lives of couples who meet at antenatal class.

Will said he also hopes to appear on the stage, explaining: "I'm just looking for the right one and hopefully the timing. It would be great to go on stage."
