Irina Shayk wants to play a Russian spy.
The Victoria's Secret model - who was born and raised in Russia and starred alongside Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson in 'Hercules' - wants to pursue more acting roles and admits her dream part would be that of a Russian spy.
Speaking about what kind of film she'd like to star in next, she told the New York Post newspaper's PageSix: "Something very cool with the guns, maybe some Russian KGB agent. I would prefer something with a Russian spy. My grandmother, who passed away last year, worked as a secret agent in [the First World War] so I think she would love something like that."
The 29-year-old beauty's grandmother Galina Shaykhlislamova is believed to have been an intelligence agent in Stalin's Red Army.
Meanwhile, Irina previously confessed that she never attended any drama lessons before landing the role of Megara in the Brett Ratner-directed film.
She said of her acting debut: "It was a really great experience. Especially as I've never taken acting classes in my life."
Admitting she bonded with her co-stars Dwayne, John Hurt and Ian McShane, she added: "To be on set with these amazing people was a dream come true."
