I loved filming scenes in acting class – Nicky

He has made the move from singer to TV presenter and now he is fronting his own radio show.

But former Westlife star Nicky Byrne is not finished yet, and even has some acting roles in his sights.

The dad-of-three revealed that he completed a course for budding thespians while he was on a break from Westlife.

“People did suggest acting and I did a New York Academy course in 2005 when we took four months off,” he explained.

“I didn’t like going to class day after day, after day. The best part was when they gave you a scene and filmed you.”

The 35-year-old said he wouldn’t turn down a future acting job, but will always put his family first and wait for the movie roles to come to him.

He is currently busy with his new 2fm show.

“I’ve always felt I wanted to do it,” he told Yvonne Keating in her new Woman’s Way column.
