The Kardashian clan member is reportedly eyeing up an acting career and considering a part in the Fifty Shades of Grey film sequel.

Kendall Jenner's efforts to make it as a high-fashion model have certainly paid off, but now it seems she's not content with just being a pretty face - she wants to be an actress too.

Grazia reports that she is being eyed up for a part in the sequel to upcoming film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey, and it's all thanks to director Sam Taylor-Johnson who is said to be "fascinated by her". The artist-turned-director is reported to have wanted Jenner to star in the first film, which will be released on Valentine's Day 2015, but it didn't happen.

The film stars former Calvin Klein model Jamie Dornan as titular character Christian Grey, while Dakota Johnson plays female lead Anastasia Steele. Singer Rita Ora will also make her acting debut as Grey's adopted sister Mia.

"It wouldn't be a major role but would certainly be a foot in the door of Hollywood. Apparently, she'll only sign on once Sam Taylor-Johnson is confirmed as the director," the source added.

It would be the 18-year-old's first stab at acting, having already carved out herself a successful modelling career that has seen her pose for the likes of US Vogue, Chanel and Givenchy.
