Singer Susan Boyle to make film debut

  • Scottish singer Susan Boyle is set to make her debut on the big screen this Christmas.

    She will appear opposite Les Miserables star Samantha Barks in period film The Christmas Candle.

    The film, based on a novella by American preacher and author Max Lucado, is set in an English village in the 1890s where blessed candles answer people's prayers.

    It also features The Hobbit actor Sylvester McCoy and BAFTA-nominated star John Hannah.

    Boyle became an overnight international sensation in 2009 after performing the Les Miserables song I Dreamed A Dream on the television show, Britain's Got Talent.

    The video of her performance has since been viewed hundreds of millions of times on YouTube.
