‘The X Factor’s Matt Terry To Abandon Music for Acting
It’s been just over a year since crooner Matt Terry took the top prize at The X Factor UK. With his boyish good looks and amazing vocal ability he beat out some pretty stiff competition. It seems that young Matt is tired of the music game and wants to move on to something else: acting.
I’m not sure that it will be a smart career move for him since he’s so well known as a singer and winner of The X Factor UK, but who knows? Stranger things have happened. He said,
“I’ve decided I’d like to act. I feel like something for TV or theatre would be good or even a film. I’m open to that side of the industry now. I think it would be really fun. That’s the next step for me. I studied drama at college and it was always my forte along with singing. It’s something I’m really interested in. So I’m hoping it will happen at the right time.”
He says he’s gotten some offers. Of course, the easy comparison is to Harry Styles who also came out of The X Factor and has moved into acting. He was in Dunkirk, for Goodness sakes. Matt continues,
“It’s not something people will expect from me. I’ll always be known as an X Factor winner. But then anything is possible – look at Harry Styles. He went into acting and now he’s massive. Whatever you put your mind to is possible.”
We wish him luck. Acting is a difficult game even if you are already famous and good-looking like Matt.
