Britain’s Got Talent singer Susan Boyle is currently shooting her debut movie, a period drama involving angels and a magical candle.

The reluctant 51-year-old Scottish star has been cast in a small role in a movie called The Christmas Candle. She plays the wife of the church warden involved in a magical Christmas where an angel visits the fictitious village of Gladbury every 25 years.

According to The Daily Mail, the film began shooting in the picturesque Cotswolds in southern England this week and Boyle will sing a song written for her in a church scene.

The movie also stars Les Miserable actress Samantha Barks, Lesley Manville, Hans Matheson, former Doctor Who Sylvester McCoy, and John Hannah.

Edgy stuff. Could we have a future crimbo classic on our hands here?
