The Wanted star Max George has revealed his plans to become an actor, admitting that he is attending auditions in the hope of landing a role soon.

The 24-year-old Chasing the Sun singer explained that he had plans to become an actor before he joined the pop group.

Speaking to British radio station Key 103, George said: "Years ago I used to do auditions for parts but then I joined the band and it all disappeared.

"But now that I'm in Hollywood [with the group] it's the perfect opportunity. I'm very serious about it and I'm having auditions again."

"I don't want to **** this up.

"If I don't get the accent right, it could definitely hold me back, but I'm just going to have to work on it."

The Wanted recently said that they are having doubts about filming a second series of their E! reality series The Wanted Life.
