While there are a lot of stars from the UK who have left long-lasting roles in big British television shows, as they head to America to try to crack Hollywood, before failing to succeed and ending up back in the UK, it seems that the show Hollyoaks is the place to start, as there are a number of former Hollyoaks stars doing well in Hollywood right now.
One former Hollyoaks star who has spent the past few years trying to make a big name for herself in Hollywood, is the beautiful and talented actress Emma Rigby. Already in her career Emma has appeared in shows such as Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, Becoming Human and Prisoners Wives, while she has also appeared on the big screen with Cameron Diaz and Brad Pitt in the movie The Counselor.
Emma Rigby has been talking about her rise in Hollywood, admitting that she would love to work on a movie with top Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio, while she would also love a role in a Martin Scorsese film. Meanwhile, Emma has claimed that she just wants to keep landing roles that excite and challenge her.
Rigby recently explained, "I want to choose something that excites me, gives me a ‘wow’ moment, challenges me and makes me feel like I’m achieving something."
Emma Rigby can currently be seen on the big screen in the UK, starring alongside Ed Speleers, Will Poulter and Alfie Allen, in the movie Plastic. We are not sure when the film will hit the US. You can check out the trailer for Plastic below.
