Over the years we have seen a whole host of British television stars deciding to quit their show and make the move over to the US in a bid to have a go at making a name for themselves in Hollywood. While some of these stars have gone on to enjoy huge success, there are others who have had to go crawling back to the UK with their tails between their legs.
British actress Michelle Keegan said fairwell to her character Tina in the British soap Coronation Street earlier in the year and she is now expected to try to prove she has what it takes in Hollywood. There is no denying that Michelle has the acting talents and the looks to become a huge success and here we take a look at a few of the possible routes her career could go.
Following the success of the Expendables movies there are now plans to make a female version of the franchise, with aging Holywood stars, mixed with some young, up and coming talent. Michelle Keegan certainly has the physique to take on the action star role required for the ExpendaBelles and it would be a great way to introduce her to Hollywood.
Ever since the Tomb Raider video games had a reboot and brought a new origins story for Lara Croft, there has been a lot of talk about making a new Tomb Raider movie, and this time by casting a British actress to play the role. Again, Michelle Keegan's body is perfect for the role of Lara Craft in a Tomb Raider film and it could give her a huge Hollywood boost.
Finally there is the hit HBO fantasy drama series Game of Thrones, which has become renowned for its Northern accents. Michelle Keegan is from the North of England and her accent is perfect for a role in Game of Thrones and she certainly has the acting talent to make a name for herself on the show.
Michelle Keegan is a beautiful and talented actress and we have no doubt that there are producers and casting agents in Hollywood all keeping an eye on the promising star, in fact, we know they are.
