Doherty Takes Dancing Lessons For Movie Debut!

By on 17 December, 2010


British rocker Pete Doherty is hoping to waltz into his first acting role, and he’s taking dance lessons in preparation for filming his movie debut later this month!

The Babyshambles and Libertines musician is set to star alongside actress Charlotte Gainsbourg in French production ‘Confession d’un Enfant du Siecle‘, about the life of 19th century writer Alfred de Musset. And to get himself into character, Doherty is learning how to dance.

On his blog, he writes:

“My character must display natural grace and poise – as was expected of a young aristocrat and dandy of 1830’s French society.

“I was going to film the lesson, but it didn’t seem appropriate. The teacher was just as I had imagined – straight backed, horsewhip in hand, and a brutal perfectionist.”

Nice to see he’s broadening his skills!
