Canadian pop star Avril Lavigne is set to put her music career on hold after landing her first lead role in a movie.
The singer has toyed with acting in the past, taking on minor roles in last year’s The Flock and 2006 film Fast Food Nation. She also provided the voice for a character in 2006 animated movie Over The Hedge.
But now Lavigne is stepping up her career as a serious thespian with her first starring role – and she insists it will be totally different to her previous work. [Yahoo Music]
