Crystal Bowersox has been interested in acting ever since she was a high school student in Toledo, OH. But, back then, she put aside the stage for a guitar.
Now, she gets to finally stretch her creative wings–she’s got an acting gig! Crystal is in Rhode Island today filming a guest spot for ABC’s mid-season replacement series, Body of Proof!
Crystal Bowersox, who should have won on the singing show last season, makes her professional acting debut Thursday in Providence, R.I., as a guest on the set of ABC’s mid-season series Body of Proof. The 25-year-old singer-songwriter isn’t turning a page (her first commercial album comes out Dec. 14). She’s opening a new book.
“This is my first professional acting gig, other than the music videos we did on American Idol, ” she says. “Body of Proof contacted me. They thought I’d be good for the role. Turns out, they think I can act as well. I’m happy for that.”
The series will probably premiere in March 2011. We might not get to see her as Zoe Reese, jailed after beating her drug dealer ‘to a bloody pulp, ‘ until April or May.
“I’m glad I’ve been given this opportunity, ” Crystal adds. She arrived in Providence to film her part on Wednesday.
