Eliza Doolittle wants to be an "arse-kicking" movie heroine.

The 'Mr Medicine' singer says although music is her main passion she also likes to act and would love to be offered an action-filled role.

She said:  "I've always enjoyed acting at school but obviously music is my priority right now.

"I'd love to be an arse-kicking hardcore lady, like a kung-fu fighter or something.

"I'm not sure if that comes through in my personality but it would be fun to play that character."

If Eliza's dream of being cast as a tough heroine came true, she would love to work with Quentin Tarantino, famed for his shock-factor movies - and also wants to write a soundtrack for him.

She told BANG Showbiz: "I've featured in some soundtracks in the past and I would love to do more. I love great soundtracks to movies.

"Quentin Tarantino always picks amazing soundtracks so I would like to do something for him or write a song for him."

As well as thinking about her next musical and acting ventures, the 23-year-old star has been signed by modelling agency Select Models and has said in the past that she thinks her success is down to starting young.

She said:  "I think that if you want to make it in this business, you have to work really hard. It never really happens overnight.

"I think that if I hadn't started when I was so young then it would have taken me a lot longer to get good at it."
