Carl Barat: 'I have always wanted to act'
Carl Barat has revealed he has always had the desire to act.

The former Libertines star, who is set to make his stage debut in January and had a brief role in the 2009 Joe Meek biopic 'Telstar', has said that treading the boards is something he has wanted to do for a long time.

"I have always wanted to act," Barat said in a statement. "So when Sadie [Frost] and [artistic director] Neil [Sheppeck] offered me this I was very much up for it." 

He added: "It's certainly one hell of a challenge, but I'm really enjoying the process of collaboration. I have loved the fact that, as a performer, I have been given the rare opportunity to be an integral part of the company's creative process."

Barat is starring alongside actress Sadie Frost in the play 'Fool For Love' at Riverside Studios in Hammersmith.

Beginning on January 25, the production will run till March 21, with a post-show talk taking place on January 29.
