 Susan Boyle

From reality show contestant to viral video sensation to… Hollywood movie star?

Vocal powerhouse Susan Boyle is making the jump to movies as she is set to make her feature film debut in John Stephenson‘s The Christmas Candle.

“Everyone on set is a delight to work with, and it’s a fantastic experience to be part of the team,” Boyle told THR. “I’m really enjoying getting dressed in the period costumes and stepping back in time, and although it’s very cold filming on location, I’m wearing long johns under my bustle.” After her Britain’s Got Talent audition, Boyle achieved viral video status from her performance of Les Miserables “I Dreamed a Dream.”

Writer Sydney Bucksbaum likes to think her hobby of watching insane amounts of TV isn't an obsession... it's not an obsession, okay, so just drop it! As the resident CW-lover on the staff, she truly believes her Clark Kent/Dean Winchester/Damon Salvatore/Lucas Scott/Oliver Queen/Chuck Bass/Seymour Birkhoff/Wade Kinsella/Vincent Keller/Micah Barnes is out there somewhere, waiting for her, in real life (just go with it). After graduating from Northwestern University with a degree in journalism, Sydney has made it her mission to campaign for more shirtless scenes for her favorite CW hunks. You're welcome.
