Amy Winehouse is all set to act in the new series of "Dr. Who", it has been reported.
Amid heavy media exposure on her meltdown, Amy Winehouse is reported to act in a forthcoming episode of "Doctor Who". The troubled singer, according to NME, will reprise the role of the villainess The Rani, which was made famous by actress Kate O'Mara in the 1980s.
The Rani is described as "an evil scientific genius rouge time lord" who in previous series of the hit TV show has enslaved entire planets. The role will be Amy's first acting debut on the TV screen should report on that matter is true.
And while there have yet words from Amy and her people, sources have revealed that Amy is very excited about the role as she is a "massive fan" of the show. "She was a total DR WHO nerd as a kid," so said the sources. "Her and Blake have all the DVDs in their flat. She once even told people at the Hawley Arms that she had a massive crush on [fourth Doctor] Tom Baker when he visited the pub."
NME itself claimed report on that matter as one of various music-related pranks that have made the round on the Internet during April Fools' Day.
Meanwhile, reports are abuzz that Amy has been offered a lucrative deal by fashion designer Roberto Cavelli to be the face of his clothing line this upcoming season after he's been informed by close friend Victoria Adams that she feels like Amy is a "fashion icon" and so Roberto is taking that into consideration.
In fact, it's been confirmed that Roberto doesn't want Amy to be the model for his line but apparently he wants her to wear his clothes every time she has a show. "Cavalli was suitably taken in by what Victoria had to say that he's now determined to get Amy on board," Hollyscoop reported.
