Making a superb breakout in the music industry at the tender age of seventeen with her debut album "Let Go", following it with another massive success with "Under My Skin" and "The Best Damn Thing", and setting a new fashion trend with her unique taste of clothing, it is fair to say that Avril Lavigne is indeed a princess of the pop punk music. However, it seems that the 23-year-old won't settle with only a career in singing business as she tries to break out to the film industry.

Recently, the "Complicated" songstress has nailed a major role in a feature film. Though details of the movie in which Lavigne portrays the lead character are still unclear, the singer herself admitted that her character would be "deep and dark" and would be different from any other previous character she had played before. To The London Paper, the chart topper confessed, "I've got a film role coming up - something you wouldn't expect from me, something deep and dark."

Though considerably new to the biz, Lavigne isn't 100% a stranger to feature film jobs. The record-selling beauty has made her movie debut by voicing Heather, a Virginia Opossum, in 2006 animation film "Over the Hedge". She then landed minor roles in Fox Searchlight Pictures' drama "Fast Food Nation" and in drama thriller "The Flock" which stars Richard Gere and Claire Danes.
