Hannah Spearritt prefers acting
Hannah Spearritt prefers acting to singing nowadays.
The 34-year-old beauty may have shot into the limelight as a member of S Club 7 in 1999 but she has admitted her passion for music has taken a backseat over the past few years and she now sees herself as an actress rather than a singer.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, she said: "I just love acting. It's what I was about really. I used to do a lot of theatre and when I was 13, I did a lot of National Youth Theatre shows, so obviously with that I was doing a lot of singing, acting and dancing. To be honest, when I was younger, I probably wanted to be a singer. But I think over time, I kind of grew to love acting more. And now I definitely love it more because I've learnt more about it and it's more my thing now."
The blonde beauty recently landed a gig in the medical drama 'Casualty' as penniless drug addict Mercedes Christie and is currently residing in Wales while she shoots scenes.
She said of her schedule: "I've moved up to Wales - I'm in a hotel. And then I go back at weekends. I've been up in Wales since last November. It's quite nice because I've never been to Cardiff before. I seem to get lucky in the schedule so I seem to get a long weekend, which is really nice."
