Gately set for the Big Screen?...
Boyzone star Stephen Gately has revealed
he would love to pursue a career on the big screen.
Gately, who has just released his debut single says
he has been approached about acting roles. "I've had
a couple of offers," he said. One was for a musical
that I can't say much about right now but acting is
definitely something I'd like to get into. I
enjoyed the voice-over work that I did in Watership
Down so I'd like to do some more of that too.

movie and I could do the voice! I'd have loved a part
in the new Lord of the Rings film as well."

Disney's Hercules." Sadly, however the Boyzone
star dreams of a huge solo pop career may be dashed

fans don't seem to be showing the kind of loyalty
that was expected."

British charts with his debut single You're My
Angel, only reached number 13 in the UK charts

new single on July 10.
Ronan has revealed that he is terrified that the track,
Life is a Rollercoaster, will not be successful.
"My last solo record was a number one so the next
record has to be number one, otherwise I have failed,"

have stuck with us all the way and if half the fans
buy my record I'll be doing well. Please God, they
