Inspired by the show – about a an actor and his friends in Hollywood  – Zayn's new project will be based on an aspiring boyband and how they come to terms with their new-found fame.

And if there's one person who has experience in a boyband's rise to global success, it's Zayn.

The vocalist recently expressed a desire to carve out a career in acting, much like his former friend Harry Styles who is currently filming for Christopher Nolan's new World War II drama, Dunkirk.

'I started acting when I was in school with theatre studies and then music came after,' he told ELLE.

'It completely stopped when I joined the band but I'd definitely be interested if I was given the right role,' he added.

Singing, modelling, producing,  acting – is there anything Zayn can't do?
