Antipodean popstrel Kylie Minogue has confessed that she's vowed to return to acting and is currently choosing roles for her big screen comeback.

Although clearly far more famous for her singing career, Minogue has been acting since she was a child, first appearing in wartime soap The Sullivans and then finding fame as the Jason Donovan-romancing Charlene in Neighbours. Her feature film debut came in 1989 with teen romance The Delinquents which, although very poorly received by critics, went to number one here in the UK, propelled by Minogue's celebrity.

Although clearly far more famous for her singing career, Minogue has been acting since she was a child, first appearing in wartime soap The Sullivans and then finding fame as the Jason Donovan-romancing Charlene in Neighbours. Her feature film debut came in 1989 with teen romance The Delinquents which, although very poorly received by critics, went to number one here in the UK, propelled by Minogue's celebrity.

As she recently told Blackbook magazine: "The mid-90s were a bad patch, but show me an actor who hasn't done a few bad jobs. I have a deep desire to challenge myself with that again. As a 'pop star,' I've created this world for myself, and it becomes very natural to stay inside of it, but I'd love to do some independent films. It's still very early, but I'm in the process of choosing between specific parts."

Hmmm, the mid to late 90s certainly were a 'bad patch' seeing as the only other roles she played were Cammy in the dreadful Street Fighter, Dr. Petra von Kant in the even worse stoner comedy Bio-Dome and as 'the Girl' in little-seen short Hayride to Hell (notable only because Minogue utters the F-word in it). The last decade hasn't seen much big screen acting action from her either, except for cameoing as the Green Fairy in Moulin Rouge (2001) and voicing Florence in The Magic Roundabout (2005).

Well, at least for her return she won't be coming back cold, having appeared last year in Bollywood action film Blue, although it probably wasn't the meaty comeback role she'd been looking for. Nope, the poor dear had to resort to playing herself in a musical performance of the theme tune 'Chiggy Wiggy'...
