Halsey Set to Making Acting Debut in TV Series
Halsey is adding acting and producing to her already impressive resume.
Halsey will make her official acting debut in a new television series called The Player's Table. The show is based on the novel They Wish They Were Us, by Jessica Goodman. The "Nightmare" singer is also producing the series, which does not currently have a network.
The drama series is set around high school senior Jill Newman, played by Euphoria star Sydney Sweeney, and takes place at a prep school in Long Island. While trying to uncover the truth surrounding her best friend Shaila's murder, Jill discovers that "players" in the school's secret society may have something to do with it.
Halsey will play the role of Rachel Calloway, a troubled young woman who helps Jill on her quest to find out the truth about Shaila's death. Rachel, who graduated from the same high school three years ago, was a member of the elite "Players" club. She left the high school and her lifestyle behind after her younger brother, Graham, was convicted for the murder of Shaila. She hopes to exonerate her brother before he turns eighteen.
Halsey has yet to star in a film or television series but has proved her acting chops in countless music videos, as well as with a quick cameo in 2018's A Star Is Born.
Halsey's co-star, Sweeney, previously starred in her music video for "Graveyard." Watch below.
