Octavia Spencer to turn producer

Los Angeles: Actress Octavia Spencer, who won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for ‘The Help’, is planning to turn producer.

"I don`t have any role that I want to play. I want to be a producer. I want to be an activist. I was to be pro-active in bringing about work for men, women, boys, girls, everybody who is good at what they do and deserve a shot," a website has quoted her as saying.

After winning the golden statuette, Spencer admitted she was ``humbled`` by the accolade and hopes she could be a "beacon of hope" to aspiring actresses.

She said backstage: "I`m very humbled because I get to stand here and accept this award and I haven`t really done anything. I hope that in some way I can be some kind of beacon of hope, especially am I am not the typical Hollywood beauty."

She will next be filming a role in an as-yet-untitled Diablo Cody project and will also work on ‘Snow Piercer’.
