London: Singer Susan Boyle will make her film debut alongside `Les Miserables` star Samantha Barks in an upcoming holiday movie.

Boyle, 51, who found fame as a contestant on `Britain`s Got Talent` in 2009, is currently shooting `The Christmas Candle`, reported Daily Star.

The singer says she is having a blast on set because she gets to dress in costume.

"Everyone on set is a delight to work with and it`s a fantastic experience to be part of the team. I`m really enjoying getting dressed in the period costumes and stepping back in time," a statement read.

But Barks, who performed with the cast of `Les Miserables` at the Oscars, said she is struggling to keep up with the hectic shooting schedule.

"Having just landed from the Academy Awards I had an hour to unpack and repack and get to set. I`m very excited to be part of `The Christmas Candle` and I`m loving every second," Barks said.
