London: British rap star Example has revealed he is scared of acting.

The 33-year-old rapper - whose real name is Elliot Gleave - has recently made the transition from music to cinema, making his big screen debut in "Between Two Worlds", and has revealed the attraction of the career switch, reported Contactmusic.

"Doing music had almost become boring for me. I used to get excited, but after my sixth album and thousands of gigs, I needed a new injection.

"Film has given me something like that. Music was no longer scary - with acting I was scared. In music I had worked so hard. I had almost pushed myself to the brink. I was doing my gigs almost on autopilot. I needed to challenge my mind again," the rapper said.

"My plan is to do two films a year for the next few years. I don't expect to set the world on fire with my performance, but I just want people to see that I can hold my own."
