R+B singer Alicia Keys is planning to embark on a career as an actress.

The stunning New York native has been looking at the many scripts sent to her, but she's decided she doesn't want to be a leading lady just yet.

She says, "Scripts have been coming my way for a while, but I've been laying low with that.

"I want to start real small, something you might miss, and then build up. My mother is an actress, and that passion is definitely in me."
