Jamie Bell Hoping For A Long Career

NICHOLAS NICKLEBY actor JAMIE BELL wants a long and illustrious career in movies - so has had enough of being constantly referred to as the 'BILLY ELLIOT boy'.

The surprise hit film about a ballet dancing boy shot the then 13-year-old to stardom, but Jamie - now 17 - wants to be remembered for his more recent roles.

He explains, "Billy Elliot was four years ago. People are always going on about it. It's really time for me to move on.

"PAUL NEWMAN has had a long career and that is what I want, to be a main player in the game for as long as I can."

And Bell is committed to doing the most he can to make sure he is focused on his work.

He says, "I don't drink, I don't smoke and I'd never touch drugs. That is about wasting your time and your life and I am absolutely never going to do that."
