Alex Reid - Alex Reid Wants Serious Acting Roles

Alex Reid wants to stop being a "loveable prat" and show who he really is.

The cage fighter and bit part actor - who is married to glamour model Katie Price - wants people to take his acting career more seriously and is hoping to win new roles in gritty drama programmes.

Alex said: "I don't think I always get portrayed in the correct light. I'm a Rodney Trotter, like in 'Only Fools And Horses', which is nice, but the thing is I've got goals.

"It's great being a loveable prat but, when you've got aspirations you're limited. I want some very serious acting roles.

"I really loved the new 'Spartacus: Blood And Sand' series. That would be a good job, or something with politics, religion, sex and violence."

The frustrated star has appeared in his wife's 'What Katie Did Next' reality show, but said he's keen to move on from reality TV, despite planning his own show 'I Am Alex Reid'.

He added: "I don't want to be doing any more reality shows like 'What Katie Did Next'. I like to keep that privacy and mysticism. I don't want the cameras there 24/7.

"Will my show answer questions about my relationship with Katie? No, not really because it's not about my private life. Well, maybe it will. I'm sure it will. This is why I don't like to do reality because I like to keep that mysticism to keep a healthy relationship.

"There's a bit of family-life stuff but that's not the focus. It's about me being independent rather than part of the Katie Price machine."

The cage fighter - who is stepfather to his wife's children Harvey, eight, Junior, five and Princess, three - also admitted he rarely sits down to watch Katie's shows.

He told new! magazine: "I don't, to tell you the truth, because I've seen it for real, but I try and watch to see what's going out there."
