Kate Moss is to make her stage debut in a Shakespeare play.

The supermodel has reportedly landed a small part playing a nymph in an upcoming version of 'The Tempest' which will be overseen by Kevin Spacey and directed by Sam Mendes.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Kate has had several acting lessons and is keen to broaden her horizons. She and Kevin go back a long way and they met up again last week at the W Doha bash at China White in London, where her part was confirmed.

"It's only a small part but Kate hopes it could be her big break."

Apparently Kate had been in talks about a minor role for a while and had several meetings in recent weeks with Kevin - who is the artistic director of the Old Vic theatre in London.

'The Tempest' will take to the stage as part of 2010's The Bridge Year Project, which will see Hollywood filmmaker Sam mastermind the play as well as directing 'As You Like It'.

The 36-year-old beauty partied with Kevin at London hot spot China White last Monday (22.03.10), where they had a friendly dance-off as they enjoyed the W Doha 1st Birthday celebrations.

A partygoer said: "They were chatting closely all night and just seem to really hit it off. They looked like they were having a great time."
