Sugababe Jade Ewen has landed a film role – weeks after declaring bankruptcy.
The singer, who joined the girl group in 2009, will star alongside acclaimed actorSteven Seagal in the action thriller End of a Gun.
Jade hasn’t wasted any time throwing herself into the role as she flew to Romania to film scenes earlier this week.
She tweeted: “On my way to Romania to shoot my first ever action movie ‘End Of A Gun’ with Steven Seagal! Wish me luck.”
The gig appears to have come in the nick of time after Jade was reportedly forced to declare bankruptcy in the face of owing thousands to the taxman.
“Jade put her all into her music but sadly things simply haven’t gone well,” a source told The Sun.
“She joined the Sugababes full of optimism and had high hopes given the band were very much established in the charts. But it seems she fell victim to their shelf life expiring.”
We have contacted Jade’s reps for a comment.
