The Years & Years singer was praised for his acting in the acclaimed TV series 'It's A Sin' and admits that he wants to play a sexy character with superpowers in the future.

"For me to be interested in a role, it would have to be (someone) sexy with magic powers. I basically want to play some kind of erotic superhero."
