From the stage to the big screen: Singer/songwriter Miguel is making his Hollywood debut this weekend with the film Live by Night, starring Ben Affleck and Zoe Saldana.
"It's really crazy to see yourself in a movie for the first time. It was a little bit nerve-racking, I'll say," Miguel tells Billboard. "But it was such an amazing experience and it's easy to deliver and do it when you have amazing people that you're working with. I'm very thankful for this opportunity."
The acting bug hit him after shooting the music video for his song "Coffee." "That's the video that made me realize that I wanted to pursue acting and it made me feel like I was ready. That was a pivotal moment for me. With the right preparation, I felt like I could definitely do it."
