American Idol’s Brooke White Taking Up Acting

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Music, Television,

Brooke White, who finished fifth during the seventh season of American Idol, is branching out into new entertainment genres. White will be starring in the TV movie Change of Plans, which focuses on a singer-songwriter who becomes custodian to her best friend’s four children.

White had a very successful audition, and she chalks it up to honesty. "I told them, 'Look, I have no acting experience,' and they were like, 'Great! We'll take you!'"

"It turned out to be the most enjoyable, wonderful experience, and I just fell in love with acting," she said.

The movie airs, predictably, on FOX. Look for it January 8 at 8 p.m.

In other Idol news, Carrie Underwood won the Country Music Artist of the Year award during Monday night’s American Country Awards. The Idol winner also took home a trophy for album of the year for her “Play On.”
