Alexandra Burke talks The Bodyguard and future music in an exclusive interview

Alexandra Burke talks The Bodyguard and future music in an exclusive interview Easter weekend had just flown by, and I was sitting waiting for a call from Alexandra Burke.

I've been a fan of Alexandra's since her time on The X Factor (who couldn't love that amazing performance with Beyoncé?), and so I was excited when I heard she'd be taking on the role of Rachel Marron in the West End production of The Bodyguard.

Chatting to Alexandra about her new role as well as putting forward some fan questions to the talented star, I was pleased to find out she was her usual, bubbly and talkative self, despite her secretive nature surrounding her forthcoming musical releases following her time in the stage production.

Find out what she had to say in the interview below about joining The Bodyguard, pressures taking on a Whitney Houston-made-famous role and much more.

You're taking on the role of Rachel in West End show The Bodyguard, what led to the decision to join the show?

Well, I mean how could you say no? (laughs) How can you say no to such an amazing opportunity? For me, it was something that came about very unexpected, and when I got the email from my agency saying 'they want you to take on Rachel Marron, what do you think?' I was just like 'woah woah woah woah woah!' - that's exactly what my reaction was, because it wasn't part of the plan to take on a role of such, I mean such a big role, at this moment in time anyway.

I came back to England and literally went in and sang some Whitney songs, did a little bit of acting, and after I walked out, two hours later they said 'the role is yours if you want it', and it didn't take me long to say 'yes', because the opportunity came about a couple of years ago and I couldn't do it because of schedules and stuff, and it came back again and I thought 'this must be a blessing'. It had to be a blessing because it's come back again, what an opportunity. It's the last three months of the actual play and I'm grateful and honoured that they've asked me.

I'm a huge fan of Whitney Houston - always have been - it's something in her legacy, and I've always wanted to do acting, why not do all my three loves in one go and have this great opportunity, and why not have your debut as an actress as well doing The Bodyguard? To me, there was nothing that could top this opportunity, so straight away I was like 'let's go have some fun, let's do it!'...
