Former Coronation Street star Michelle Keegan says she wants a role in cult series Game of Thrones now she has left the cobbles.

And the graphic drama’s explicit sex scenes haven’t put her off.

“I’m a huge Game of Thrones fan,” Michelle told the Daily Star. “I’d obviously love a role in that. I would consider getting naked and having sex scenes if the role was right.”

Michelle, who is engaged to former The Only Way Is Essex star Mark Wright, said she is now looking for a “serious” acting role.

Michelle, 27, denied she would be involved in a show like Strictly Come Dancing following her departure from the soap.

Her character Tina McIntyre was killed off in a gripping Coronation Street whodunit.

“I’m auditioning now. It’s nerve-wracking but I’m getting more excited than anything.

“I’m currently busy having elocution lessons and acting lessons and want to be taken seriously as an actress.”
