Music Trivia -> Singers Who Act -> C

All too often, a performer gets it into their head that now they've reach some margin of fame in a band, they can also act! Some make the leap ok like Will Smith, others like Vanilla Ice are best left forgotten.

Celine Dion Des fleurs sur la neige This was a Quebecois TV miniseries from 1991, which Celine starred in just as her English-language singing career was taking off (with "Where Does My Heart Beat Now"). She also played herself on an episode of "Touched By An Angel." Her acting is rather wooden (very unlike her singing) but I've seen worse. - Chris
Chaka Kahn Hunter She plays a lounge singer who ends up murdered. - Celeste
Cher Moonstruck, Suspect: Silkwood, Mermaids, Witches Of Eastwick Seems to have better success in films with one word in their title. - sherock

Connie Francis Where The Boys Are, Follow the Boys, When the Boys Meet the Girls I love Connie's singing but she isn't much of an actress (which she herself admits). Then again, no one ever said those '60s beach movies made for Oscar-worthy performances. The most memorable thing about "Where the Boys Are" is (surprise, surprise) Connie's beautiful performance of the hit title song. - Chris

Courtney Love Straight to Hell Courtney Love first set eyes on Kurt Cobain at an event I like to call "Wrestlemania Portland", an event I will describe if I find a relevant post. However, Kurt first saw Courtney in this Alex Cox movie starring Joe Strummer and Elvis Costello. Kurt watched the film with a friend, Damon Romero, who pointed at an actress and said, "Hey, there's the girl from that band down in Portland [Hole]." This woman was Courtney Love. - Jakko Wakko
