Los Angeles, Jul 4: Hollywood actor Charlie Sheen is reportedly wanting to make a career in British soap operas. The 50-year-old who was once the highest-paid star on TV during his stint on the US sitcom “Two and a Half Men”, says that he is open to the idea of rebuilding his career on British TV, reports dailystar.co.uk.
“A British soap opera set in London sounds great. I’d love that. How can I make it happen,” the actor said.
Sheen, who spoke out about his HIV diagnosis for the first time in a TV interview last year, has been a source of controversy for the past few years.
The actor has a string of arrests and criminal charges against his name, but could rebuild his flagging career by making a return to prime-time TV.
“If anyone knows about drama, it’s Charlie. His life is just as sensational as any soap. If he wants to be taken seriously as an actor, there’s no place better to prove yourself than a soap because it’s hard work and emotionally draining,” a source said.
