We thought you broke our hearts to become a ‘normal 22-year-old…’
For those of you – which probably means all of you – who were devastated by Zayn’s exit of One Direction, there’s finally hope.
Director Gurinder Chadha, of Bend it Like Beckham fame, has reportedly spoken to The Mirror about the ex-bandmate at The Asian Awards – Zayn’s first solo public appearance.
“We’ve met and spoken. He trained as an actor first then became part of the band. So I think what he’ll be doing is staying true to his heart – and that’s all you can ever do.”
We’re obviously thrilled we’ll still get to see that newly shaved head on the screens but unfortunately we’re going to have to wait a bit, as Chadha hasn’t quite thought of a part for him yet.
So, while you wait, take a look at Zayn’s Oscar-worthy performance in the Best Song Ever video, and remind yourselves why he really was the best one in 1D. Yes, really.
