Tricky Memorizes Lines Before Acting Roles These Days

BEVERLY HILLS (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Singer Tricky has come a long way with his acting skills – he even memorizes his lines before shooting.

The rock/R&B singer, who has released eight albums so far, has been in films such as The Fifth Element and Clean and says he used to show up on sets “very unprepared.”

In fact, in his first professional acting role ever in The Fifth Element, he says although he got his script three months before he was supposed to show up on set, he didn’t even touch it until the cameras started rolling.

In his words, “I didn’t take it seriously. I pretty much learned on the set and wrote my lines on my hands and read off of them.”

Nowadays, the 37-year-old says he “definitely” prepares for his acting roles and promises the proof can be seen on March 21 when he appears on an episode of the UPN sitcom Girlfriends.
