Oh, oh, oh? Cut the cameras or should it be roll the cameras? Either way, what do we have here Miss Halsey?! Fans of Halsey got a shocker when unexpected news dropped about her newest upcoming project. It’s been confirmed by the queen herself on Instagram that she will be making her acting AND producing debut soon.
Give us a moment because we’re SCREAMING. Halsey will act in a television series called The Player’s Table, adapted from the YA thriller best selling novel They Wish They Were Us by Jessica Goodman. Halsey will be making her acting debut alongside Sydney Sweeney who is best known for her role in the hit HBO series Europhia. The two have worked with each other previously when Sweeney played an alternate version of Halsey in Halsey’s music video ‘Graveyard’.
The Player’s Table is about a group of elite high schoolers called players who are working to uncover the truth about a loved one’s death. Halsey will star in the show as Rachel Calloway, a former player who’s convinced her brother is innocent and is working alongside Jill (Sweeney) to exonerate her brother. The show is being executively produced by Sweeney’s newly-launched production company Fifty-Fifty Films in addition to Jean-Marc Vallée and Nathan Ross’ Crazyrose and Endeavor Content. The script will be written by Annabelle Attanasio, known for Mickey and the Bear. Halsey will also be assisting in this production as this show will be her producing debut.
The surprising news comes shortly after Halsey dropped her first live album, Badlands (Live from Webster Hall) back on August 28th. Alongside this newest upcoming project, Halsey has a poetry book due to be released in November called I Would Leave Me If I Could. Halsey stans are truly living!
We can’t wait to see Halsey make her big acting and producing debut! She never fails to thrill us with her artistry and we’re glad that we can see it outside of her music!
