Model and retired soccer star David Beckham is serious about pursuing a career as an actor after landing roles in pal Guy Ritchie’s films The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and King Arthur.

Beckham says he knows that acting is tough but he is prepared to work hard.

“I am very aware that many sportsmen and other celebrities have turned their hand to acting and failed.

“I know that it is a tough profession, where you need a huge amount of skill and discipline, and I wouldn’t want to push myself forward too soon, without learning more about it, and doing a lot more practice, but what I have done so far, I have loved.”
