"Jesy was in a few movies when she was little, and acting is something that she has always dreamed of pursuing.
"She was impressed with the way Harry managed to make his mark on the film world, and would love to be cast in a blockbuster of her own. So recently she has been looking for an acting agent to help her get a foot in the door," a source told The Sun online.
The 26-year-old singer has also assured her band, which also comprises of Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall, that her acting dreams will not hamper her singing career as Little Mix will always be her priority.
"The girls have an agreement in place that anything to do with Little Mix will always come first for them. The band is 100 per cent their priority.
