Michelle Keegan has broken her silence on quitting the UK for Hollywood.
Last week, it was reported that the Brassic actress, 36, could be set for a move to Los Angeles following the success of her Netflix series Fool Me Once.
Michelle, who is married to former TOWIE star Mark Wright, 37, already has some experience of LA life because her husband lived there for a few years while working for Extra.
In a new interview with The Guardian, Michelle has revealed that she would consider re-locating if the perfect role came along.
The former Coronation Street star said: ‘I went to America when Mark was out there. Didn’t like it. But let’s see. If a job comes up… I guess?…

‘I’ve never thought beyond what I’m doing right at that moment. And I think that’s how I live now as well. I don’t think in terms of goals. I live in the moment.’
Michelle starred as Maya Stern in Fool Me Once, alongside Joanna Lumley in the series adaptation of Harlan Coben’s novel, which quickly shot to the top of Netflix charts worldwide.
Amid her huge success, it has been claimed that the logical next step for Michelle would be a move to LA amid reports that she has been inundated with Hollywood offers.
Industry expert Nick Ede told how Fool Me Once could propel the former Coronation Street actress into becoming a ‘major’ global movie star.
He told OK! Magazine: ‘It’s really given Michelle a platform to make her a major star. All eyes are on her at the moment because Netflix is watched by millions of people globally and her series is number one here and in the US.
‘She looks every inch the Hollywood leading lady and she has star quality,’ he continued.
‘As a Hollywood producer or director, you want somebody who’s the whole package – and that’s Michelle.’
His comments come after it was revealed that Michelle is among the bookies’ favourites to land the lead female role in the next Bond movie.
The actress has been given the seal of approval by gambling experts following her success in Netflix’s new hit drama.
Gambling.com told MailOnline: ‘Michelle Keegan has recently announced herself on the world stage in Netflix’s Fool Me Once, in a starring role as grieving mother Maya Stern, who spends the series on a solo mission to investigate her husband’s death after appearing to see him on her nanny cam when he was presumed dead.
‘Michelle, who is 5/2 to be the next Bond Girl, started out in soaps, starring as barmaid Tina McIntyre in Coronation Street for six years.
‘That means she already knows how to perfect a martini – shaken, not stirred – but more than that, she could be an ideal MI6 colleague for Bond.’
Jodie Comer, who is known for starring in the hit BBC spy thriller Killing Eve, has been labelled a 6/4 favourite to land the next female Bond lead.
