Having already found enormous success as a children's writer and television personality, it seems Sarah Ferguson has set her sights on a career in acting.

After presenting an award at the Golden Globes on Sunday, the Duchess of York spent the evening mingling with a host of Hollywood heavyweights. "I would like to act," revealed the 44-year-old. "I genuinely think it would be a good idea. Certainly I have enough experience of drama because of what my life has been like. But seriously, I would consider TV acting. Film might be a bit ambitious."

Sarah is no stranger to television work, having presented an episode of Larry King Live and appeared in the hit comedy Friends. It remains to be seen whether she will make it as a TV star, though one American broadcasting boss seemed upbeat about the idea.

"It's open to question whether she can carve a full-time career as an actress, but there's no doubt she could do it as a sideline," said the Fox executive. "There's no shortage of people who will offer her cameo parts. It would attract a lot of attention. Royalty still has a kudos here that it doesn't have in Britain."
