Louis Tomlinson says playing Jamie Vardy in a movie would be a 'golden opportunity'
The One Direction star was a guest at the wedding of Leicester City and England player Vardy to Rebekah Nicholson.
Louis, 24, is set to play the famous footballer in a biopic. “It’s a golden opportunity,” he told Hello! magazine when asked about the planned film. “Jamie’s story is incredible – he’s incredible.”
The singer and Doncaster Rovers fan added: “He’s a lovely guy, very easy-going and such a great example for anyone who thinks they can’t follow their dreams.”
Leicester City, who faced relegation last season, won the Premier League title in what has been described as one of the greatest sporting stories of all time.
Louis added: “For a football fan, any kind of involvement in a story like Jamie’s is exciting.”
The pop star attended the wedding, which took place on May 25, with his American actress girlfriend Danielle Campbell. Contrary to reports, he did not perform on the day.
Jamie, 29, and his wife, 34, tied the knot at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire. The bride wore a Caroline Castigliano gown on the big day. The couple’s 19-month-old daughter Sofia was a flower girl.
Jamie told Hello! that seeing his bride and daughter walk down the aisle made him emotional.
