While her former band mate Waylon has been selected to be the Dutch representative at Eurovision 2018, Common Linnets singer Ilse De Lange is set to appear in American hit TV drama Nashville. The singer who has relocated to Nashville, will play an unknown role in four- seven episodes of the TV show that is set in the American Country music heartland. Ilse is a huge fan of the show and has used her contacts to get in touch with the show’s producers to secure a part in the series.
Although De Lange has a rich musical CV- having placed second with band the Common Linnets at Eurovision 2014 and released various albums, and is host of Dutch music TV show Ilse’s Verdana, this will be her first foray into acting.
Filming is due to take place in the next few months in what will be the show’s sixth and final season due to air in January 2018.
