Andrea Corr of Irish band The Corrs has taken a role in The Thread, a thriller set in India and London.

The 31-year-old singer has already shot her scenes in India and will soon head for the Isle of Man for more filming.

Saffron Burrows and Linus Roache also appear in a film described by producer Deepak Nayar as "like The Sixth Sense".

Corr, who has acted in The Commitments and Evita, was seen last year in The Bridge, a short thriller that screened at the Cannes Film Festival.

In it she played a sacked hospital psychologist counselling an elderly man who is contemplating suicide, played by former EastEnders actor Leonard Fenton.

The Thread tells of a half-Indian, half-English businessman haunted by a mysterious woman from his past.

The cast also includes Bollywood actor Roshan Seth.

The Corrs release their latest album, Home, on 26 September.
