Actress Celia Imrie is adding novelist to her resume after starting her first work of fiction.
The 'Bridget Jones's Diary' star released her autobiography, The Happy Hoofer, in 2011 and she is now branching out as a writer, reported Daily Star.
"I am writing my first novel, set in the south of France, which I am very excited about. I am halfway through it now. It is English people who go to live in the south of France thinking they're going to have a sort of new life, which isn't necessarily (the case)," Imrie said.
Imrie said she is working on the novel in France.
"It's a terribly good excuse to go over there. I chose it on purpose," she said.
