Example turned to acting because making music has become ''boring''.
The 33-year-old rapper - whose real name is Elliot Gleave - makes his big screen debut in 'Between Two Worlds', but has warned cinemagoers he does not expect to ''set the world on fire'' with his first performance.
The chart-topping star said: ''Doing music had almost become boring for me. I used to get excited, but after my sixth album and thousands of gigs, I needed a new injection.
''Film has given me something like that. Music was no longer scary - with acting I was scared.
''In music I had worked so hard. I had almost pushed myself to the brink. I was doing my gigs almost on autopilot. I needed to challenge my mind again. My plan is to do two films a year for the next few years. I don't expect to set the world on fire with my performance, but I just want people to see that I can hold my own.''
Example said he was drawn to appearing in 'Between Two Worlds' because he can empathise, to some extent, with his on-screen character.
He told the Evening Standard newspaper: ''What I liked about this is that there is no violence. I play a young investment banker who is a bit misogynistic. Maybe I was channelling my younger self.''
