Rock matriarch Sharon Osbourne has landed her first ever acting role on hit American soap Days Of Our Lives.

The wife of rocker Ozzy Osbourne took a trip down to the California set of the 39-year-old show on Wednesday (28JAN04), and was quickly ordered to display her acting skills.

She says, "I actually got my first acting job and I acted in a scene yesterday with Alison Sweeney and Bryan Dattilo, who play SAMMY and LUCAS on the show.

"I played a very tough, butch PE teacher!"

Osbourne's scene will air in American 9 February (04).

The casting comes as good news to Sharon, after it was recently announced that her American chat show has been cancelled after less than five months on the air.
