Lovi Poe is making the Hollywood rounds as she stars in upcoming film, The Chelsea Cowboy with Alex Pettyfer, Poppy Delevingne, and Idris Elba. Deadline says the film is based around the life of actor, gangster, lothario John Bindon as it explores the rise and fall of bodyguard turned actor and his intriguing career. Lovi is set to play British blues singer Dana Gillespie.

Dana Gillespie employed Bindon as security and also provided him with access to the high life, most notably the island of Mustique where he met Princess Margaret. Her character is very charismatic and well known for her close ties to A-list leading singers and actors like: David Bowie, Bob Dylan, Mick Jagger, Michael Caine, Jimmy Page, Keith Moon and Sean Connery. Production is set to star October this year.

“The team and I are delighted to have Lovi onboard and can’t wait to see her portrayal of Dana Gillespie – a sixties icon and charismatic singer and actor, whose own life would indeed make an amazing biopic.”

Lovi Poe is an actress, model, and recording artist. The last name might sound familiar as she's the daughter of the late action star Fernando Poe Jr. She's kicked off her career as an actress but extends her artistry into music. Candy was released on August 6th with the music video out now! It is definitely a fun, pop summer song that gives you retro vibes with all the references to the rollerblades, crochet outfits, and vintage film feel in the video. Already this year, there's two other singles titled Lost and Under that debuted where she worked with Grammy Award-winning producer Omen. Lovi also released a cover of the classic song With A Smile by Eraserheads, which is the official soundtrack of her recently concluded series Owe My Love with Benjamin Alves.
