Anyone that lives in the natural born world knows Adele. We have chased pavements and turned tables together before rolling in the deep and setting fire to the rain. Don't you remember?

Ok, that may have been overkill on the 'sneaking lyrics into sentences' game but my point is that this girl can't swing an Oscar without someone humming one of her songs.

At the ripe age of 27, her career achievements would put many of us to shame, but with hair that refuses to be anything but big and a voice that gives even the unsentimental of us goosebumps, we won't hold that against her.

She went right ahead and broke records (and hearts) in October with the video for her single 'Hello' achieving 27.7 million views within 24 hours, topping Taylor Swift's 'Bad Blood,' which had previously held the record, by a margin of over 7 million views.

Adele's 'Hello' video, directed by Canadian actor-filmmaker Xavier Dolan, follows the pain of a breakup in a sepia-soaked world, giving a glimpse of the singer acting her little heart out.

Her performance must have struck a chord with Dolan because now the British starlet is reportedly in talks about making a cameo in the director's next film The Death And Life Of John F. Donovan due for release next year.

The movie follows the life of an American TV star and the penpal relationship he had with an 11-year-old boy. As John F. Donovan will star Jessica Chastain, Kit Harington, Susan Sarandon and Kathy Bates, it seems fitting that British sweetheart Adele should have a place among the star-studded cast. Team Adele!

Follow the 'Adele on the silver screen' daydream: here are a few movies that we think she would have nailed.
