And now -- shudder heights?


THE wailing voice and haunting looks of Kate Bush have already sold a million records. So what's the next step for the 20-year-old doctor's daughter who this week is playing to sell-out audiences at the London Palladlum? If the movie makers get their way, they'll turn her into a sexy vampire and bring shuddering frights from the girl who rose to fame with her number one smash hit "Wuthering Heights."

Elfin-faced Kate revealed yesterday : 'I've had two scripts offered to me recently. Both were horror films.

"But I wouldn't have thought I was a vampire. And I don't consider myself an actress, anyway."

Kate, who dances sinuously on stage to a background of conjurers, smoke and back-projected films, was asked about the other role in which she has been cast...a vamp.

"I was very rebellious when the Press first gave me the label of a sex symbol," she said.

"But it s an incredible compliment for a female to get, so long as it doesn't stand in the way of the music."
