Lewis Hamilton has shared videos of himself on social media of him at a firing range, showcasing his shooting skills. 

The six-time world champion has hinted at a potential movie role in the future, with the caption that accompanied his most recent shoot suggesting that he is interested in such a performance. 

"Excited to show you something I’ve started working on," Hamilton wrote on social media. "I’ve always loved action movies and dreamed of one day being in one.

"This is where Keanu Reeves trains for his John Wick movies so I came here to start training for my first movie role. This is only day 1, was a super fun few hours in a safe professional environment."


Hamilton has dipped into other projects before, appearing in video games such as the popular 'Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare' title. 

The Briton wrapped up his sixth world championship in 2019, his fifth with Mercedes since he joined the team in 2013.

  • I really hope he doesn't do anything cheesy. He'd be great for cameos, but anything beyond that would be so bad. Lewis is not an actor. However, gotta say that his shooting was pretty impressive, he has clearly trained.

  • I think he might be able to do a good job acting if he puts his mind to it. He's got charisma and that pretty boy hollow-wood look.
