Octavia Spencer to turn producer

Octiva Spencer
LOS ANGELES: Actress Octavia Spencer, who won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for "The Help", is planning to turn producer.

"I don’t have any role that I want to play. I want to be a producer. I want to be an activist. I was to be pro-active in bringing about work for men, women, boys, girls, everybody who is good at what they do and deserve a shot," contactmusic.com quoted her as saying.

After winning the golden statuette, Spencer admitted she was ”humbled” by the accolade and hopes she could be a "beacon of hope" to aspiring actresses.

She said backstage: "I’m very humbled because I get to stand here and accept this award and I haven’t really done anything.

"I hope that in some way I can be some kind of beacon of hope, especially am I am not the typical Hollywood beauty."

She will next be filming a role in an as-yet-untitled Diablo Cody project and will also work on "Snow Piercer".
