After winning hearts of millions of people all across the globe with her mesmerizing voice, Taylor Swift is all set to startle everyone with her acting skills now.
Taylor Swift has been offered a movie role and she is all set to accept it as well. Reportedly, the role is of Eponine in the movie adaptation of the show Les Miserables by Broadway. The movie will be directed by Tom Cooper. Yes, the same director who won tons of awards for his movie “The King’s speech”. The character in the movie would also belt out one of the most popular numbers from the show- “On My Own”. It was, in no way, easy for Swift to get this role. She had to face a tough competition from heavyweights like Evan Rachel Wood, Lea Michele and Scarlett Johansson.
Apart from Swift, the star-cast of the movie also includes Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried, Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen. The role of Eponine is of a woman who is involved in a love triangle all through the Revolution. While Jackman will be playing the role of the wrongful imprisoned hero-Jean Valjean, Russel Crowe will be playing the role of that dogged Inspector on his tail, Javert. The rest of the characters will be playing different other parts, with every part requiring them to sing their lungs out and show up a good fight for the French Revolution. Now, that’s one interesting star-crew. One thing is for sure that Taylor would be having an impressive company, indeed.
Till date, Taylor Swift has not done any major role in any movie. This will be her first ever major role. Previously, she has done a few small roles in two movies, Valentine’s Day and CSI and that too two years ago. Apart from these, she does not have any Hollywood work history behind her. Thus, it will be a great test of her acting skills. And it won’t be wrong to say that if she does justice to Eponine’s character, she is sure to have a bright career in Hollywood as well.
Till now, Hooper has taken every step carefully towards making this movie and his choices have been superb. However, the only dicey call is that of Taylor. Despite being a popular world-famous singer, she is yet to prove her acting skills on the Big Screen. Though, it will take about an year for the movie to be completed. Let’s wait and watch if Taylor can do justice with the “Eponine” character and live up to everyone’s expectations. None the less. it will be good to see her acting on the Big Screen.
