Taylor Swift's Role in 'The Giver' Film is Important, Says Author

Taylor Swift looks as flawless as always as she heads out of her apartment and heads to the gym on Wednesday afternoon (July 9) in New York City.

The night before, the 24-year-old singer was spotted arriving home late after spending the night out.

Author Lois Lowry recently opened up about Taylor‘s role in the upcoming film adaptation of her novel “The Giver.”

“The role in the movie is still a small role, but it’s a crucial and very important one,” Lois told MTV News. “I have a copy of the movie in its final stages here on my computer, and I had my two grandsons here for the Fourth of July weekend — they’re 13 and 15 ,and I showed it to them–probably against the rules–anyways, I asked them was there anything special that they liked best and one of them selected the scene with Taylor Swift.”

She continued, “I don’t think because of Taylor Swift particularly, but because the elements of that particular scene he found very gripping. So her role in the movie is much the same in the book, except in the book she’s only remembered… And in the movie you can see the memory of her. She appears in, I don’t know the technical term would be, but you can see her. And it’s very compelling.”

As for whether we’ll see Tay perform on screen, Lois said, “I don’t know if I’m allowed to tell you that! I will tell you, she does not sing. I don’t know if it would be an appropriate thing for her to sing. It would’ve turned the movie into a musical, which it isn’t! So no, no singing.”

FYI: Taylor is wearing a Reformation romper for the night out.
