Daisy Edgar-Jones described it as a “bonker” that Taylor Swift recorded a song for her next movie.
A 24-year-old star from Where The Crawdads Sing, based on Delia Owens’ book, as a witty girl who grew up in the swamps of North Carolina.
Swift wrote and recorded Carolina’s song for the movie, which is reportedly played with end credits.
Edgar Jones spoke to El UK and said, “If Taylor Swift tells his young self that he’ll sing for something I’m in … Bonker.”
Crawdads Sing is co-produced by Reese Witherspoon through production company Hello Sunshine.
Edgar Jones describes the Hollywood star as follows:
“She has a surprising focus on complex characters and stories that are primarily female-led.”
Reflecting the range of roles she wants to pursue, she added: “The actors I really admire, like Tilda Swindon, always seem to make unexpected choices.”
Edgar Jones also talked about the new mustache of Paul Mescal, a co-star of her normal people. He made his debut at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
“Oh, I love it,” she said. “Paul can pull off anything.”
Crawdads Sing follows the story of Kya, a girl who lives alone in a swamp in North Carolina and is surrounded by a local murder mystery.
It will be released in Ireland on July 22nd.
