When Taylor Swift played four sold-out shows in Los Angeles last August, she simply wanted to give her crowds the best concert possible. She had no idea her performance would lead to her latest movie role in The Giver .
Taylor tells ABC News Radio, "When I played my shows in L.A., I was unaware that people from this movie were in the audience, and I had a role offered to me the next week."
So, what was it about Taylor's onstage presence that landed her the unexpected acting gig?
She says, "I think my show tends to be very emotional and moody and they saw something that they needed in the role. So, I'm very honored and lucky to get to be a part of it."
Taylor is now in South Africa filming her part in The Giver opposite Meryl Streep and Jeff Bridges . She'll launch the next leg of her Red Tour next month in New Zealand.
