History[]

2009 Saturday Night Live Monologue Song

Taylor made a cameo appearance in the Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience, performing "Should've Said No."

Swift made her acting debut in the season 9, episode 16 (March 5, 2009) episode of CBS's CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, titled "Turn, Turn, Turn", playing a rebellious teenager named Haley Jones. The New York Times noted that the character allowed Swift to be "a little bit naughty, and credibly so". Rolling Stone felt she "held her own" and "does a good job with the script" while the Chicago Tribune said she "acquits herself well".

Later that year, Swift both hosted and performed as the musical guest for an episode of Saturday Night Live. Entertainment Weekly described her as "this season's best Saturday Night Live host so far", noting that she "was always up for the challenge, seemed to be having fun, and helped the rest of the cast nail the punchlines". Proving "admirably resilient in a wide variety of sketch roles", "Swift inspired more of a female, girly-in-the-best-sense sensibility in SNL than it's shown since the Tina Fey-Amy Poehler days".

She had a cameo in Hannah Montana: The Movie (April 10, 2009), performing "Crazier".

Swift made her feature film acting debut in the 2010 ensemble comedy Valentine's Day, playing Felicia Miller, the ditzy Valley girlfriend of a high school jock, played by ex-boyfriend Taylor Lautner. The Los Angeles Times felt the performance suggested "serious comedic potential" while the San Francisco Chronicle found her "very funny". Time remarked that Swift portrayed her character "rather charmingly"; The Boston Globe described her as "adorably dorky". Salon asserted that she was "one of the few actors not wasted in "Valentine's Day". Her overgrown-pixie look and odd, widely set eyes lend her a little bit of Marilyn and a little bit of Lucille Ball: She's Taylor-made for comic greatness."

Taylor does the voice acting for a character in the 3D film version of Dr. Seuss' The Lorax, which came out on March 2, 2012. She plays the girl next door, named Audrey, which the main character, Ted, falls in love with, and is desperate to do whatever it takes to impress her.

In 2013 she acted in the TV series New Girl, as Elaine in the last episode of season two.

Later that year, Taylor played the role of Rosemary, the daughter of the namesake of the movie, in The Giver, adapted from the book of the same name.

Taylor was cast as Bombalurina in the 2019 movie adaption of the hit musical Cats, directed by Andrew Lloyd Webber.[1]

In 2022, Taylor appeared as a supporting role in the film Amsterdam, playing Liz Meekins.
