You’re a real ’90s kid if you read Lois Lowry’s 1993 dystopian children’s novel about euthanasia, The Giver. As has been widely reported, Taylor Swift is set to play a role in the adaptation of the worldwide best-selling book. The global pop star plays the small but “crucial and very important” character of Rosemary, Lowry said in a recent interview with MTV News.

Per the principal photography released for The Giver, Swift goes brunette for the role. And in one photo, she’s seated in front of a piano with Jeff Bridges, who plays the title role.

Does this mean we’ll see her musical talents worked into the film somehow?

“I will tell you, she does not sing,” Lowry said. “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.”

This will force the most vociferous Taylor Swift fans to enjoy the movie on its own cinematic merits and Swift’s acting prowess. For a refresher her chops, check out a montage of Swift on CSI from 2009.
