Taylor Swift has discussed her time spent filming new flick The Giver in South Africa, labelling the shoot "one of the most amazing experiences of my life".
The 23-year-old stars opposite Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Katie Holmes and Alexander Skarsgard in the film, which tells the story of a young man from a seemingly perfect community who learns the truth about the 'real' world from one of his elders.
Speaking to Access Hollywood, the singer-turned-actress admitted: “I still can’t believe I shot in South Africa and shot all my scenes with Jeff Bridges. It was unreal."
The Red singer continued: “Seriously, I couldn’t believe I got to be a part of the experience. And I just tried to work as hard as I could and just throw myself into that environment as much as I possibly could.
"It was really long hours and it was a lot of preparation and getting into character and all that. But it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Honestly.”
T-Swizzle has shown off her acting talents before, appearing in the film Valentine's Day and guesting on hit TV show New Girl, but her role in The Giver took her skills to a whole new level.
Taylor dished: "I learned so much. It’s crazy how educational just getting into a situation and doing it [is]."
She added: "You learn so much more, because I have taken acting classes and read as much as I possibly can on it and done theatre before all this started, [but] you learn more by actually doing it than you could ever learn in preparation.”
The Giver is currently slated for release in August 2014.
