Taylor never denied the fact that she would love to get more involved in the realm of acting, but she says she’s being intentional about where she dives in.
“I’ve been reading scripts for about five years — just kind of under the radar, asking my agents to please send me everything that might be good,” she told Inquirer Entertainment in 2013. “When I look at acting careers that I really admire, I see that it’s been a precise decision-making process for these people. They make decisions based on what they love and they do only the things that they are passionate about. They play only characters that they can’t stop thinking about.”
While many may not know this, Taylor says she actually started out her career in acting, not music. “When I was growing up in Pennsylvania, auditioning for Broadway was my dream,” she dished. “I went to several auditions in New York. I was always going there for vocal and acting lessons…and for auditions, where you stand in line in a long hallway with a lot of people. (I’ve always been freakishly tall, like a giant.) After a few years of auditioning in New York and not getting anything, I started writing songs. But I never lost my love for theater.”
