Move over Marnie. Step aside Shoshanna. There are a couple of new Girls in town. Specifically, one followed by a legion of Swifties and her British-born bestie with the most covetable brows in town.
Taylor Swift and Cara Delevingneare reportedly headed to Brooklyn to film for season four of HBO’s Girls. The former’s friendship with the show’s award-winning creator Lena Dunham may have already sealed the deal.
“Lena’s been trying to persuade Taylor to appear in Girls for ages,” an anonymous source told British glossy Grazia. “Taylor loves the show and has agreed [on] a cameo. Lena would also love her to take on a more permanent role and to pen some music for the show,” something Dunham had her boyfriend’s (Jack Antonoff) band Fun do for volume one of the Girls soundtrack.
The appearance would mark Swift’s second television appearance as someone other than herself, most recently evidenced by her role as Elaine on Fox’s New Girl. It would also pad her growing film and television resume, which includes a starring role in this year’s film adaptation of The Giver alongside Meryl Streep, Katie Holmes, and Jeff Bridges.
Delevingne, like her Victoria’s Secret bum-smacking cohort Swift, is also making a transition to the soundstage. Along with her rumored spot on Girls, she’s appeared in 2012’s Anna Karenina and will star in the Amanda Knox trial thriller The Face of an Angel.
Within the Dunham-Swift-Delevingne trifecta, there’s a lot of “girl-crushing” going on.
“Taylor told Lena that Cara is a huge fan of Girls,” Grazia’s source added. “Lena immediately agreed because Cara is her girl crush. She has been in touch with Cara’s people already to discuss the idea.”
As for her take on Swift, Dunham deems her a “super-creative” role model, and modern-day champion of feminism in a special sort of way.
“Anyone who thinks Taylor Swift isn’t good for the girl cause has to be crazy,” she told Vulture last January. “Any woman who’s dominating the charts, the creative director of her own empire, and made whatever millions of dollars last year is only lifting us up. Killing it.”
Season four of Girls will air winter 2015.
