Doing voice-over ‘very different from when you’re singing songs that you wrote,’ Swift tells MTV News.

From the recording studio to the stage, it’s certainly clear that Taylor Swift has a knack for expressing her emotions and skills. While the singer/songwriter has graced the silver screen only once, she’s taken her talents to the sound booth for her portrayal of Audrey, a tree-loving daydreamer in the upcoming film “Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax.”

MTV News sat down with Swift recently as she prepared for Friday’s release of the famous Dr. Seuss tale, which follows the journey of a young boy who must save endangered trees in hopes of winning a girl’s heart. While making music and characterizing an animated girl are two quite-different tasks, if anyone can do it, and do it well, there’s no doubt it is Taylor Swift.

“It’s a completely different space that you go to in your head,” Swift explained about voice-over work. “It’s very different from when you’re singing songs that you wrote. …With this, you’re sitting there in a booth by yourself having conversations with no one.”

Having scripted conversations by yourself and answering questions to a voice you can’t even see might seem like a lonely gig, but, as with any of her work, the Grammy-winner found meaning and excitement in her role. Even though Audrey and Swift might not exactly resemble one another physically (Audrey has red hair), the blonde singer/songwriter connected with the character on a deeper level.

“She’s heavenly. She’s such a day dreamer, and she cares so much about the past,” Taylor said. “To some degree, you have to have a priority based on the past and the future as well as the present.”

As seen in the trailer, the character of Audrey is fun, bubbly, curious and a big fan of trees. Swift certainly fits all of these traits, and we’re looking forward to seeing what she does with the character when “The Lorax” is released Friday.

Oh, and does Taylor dig trees as much as her animated counterpart? “I grew up on a Christmas tree farm, and she’s obsessed with trees,” she shared.

Do you think Taylor’s voice will work well onscreen? Share your thoughts in the comments!
