Chapter II - Wet Sand, Dry Sand 

Something calls for you. 

The wind whispering through the open window washes over your hot skin, brushing sure fingers through your loose hair and kissing your sticky temple, pressing cool palms to your burning cheeks and caressing its invisible lips against your ears. There’s an elemental inhale and –

The world narrows then stills. 

Thick silence engulfs you, like your head slipping underwater; your eyes softly close at the esoteric sensation swirling in your chest – ink in water, magic in blood, staining your insides. Awakened by the touch of invisible tender fingers your soul floats to a place far away, below crashing waves and rocky cliffs, down down to secret depths of blue darkness. Only once you’ve reached this place, sense the yearning that throbs under the deceptive layer of quiet peace, only then does the wind sing it’s song to you.

Go to him, it lulls in your ears like waves lapping at the shore, Go to himGo to him…Come to me, the wind hushes now with a new twist in its tone, Come to me

From the clench of your heart you know that the voice the wind carries is his. Basking in the brilliant belonging of his call you open your eyes and know that your soul is no longer yours. You feel it, feel him, in the very core of your being. There’s an elemental inhale and –

You go to him.

[Taylor]’s a very soulful, interesting young woman and we had this very out-of-the box idea that maybe it would make sense that she could be our Rosemary, and she’s fantastic. I’ve spent a lot of time with her, and she had just been looking to dip her toe slightly in acting… She doesn’t sing in the movie, but she does play a little piano, which we had written for that character before we hired her.

Exclusive Clip: Taylor Swift Brings Musical Touch to Key Role in ‘The Giver’

Like many pop stars before her, Taylor Swift has been making a concerted effort to cross over into acting, beginning with appearances on TV’s CSI in 2009, and continuing with the 2010 romantic comedy Valentine’s Day. Her latest turn is a small but pivotal role in The Giver — the much-anticipated adaptation of Lowis Lowry’s 1993 young-adult novel — and we’ve got an exclusive first look above.

The haunting scene finds the singer-actress — appearing in hologram form — flexing her musical and acting chops as she plays piano alongside co-star Jeff Bridges, who also serves as one of the film’s producers. He’s been trying to make the movie for 18 years, no doubt hooked in by the plot that’s made it such a best-seller: As any fan will tell you, The Giver takes place in the distant future where a “utopian” society has been manufactured out of the ashes of an apocalypse. There’s no war, violence, hatred or poverty — but in order to maintain that lifestyle, citizens have sacrificed free will and the ability to feel. In the film version, newcomer Brenton Thwaites plays Jonas, a teenager chosen to be this society’s “Receiver of Memories” from The Giver (Bridges), meaning he’ll be the only person of his generation to see what life looked like before his society’s overarching philosophy of “Sameness” was installed.

While going into too much detail about Swift’s character would be going into spoiler territory, as is revealed in the clip she plays Rosemary, the Receiver of Memories previous to Jonas. And “she no longer exists.”

Swift, who wore a brunette wig for the part, was an 11th-hour addition to The Giver cast, signing on less than two weeks before production was to start in Capetown, South Africa. Bridges told WENN that he believed her casting was the idea of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein: “He said, ‘Well, you’re being taught piano here, and somebody who would be great for that part is Taylor.’ She came into his mind and I’m so glad she stepped on board. She had read the book and was a big fan.” Producer Nikki Silver told the Washington Post that they had auditioned several actresses for the role, and decided on Swift after seeing her in concert.

Swift’s Giver co-stars have gushed about her performance: “She’s such a brilliant songwriter and singer and a wonderful actress,” said Katie Holmes, who plays Jonas’s mother. “She’s just lovely and she’s very wise… very, very wise.” Bridges was impressed by Swift’s professionalism in addition as well as performance: “She was exhausted [from travel when arriving on set] but she was such a pro, and so up for being involved and playing and took right to the acting. I hope she continues the acting.”

The Giver opens Aug. 15.
