Working with Reese full-circle moment for this actor

Los Angeles, July 15 (Representative) Actor Taylor John Smith’s career has come full circle as the “Where the Crawdads Sing” star has a surprising connection to the film’s executive producer, Reese Witherspoon.In 2016, the actor starred in the pilot of a “Cruel Intentions” sequel series, playing the son of Witherspoon’s character Annette Hargrove. While the pilot wasn’t picked up, Smith finally got the chance to work with his (almost) on-screen mom, Enews reported. “It’s wild,” he exclusively told E! News’ Daily Pop. “The world is smaller and smaller and smaller.

And, obviously, growing up watching her films, getting a chance to work with her is like a dream come true. So, I couldn’t be more happy. She’s exactly how you think she is. She’s amazing.”His co-star Daisy Edgar-Jones said: “This is a story about female empowerment…I just think it’s very exciting to have someone like Reese sort of pushing forward and trying to change things for the better.”Smith added, “She’s like a mogul. She’s an incredible filmmaker and she really wanted to make sure that the people who love this book love the film. “Witherspoon isn’t the only big name attached to project. Like the “Legally Blonde” star, Taylor Swift was such a fan of the book that she wrote the original song, “Carolina” for the film, which premieres July 15. “Where the Crawdads Sing” premieres in theaters today.
