Sometimes, it can be hard to step out of your older sibling's shadow. When that older sib is mega-successful, internationally-famous pop juggernaut Taylor Swift, that shadow probably feels almost impossible to escape. But Austin Swift (opens in new tab), Taylor's younger brother, is well on his way to stepping into the limelight.
Austin, 24, just officially made his acting debut with the release of the trailer for his upcoming thriller, I.T., out Sept. 30. The film stars former Bond Pierce Brosnan and, in it, Austin plays a character named Lance. We don't know much else about his big screen debut, but if you look very closely, you'll spot him (albeit briefly) right around the 1:30 mark in the trailer.
This is the first real glimpse we've gotten of Austin Swift The Actor since Taylor gushed about his new gig like the proud big sis she is on Instagram last year.
"My brother @austinkingsleyswift just acted in his first movie and I'm all proud and stuff," she captioned (opens in new tab) the pic.
We can't wait to see more of Austin's acting chops when I.T. hits theaters this fall.
