Deschanel heaps praise on Swift

Zooey Deschanel was won over by Taylor Swift when the singer made a cameo on her hit US TV drama New Girl, and insists the country music darling is “super-funny and really smart”.

Taylor Swift is “super-funny and really smart” according to actress Zooey Deschanel.

The I Knew You Were Trouble singer recently made a cameo on Zooey’s US TV drama New Girl and the pair instantly clicked.

The actress said Taylor was a natural on set.

“She’s awesome,” Zooey gushed to Us Weekly. “She’s super-funny and really smart. Very professional and we loved working with her.”

In the show Taylor is a surprise wedding guest at the nuptials of two characters, Cece, played by Hannah Simone, and Shivrang, played by Satya Bhabha.

Zooey wasn’t her only fan.

“She’s incredibly funny and was such a delight. We all were laughing, she was great,” Hannah said.

Co-star Max Greenfield hinted Taylor’s fans may see her do more than act on the hit show.  It appears she may also give a surprise performance.

“One word: Magic,” Max summarised. “I was like, ‘Just sing it, Taylor. Just sing it for everyone here. Sing it for the crew, do the foot stomp with it. And just let it go.’”

Taylor’s guest appearance will feature on the season two finale of New Girl. The episode will air on Fox network in the US May 14.
