    “I Have A Feeling This Will Be In My Obituary”: Ethan Hawke Opens Up About The Significance Of His Cameo In Taylor Swift’s ‘Fortnight’

    Ethan Hawke‘s surprise cameo in Taylor Swift‘s ‘Fortnight‘ music video was a delightful treat for her fans and his. The actor appeared along with his ‘Dead Poets Society’ co-star, Josh Charles, seemingly as a tribute to the film with similar shades as the album The Tortured Poets Department‘.  

    Hawke himself has seemingly been overwhelmed with his appearance in the video and the response from fans after the collaboration. In a recent interview on Sirius XM’s The Jess Cagle Show, Hawke revealed that Swift aimed to establish a connection between ‘The Tortured Poets Department’ and ‘Dead Poets Society, paying homage to the latter. However, Hawke has seemingly developed some higher attachments to the song. Here’s what he said.

    Ethan Hawke is no stranger to Taylor Swift’s immense popularity. Appearing in her song may not have sounded like something out of the world to a seasoned actor like him. But after the video was released, he realized the enormity of Swift’s massive fan base, known as Swifties.

    Acknowledging the fanbase, Hawke humorously noted during an interview that appearing in the ‘Fortnight‘ video might define his legacy within her fans. Host Julia Cunningham highlighted the significance of his appearance in the song video.

    It’s so amazing because it’s a completely different realm for you,” the host said, adding that within “the whole Swiftie, larger culture — there’s a whole Swiftipedia — it lists you as, you know, appears in “Fortnight’ video, as if that’s the only thing you’ve ever done.”

    It’s funny you say that because I thought, as I was flying out there, I thought, you know, I’ve worked so hard in my life, and I have a feeling this will be in my obituary,” Hawke jokingly confessed, further suggesting that he “might get a few other mentions.”

    Speaking more about Taylor Swift’s vision behind the song, Ethan Hawke said, “I think there’s some kind of psychic connection she was trying to provide for the fans about The Tortured Poets Department and the Dead Poets Society.”

    She was kind of doing some little homage, and so she asked a couple of us old dogs to come out and make our presence known,” he added.

    Swift also herself directed the music video, and was delighted to have the experience of working with Hawke and Charles. The pop sensation described them as “the coolest guys on earth.”

    Paying a tribute to the Dead Poets actors on Instagram, Taylor wrote, “I’m still laughing from getting to work with the coolest guys on earth, @ethanhawke and @mrjoshcharles (tortured poets, meet your colleagues from down the hall, the dead poets).”
