Taylor Swift praises "phenomenal" Conversations With Friends

The pop star is a fan.

As we eagerly await the arrival of Conversations With Friends to Irish screens this Wednesday, Taylor Swift has given the show her seal of approval.


The pop star's boyfriend Joe Alwyn plays Nick in the series, which is an adaption of Sally Rooney's novel of the same name.

Taking to Instagram to praise the show, the Cardigan singer shared an article by Time, which said that the adaption "breathes fresh life" into the story. On top of this, she wrote: "Can confirm it's phenomenal."

As well as Alwyn, Conversations with Friends stars Alison Oliver and Sasha Lane as best friends and college students Frances and Bobbi, respectively. The pair soon befriend an older married couple, Nick and Melissa (Jemima Kirke), and it's not long before Frances and Nick embark on an affair of their own.

All 12 episodes of Conversations with Friends landed on the BBC iPlayer last night, and Irish viewers will be able to watch it, two episodes at time starting from this Wednesday.


The first two episodes will air on RTÉ One at 9.35pm on Wednesday, 18 May, and they will also be available to watch on the RTÉ Player.

Recently, Alison Oliver spoke about filming the show's sex scenes with intimacy coordinator Ita O'Brien.

In an interview with Us Weekly, she said that O'Brien has "a really brilliant system that she kind of goes through with you when you’re approaching those scenes."


The Irish actress continued: "She’ll kind of go through the text with you in-depth and it’ll always feel like those scenes are there as extensions of dialogue and that it’s there to kind of continue the storytelling rather than anything kind of gratuitous or just kind of thrown in. She really puts you at ease and she kind of starts to talk about what shapes you want to make to tell the story.”
