    Wtf worst drama ever Taylor has so no talent in acting. I’m glad she didn’t got book for any roles anymore. She better sticks to her fall back career aka. “Youtuberrr”

  2. Peach is a haterrr says:

    she is good at acting in my own opinion. she tried her best! please leave taylor alone. theres no need to be rude about it, you could of just gave her tips on what she could do to fix it. e.g ( oh taylor you should try this to help you be more comfortable) instead of hating and being very rude. oh and one more thing why dont you try to act in your first drama with a language that isnt your native language. its very hard to act in a different language than the one you were raised to speak, please be more kind to people is all i ask.
