Although specific information about the role Billie Eilish plays has not yet been revealed. However, in the latest teaser of “Swarm”, blonde girl Billie Eilish appears in a conversation with the character in the series, making fans eagerly wait for the singer’s acting debut.
Billie Eilish is back with a new product. But it is not a MV or music album. It’s a project that marks the first time the young girl tried her hand at acting.
On her personal Instagram, Billie Eilish posted a teaser for the drama series Swarm in which she appears. The clip quickly received more than 2 million likes and thousands of comments from fans.
Passion for acting helped Billie Eilish get her first role
On Saturday Night Live in December 2021, Billie Eilish admitted that as a child, she was passionate about becoming an actress. But then she fell in love with music.
However, Billie Eilish probably did not expect that this sharing would help her get her first role.
According to Janine Sabers, co-producer of Swarm, Billie Eilish was personally sent an invitation to audition by casting director Carmen Cuba after finding out her wishes.
Janine Sabers initially seemed hesitant because the owner of the hit song Bad Guy had no acting experience. But she was convinced after Billie Eilish’s audition.

The 19-year-old female artist once spoke clearly about her complicated relationship with fame at such a young age.
This mentality fits perfectly with his role in Swarm, a series about the dark side of fame.
Billie Eilish has previously appeared in several music documentaries and voiced an animated version of herself in the Simpsons short film, When Billie Met Lisa. But Swarm is more special because this film marks Billie Eilish’s first appearance in a fully scripted role.
Billie Eilish received positive feedback in her debut role
The Swarm series is produced by Donald Glover and premieres March 17 on the Prime Video platform. The work belongs to the short series genre, with only 7 episodes.
As a horror-type film depicting the dark side of “stan” culture (roughly translated: idol worship), the roles in the film are somewhat psychologically heavy and challenging for the actors.
However, right from the teaser, Billie Eilish’s eyes and acting style surprised many people because she expressed non-verbal emotions through her eyes and voice.
The conversation seems to be a hypnosis session when the singer’s character continuously asks questions and snaps her fingers to control the female lead’s mind.

The music star only started appearing in Episode 4, titled Running Scared. She plays Eva, revealed by IMDB to be a dangerous therapist or leader of an all-female cult.
Fans think that Billie Eilish excellently portrays the characteristics of an evil woman and can even take on more serious roles.
“She could definitely play a serial killer,” one person commented. Another said, “I’m sure Billie will be nominated for an Emmy.”

Broadcast from March 17 on the Amazon Prime Video platform, the female singer’s debut role immediately attracted attention and received a “rain” of compliments from fans for her acting skills.
In addition to Billie Eilish, Swarm also stars Chloe Bailey as Dre’s sister, as well as Damson Idris, Rickey Thompson, Kiersey Clemons and Paris Jackson.
Before the movie premiered, Billie Eilish’s name was not announced. This is probably a secret that Swarm wants to keep, avoiding being called relying too much on the female singer’s name to create attraction.
