Fans got a taste of what they can expect in Taylor Swift’s video for her Speak Now single, “Mine.” So far, we know she meets a cute boy (Toby Hemingway) and falls in love with him, and the two endure the ups and downs of being in love. The video’s director, Roman White, said that the clip features a lot of time travel, which would explain how those two crazy kids end up with kids of their own in the end.
“There’s a lot of time travel in this video, which is fun,” he told MTV News. “No DeLoreans [referring to the movie 'Back to the Future']! Time travel is horrible for the hair, but fun nonetheless … It’s evolving their family story.”
What fans might find most interesting in the clip is seeing Swift in a wedding dress, images of which were leaked online earlier this summer when Swift shot the video in Maine. “On the second day, we shot a lot of the stuff,” White explained. “The second day with her and Toby, [we shot] them moving in together, all of their stuff, where they’re kind of living their life, them with their kids, them having their huge argument, kind of the moment at the end. We shot the wedding shot, which is very interesting … those were the pictures that leaked first, which was very odd.”
What viewers will notice most is the undeniable chemistry between Swift and her leading man, British actor Toby Hemingway , who was handpicked by Swift to star in the video. “She had mentioned Toby, so we started looking into him. He’s a really great actor,” White said. “They worked really well on camera [and] it’s always fun having someone around who’s British. It just makes everything sound cooler. It definitely comes off like they were a family. He was great to work with.”
