Living out every Swiftie’s dream! Presley Cash has a longtime connection to Taylor Swift, but who is the music video star? Well, she appeared in the “Mean” music video in May 2011, and has made a resurgence in the Taylor universe following the release of Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) and the track “I Can See You” From the Vault.

“I’ve been counting down for months and finally the ‘I Can See You’ video is out. I wrote this video treatment over a year ago and really wanted to play out symbolically how it’s felt for me to have the fans helping me reclaim my music. I had my heart set on @joeyking, @taylorlautner and @helloimpresleycash starring in it,” Taylor shared via Instagram in July 2023. “Joey [King] and Presley had been in the video for ‘Mean’ when they were 9 and 13 and they are back and so ridiculously bad ass!! Taytay is INCREDIBLE in this (didn’t have a stunt double!) and shout out to @taylautner for being so awesome to hang with on set. The Tale of 3 Taylors. I always wanted to direct fight scenes/a heist storyline and had the most incredible time plotting this out with my amazing DP @selajon. So proud of this one.”
