We all know that Taylor Swift is one very busy pop star, but that doesn't mean she wouldn't mind squeezing in some more acting.

The "22" singer has already had a taste of movies and television, having appeared in Valentine's Day, New Girl and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

"That's always something that's in the back of my mind, if the right thing came along," Taylor told me at the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of One Chance, the biopic about Britain's Got Talent winner Paul Potts.

"It would have to be something so amazing that it would take me away from writing songs and touring, which would have to be an incredible script," she said.

Her voice does appear during the end credits in One Chance. She was inspired to write a song after seeing an early cut of the film.

"The story just blew me away," Swift said. "I didn't know the story of Paul Potts. He's working a cellphone store and then ended up winning Britain's Got Talent."

She gushed, "You have to see it. It makes you feel so many different things."

The feelings were mutual. "It's a great song," Potts said. "It's great to have such an important artist to play on the end credits."

Potts won the first season of Britain's Got Talent in 2007 with his performance of "Nessun dorma."
