Serayah, 20, who plays rising star Tiana, shared that it’s a blast getting into costume as the diva in training. “It’s really fun to play dress up as Tiana!” she told Us. “She gets to wear…some things that no one gets to wear on the show. She plays the edge, she goes the extra mile and it’s fun.”

As for her favorite look so far: Serayah, who’s one of the lucky members of Taylor Swift‘s squad, loved the white and gold minidress she got to wear with a matching fringed moto jacket. “Everyone died on set for that jacket!” she shared. “Even crew and lighting were like, ‘Dude, your jacket!'”
