In fact, when Hall was tapped to play the lead role in Kinky Boots, he told Entertainment Tonight that he had turned to Swift for reassurance.

“Taylor’s been the person I’ve been calling the most when I’m freaking out,” he revealed. “She’s been like, ‘Todrick, you got this.’ She’s like, ‘You’re the most fierce person I know.’ I’ve been strutting in my heels for her on FaceTime.”
