As if fans weren’t freaking out about Lover the album already, Swift went ahead and dropped her "Lover" music video just hours before the album’s release. Yup. Swifties are being fed so well this week and this is only the beginning, y’all. Remember, Taylor Swift is performing at the 2019 MTV VMAs on Monday, Aug. 26. Ahh! I know, I’m excited, too. I wonder which song from Lover she’ll sing, but whatever she chooses, I know Swift is going to slay either way. Anyways, back to this "Lover" music video. Like most of Swift’s music videos, the MV for "Lover" had so many Easter eggs hidden throughout, which had fans talking and analyzing what they could all possibly mean. One question they’ve also been asking is, who’s the guy in Taylor Swift’s "Lover" music video?
If you’ve been to see Taylor Swift in concert lately, you’ll definitely recognize him. Even if you haven’t seen Swift in concert in the past few years, or at all (like me), you’ll probably recognize him from all those 1989 and Reputation tour videos on YouTube you’ve probably watched. (C’mon, I know your YouTube history is full of them!)
So, who is he? The guy in Swift’s "Lover" music video is named Christian Owens and he’s a dancer and friend of Swift’s. He joined Swift on both her 1989 and Reputation tours as a dancer. During the Reputation tour, Owens had a particularly special moment for Swift’s "King of My Heart" performances. He played Swift’s love interest during the live performances and also danced alongside her.
