I needed to thank her for everything she’s done and tell her that her tune ‘The Greatest Day’ helped me through my mum’s passing this October from uterine cancer and she immediately lit up and said, ‘I saw your post on Tumblr! That’ s you’re here! I’m so, so, sorry you needed to go through that and I’m sorry I couldn’t play that tune.’
“I simply couldn’t believe she was real, and it was all a haze and so quickly, and her folks hurried us along for a picture.”
In a different interview together with the Daily Mail, Sturgess stated that she didn't choose to dress in exactly the same fashion as Swift but that the likeness within their faces meant they got compared to one another regardless.
“I believe it’s only the facial structure. I’ve got larger lips and little eyes like her. Occasionally I won’t wear make-up in any way and still get told I look like her.”
