American singer/songwriter Billie Eilish is making her acting debut in Prime Video’s new series “Swarm” which premieres globally, including in Kenya,  on Friday. Although Eilish has starred in several music documentaries and voiced herself in “The Simpsons” short film “When Billie Met Lisa”, her guest role in “Swarm” marks her first fully scripted role.

“Swarm”, which is set between 2016 and 2018, centres around Dre played by Dominique Fishback, who plays an obsessed fan of a fictional Beyoncé-based pop star. It was co-created and executive produced by “Atlanta” writer-producer Janine Nabers and Donald Glover, the latter of whom directed the pilot.

In the clip shared by Eilish on Instagram, her character is seen interrogating Dre and trying to figure out whether she hurt someone. Not much is revealed of the singer’s character beyond that.

The cast also features guest stars Chlöe Bailey as Dre’s sister Marissa and Damson Idris as Marissa’s boyfriend Khalid, as well as Rickey Thompson, Paris Jackson, Rory Culkin, Kiersey Clemons, and Byron Bowers.

All seven episodes of “Swarm” are streaming on Prime Video.
