LOS ANGELES, Sept. 11 (UPI) -- Taylor Swift congratulated younger brother Austin Swift on his first film role Wednesday.

The 25-year-old singer marked the occasion by sharing a photo of the 23-year-old actor on Instagram, writing, "My brother @austinkingsleyswift just acted in his first movie and I'm all proud and stuff."

Austin Swift will appear in an undisclosed role in the upcoming thriller I.T., starring Pierce Brosnan. The 62-year-old Irish star plays a businessman forced to defend his wife (Anna Friel) and daughter (Stefanie Scott) against a disgruntled tech consultant (James Frecheville).

Swift is the eldest of Scott Swift and Andrea Finlay's two children, and shares a close relationship with her brother. The singer references her sibling in her songs "The Best Day" and "Never Grow Up."
