The Next Files: Amanda Seyfried

What’s up next for the star of ”Mamma Mia!” and ”Big Love”

Posted on

THE HOT PROJECT
Mamma Mia!

BUT YOU KNOW HER FROM…
Big Love, Mean Girls, Veronica Mars

Why she’s here to stay
The 22-year-old’s magnetic turn as Big Love‘s conflicted child of polygamy gives us shivers.

The road to Mamma Mia!
”Singing was my first love. I trained classically from 11 to 17. When I found out Meryl Streep was cast as the mom, I was like, ‘Yeah, this is my role!”’

Double threat?
”[ABBA’s] Benny Andersson said he’d write music for me. But I don’t care to be a singer. I don’t want anything to get in the way of my acting career.”

Coming up
Season 3 of Big Love and zombie flick Jennifer’s Body with Megan Fox, both in 2009. ”We make out in one scene. That’ll probably be the trailer, in slo-mo.”
