The Next Files: Amanda Seyfried

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.”
