Amanda Michelle Seyfried (pronounced "Say-Freed", IPA: /əmænə mɪʃɛl saɪfrɪd/Wink[1] born December 3, 1985 is an American actress and former child model. She is best known for her roles as Sophie Sheridan in the feature film Mamma Mia! and as Karen in Mean Girls; she has also appeared in Alpha Dog and in the television shows Veronica Mars and Big Love.



Personal life

Seyfried was born in Allentown, Lehigh County, Pennsylvania, United States, the daughter of Ann, an occupational therapist, and Jack Seyfried, a pharmacist. Her sister, Jennifer Seyfried is a musician in the Philadelphia organ-driven band, Love City. [2][3] She graduated in 2003 from Allentown's William Allen High School[4] and subsequently enrolled at New York City's Fordham University. As a teenager, she appeared on the cover of three Francine Pascal books.[1]. She is currently rumoured to be dating her "Mamma Mia!" costar, Dominic Cooper.

[edit] Career

Seyfried started her career as a model at age eleven.[1] From there she went on to acting uncredited in the daytime drama Guiding Light.[1] In 2000, she originated the role of Lucy Montgomery on As the World Turns. From 2002 to 2003, she played the role of Joni Stafford on ABC's All My Children.

In 2004, Seyfried achieved a breakthrough when she was cast as the most dimwitted of the Plastics, Karen Smith, in the popular teen film Mean Girls. In Mean Girls, she initially auditioned for the role of Regina George. She became the original casting choices for both the roles of Regina George and Cady Heron.[citation needed] She was then cast as Regina George's sidekick, and supporting lead, Karen Smith. The other roles later went to Rachel McAdams and Lindsay Lohan respectively. In 2005, she played the lead character in one of the nine parts in the movie Nine Lives.[1]

Continuing her television career, Seyfried was cast in UPN's Veronica Mars as the title character's murdered best friend Lilly Kane. In her role as Lilly, she appeared on the show through a series of flashbacks, dreams and visions, which portrayed her as a wild, stylish, and bubbly teenage daughter of a business executive. Lilly is sometimes compared to the character of Laura Palmer of Twin Peaks, who also was a deceased murdered blonde teenager who had sexual activities with adults and appeared through various flashbacks as the plot unfolded. While appearing often during Mars' first season, she also appeared briefly in season 2's premiere and finale. Seyfried originally auditioned for the title role on Veronica Mars, but lost the place to Kristen Bell and she ended up winning the role of Lilly Kane.

Seyfried has had minor guest roles on House, M.D., Justice, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and as Rebecca on Wildfire.[1] Seyfried is also a main character, Sarah Henrickson, in the series Big Love.

She played supporting roles in the 2007 films Alpha Dog and Solstice, and had her first lead role of the bride Sophie in the film version of the musical Mamma Mia!.

Seyfried has joined the cast of the dark horror film Jennifer's Body in February 2008, which filming began in March 2008, playing the title character's best friend.[5] Also in 2008, she played the lead role of Sophie in Mamma Mia! The Movie alongside Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan. Her musical performance in that film is also available on Mamma Mia! The Movie Soundtrack.

Especially for Mamma Mia! The Movie, Seyfried recorded a Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight) music video.
