Many of you remember actress Amanda Seyfried from her role as airhead highschooler, Karen Smith, in 2004′s “Mean Girls.” Well, this budding starlet has since upgraded from sharing the silver screen with failed actress Lindsay Lohan to film legends, Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan (Not bad, huh?). After seeing the musical phenonemon that is “Mamma Mia! The Movie“, we were delighted by Seyfried’s performance and have decided that we must see more!

While attending high school in Pennsylvania, Seyfried made her acting debut with appearances in American soap operas, “As the World Turns” and “All My Children“. After graduating in 2003, she planned to attend NYC’s Fordham University, but was soon distracted by the opportunity to appear in her first film, “Mean Girls“. After getting her foot in the door with this role, Seyfried made acting a full-time career, smart girl!

 She went on to appear in the 2005 drama “Nine Lives” and has been seen in a number of American TV hits including “House“, “CSI“, and “Veronica Mars.” Thankfully for us, Seyfried has bypassed the party scene of young Hollywood (i.e. drugs, rehab, sex scandals) and has been able to make a name for herself in the film and television world. If only onetime co-star Lindsay Lohan got the memo!

After spending the last three years playing Sarah Hendrickson on the HBO series “Big Love” and completing

minor roles in movies such as “Alpha Dog” (2007) and “Solstice” (2008), it was time for Seyfried’s first leading role. She beat out a number of actresses including Rachel McAdams for the role of Sophie in 2008′s “Mamma Mia! The Movie“. Seyfried managed to hold her own among the all-star cast and (rightly so!) gained critical recognition for her performance.

Besides becoming the all-time highest grossing film in the UK, “Mamma Mia” sparked a controversial romance between Seyfried and co-star, Dominic Cooper. It has been rumoured that their affair ended Cooper’s twelve year (gasp!) relationship with his girlfriend. While you’re waiting to hear more about this fling as it develops (you know I’ll be on the look out!), check out Seyfried’s upcoming film, the romantic drama “Dear John” co-starring Channing Tatum. She’s sure to not disappoint!
