Amanda Seyfried - A Woman of Importance

    "Mamma Mia! star Amanda Seyfried has beaten Lindsay Lohan to the lead role in a big-screen adaptation of Oscar Wilde play 'A Woman Of No Importance'. 'Mean Girls' star Lohan was first linked to the part in 2006, but she appears to have lost out to Seyfried, who will step back in time for the upper-class dark comedy, set in Britain's Victorian era.

    She will star opposite Sean Bean, who will portray womaniser Lord Illingworth, and Annette Bening will play his mother, according to Variety". Source:

    "What made Lilly particularly awesome (aside from the fact that her character was a free spirited wild-child) was Amanda Seyfried's performance. Seyfried busted onto the scene as the dumbest of the Mean Girls, and impressed in Nine Lives
    -she also notably appears on HBO's Big Love [as Sarah Henrickson]
    Like her Veronica Mars costar Kristen Bell, Seyfried is shaping out to be one of the better actresses of our generation. Seyfried played head wound sporting Lilly in her pep squad uniform wry and witty, no sap only sarcasm".

    "After Reese Witherspoon won her Best Actress Academy Award for "Walk the Line" (2005) and solidified her standing as one of Hollywood's leading ladies, a spot opened up for Hollywood's newest wide-eyed and blonde ingénue. Amanda Seyfried had the talent, looks and charm to fill that role, with scene-stealing appearances in teen blockbusters, edgy Indies, and compelling TV series.
    After making appearances on the big screen, Seyfried returned to television, playing Lilly Kane - the title character's murdered best friend - on "Veronica Mars" (UPN/CW, 2004-07). The actress' role involved flashbacks and visions, and it was often compared to the tragic Laura Palmer character in "Twin Peaks" (ABC, 1990-91).
    In 2007, Seyfried appeared in "Alpha Dog", a violent drama inspired by the true story of Jesse James Hollywood, a drug dealer who became one of the youngest men ever on the FBI's Most Wanted List. The film boasted a cast of Hollywood up-and-comers, including Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster, and Justin Timberlake, along with veteran screen actors Bruce Willis and Sharon Stone. That same year, it was announced that Seyfried was to star as Sophie, the lead role in "Mamma Mia!" a lavish film version of the long-running Broadway production, opposite Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, and Pierce Brosnan".
