Amanda Seyfried Biography

Birthdate: December 3, 1985
Birthplace: Allentown, Pennsylvania

Amanda Seyfried (pronounced Sigh-Fred) has been quietly carving out her own niche in the acting world with quirky character roles in Mean Girls, Mamma Mia! and Jennifer's Body. Check out Kidzworld’s biography of this talented young actress.


The Nicest Mean Girl

Amanda originally auditioned for the role of queen bee Regina George, but the casting director liked her better as Karen Smith, the spacey yet endearing member of the Plastics. Although she means well, Karen had a tendency to spout some silly one-liners like, “I think I have ESPN” and “You want to do something fun, you want to go to Taco Bell?”


From Model To Soap Star

Amanda says Mean Girls “made me known to most people behind the scenes, like the producers and the casting directors. When I would walk into a room for pilot season, they would already know who I was and that was really cool.” Although Mean Girls was considered Amanda’s big break, she was already involved in the industry. Amanda had been acting in soap operas for years. She had big parts in As the World Turns and All My Children and got comfortable in front of a camera as a child model.


Mamma Mia!

Amanda landed her first lead role in Mamma Mia! opposite acting juggernaut, Meryl Streep. Amanda had some theatre background (though she says Les Miz, not Mamma Mia is her favorite musical) but working with a big name like Streep can be intimidating. Amanda was impressed by Streep’s professionalism: “[Meryl] didn’t bring her life dramas on to the set,” she says. “That’s hard to do when you’re younger, because you don’t know how to separate work from play. I had a hard time doing that on [Mamma Mia!], but I brought that experience with me to shoot Jennifer’s Body.”


Jennifer's Body

Amanda was cast opposite the controversial Megan Fox in her newest movie, Jennifer’s Body, a horror flick that investigates fiery female friendships—imagine if your best friend was a man-eater. Now imagine she was a literal man-eater who ate your boyfriend! That’s just some of the drama Amanda’s character Needy has to deal with, and the end result is far from pretty. Check out Jennifer’s Body to see Amanda in a totally different light—Amanda proves her acting versatility by morphing from sizzling sex symbol to gawky bookworm.

If I had to make simple choice, I'd prefer to live in It's Kind of a Funny Story simply for the people who were held in it. Despite the location setting for the story, I feel as if I could very easily fall for the characters all over again, especially in an even more personal matter. But, of course, if I was  going with a straight up fantasy like everyone seems to be, I'd most likely go with a world like Dorthy Must Die series or Alice in Wonderland. Both being these magical worlds filled with quirky creatures and people, so how could you get bored? Oh, and of course let us not forget the plenty of harrowing fight scenes for freedom from the evil queens and her many brainless followers.

I would live in The Outsiders because it's a classic book. I would love to go on adventures with the gang and read books and watch movies with Ponyboy. (Because I too always believed I was the only one who enjoyed them.) I would love to open up to Johnny because he is such a kind hearted soul.
