The actress told EW she was hesitant when she first heard about the project, but it ended up winning her over. Not only did she not find it awful, she went so far as to describe it as "amazing." She couldn't say enough good things about the making of it, either.
Seyfried reprises her role as Sophie in the film, which also brings back Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, and Stellan Skarsgard, among others. The reunion with her former cast mates after 10 years, she said, was "the time of [her] life."
"There's so much love and so much family that it's infused 100 times in this movie," Seyfried said. "It was so unexpected for me."
All that love apparently helped production go well, because the actress is thrilled with the end result. In fact, she even described the upcoming film as "better than the original." With that glowing comment, how can we resist it, either?
