Mastering Original Titles: A Discussion on Crafting to Prevent Plagiarism

Amanda Seyfried had her sights set on playing Glinda, the “good witch,” in the upcoming film adaptation of Wicked. She even went as far as to bend over backwards for the role, but it was ultimately given to Ariana Grande instead. Seyfried expressed her disappointment in not landing the part she had hoped for.

In an interview with Backstage, the 36-year-old actress revealed that she put in a lot of effort to land the role of the good witch in the upcoming film adaptation of Wicked. However, despite bending over backwards for the role, the part went to the 29-year-old Grammy-winning singer. Amanda Seyfried shared that she had auditioned for Glinda while filming The Dropout.

Amanda Seyfried has revealed that she once attempted to secure a lead role in the film adaptation of Wicked.

During an interview, Amanda Seyfried shared that she faced tough competition from Ariana Grande for the role of the good witch in the highly anticipated musical, Wicked. Seyfried, who was shooting for The Dropout at the time, found it challenging to land the role based on the West End and Broadway smash hit show. Despite having prior singing experience on screen with roles in Les Miserables, Mamma Mia, and Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again, Seyfried confessed that playing the hardest role of her life had her bending over backward. She even gave up her Sunday to practice for the audition.

Ariana Grande has been cast as the good witch in the upcoming film adaptation of Wicked. Speaking about her audition experience, Amanda shared that it was a significant moment for her singing career. She said that it taught her how far she has come as a singer, something she wanted to prove to herself ever since her debut in Les Miserables. Amanda made her film debut in Mean Girls at the age of 15 and starred alongside Lindsay Lohan and Rachel McAdams. Looking back on her first movie, Amanda fondly recalls the enjoyable experience of working with such talented actors and feeling like she had hit the jackpot in terms of making movies.
