What a nightmare scenario. That song “Voulez-Vous” and that scene is so traumatic because we spent so long learning that choreography.
I can pretend to be a good dancer. I didn’t do that, I was just mean, but if I had enough time [I can]… That was too much, it’s like the one ABBA song I just never want to hear. This scene in particular is so crazy… Oh my god, it’s like a fever dream.
Will there ever be a Mamma Mia 3?
Seyfried returned to the franchise ten years later in the 2018 sequel Mamma mia! Here we go again.
