She informed Backstage: “Last summer, while I was playing Elizabeth [Holmes], on the weekends I was auditioning in person to play Glinda in the movie version of Wicked – because I wanted it that much.”

Seyfried mentioned the expertise was nonetheless worthwhile, as she was capable of realise how she has developed as a singer, stories femalefirst.co.uk.
She added: “I think it also taught me how far I’ve come as a singer, which I really wanted to prove. Because ever since ‘Les Miz’ I was like, ‘I need to be better. I need to do better.’ So whatever comes next in terms of musicals, I’m finally prepared.”
She has made no secret of her want to play Glinda on the large display, and again in 2015 she spoke of her want to be a part of a possible movie adaptation of the ‘Wizard of Oz’ prequel.
With the movie coming into early phases of growth on the time, she mentioned: “I might be too old when they make it. Or if they make it sooner than later, maybe I’m not the right person.”
“I just still – I want it. I want to present myself and be a good candidate.”
