Lily James on Meryl Streep… and ABBA are back!0
By - Posted 29th April, 2018 at 7:37 pm Entertainment

Actress Lily James, well known for starring in Cinderella, has come forward and expressed her deepest fears about the next Mamma Mia movie and that it may affect her entire future career.

The 29 year old is set to star as teenage version of Meryl Streep’s character Donna. With starring as the centre of the entire new film she has spoken out saying, “I’ve basically set myself up for the biggest fall. This will probably end my career, playing a young Meryl.”

The Baby Driver actress has discussed the entire situation in preparations and spoke out saying, “I keep having to tell myself, I’m not playing Meryl, I’m playing Donna Sheridan. Everyone who goes to see it will be judging me and I hope I didn’t make a silly mistake saying yes. But how could I not say yes?” She then continued on saying,  “This was an opportunity of a lifetime. They were letting me sing ABBA songs, on a boat in Croatia, and dance around. What do you say to that? ‘No, let me mull it over’? Of course I was on board … literally”.

The new movie is called Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again! It will see the return of most of the characters from the first movie, and will centre around Donna in her younger years on when she was pregnant with Sophie (played by Amanda Seyfried). New faces who are set to appear alongside Lily James are Jeremy Irvine, Cher, Hugh Skinner, and Josh Dylan.

Lily James has discussed that she did prepare for her role a lot harder than most of the other roles she has had in the past as this has an enormous amount of pressure to it. “I watched all the movies she did in her 20s on repeat because that’s the same age Donna is when I play her. Trying to study Meryl’s movements and her energy, her mannerisms, everything I could – I was writing notes and rehearsing the movements, going over and over.” James then expressed some regret about this, “It was basically an entire waste of time because you can’t learn any of it. It’s just her, it’s who she is, it’s why she’s the greatest actor of all time. If it was teachable, what she can do, they’d be churning out Meryls every week. But she is and always will be one of a kind, never to be repeated again.”

As for her future, she hopes to take on more modern roles and perhaps they may be more her style.

In recent news, the band ABBA have confirmed, on Instagram, that they are indeed returning to the studio and to recording! The decision to do so after 35 years has led to the addition of 2 songs. 1 song that is called Still Have Faith in You will be released in December and the next song will follow shortly after. The band have declared, “We may have come of age, but the song is new. And it feels good.”
