Dominic Cooper thinks it will be “odd” to work with Amanda Seyfried on the ‘Mamma Mia!’ sequel.
The pair started dating after meeting on the set of the 2008 movie, in which their characters are engaged, and Dominic admitted that although they have remained friends, gazing into Amanda’s eyes for ‘Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again!’ might be strange for him.
He told The Times’ Weekend magazine: “I think it will be fine working with Amanda again. I haven’t spoken to her for a while, but we always remained friends. Though it’ll be odd, gazing into each other’s eyes and singing an Abba song.”
Amanda, 31, recently welcomed her first child with husband Thomas Sadoski, while Dominic, 39, has been dating actress Ruth Negga for seven years.
While Dominic enjoyed working on ‘Mamma Mia’, he admitted that period in his life was a “very turbulent” time, both personally and professionally.
He said: “It was a very turbulent, but enjoyable, happy time and part of life. Everything! So to be going back there 10 years down the line, with the same group of people . . . It’s like the point of reflection of 40: it will be a marker.”
Dominic currently works with Ruth on TV show ‘Preacher’ and the pair met when they were both cast in a production of ‘Phèdre’ in London in 2009.
He said: “I met Ruth doing ‘Phèdre’. She was brutally honest with me about my acting. Once she stopped halfway through rehearsal and said to [the director] Nick Hytner, ‘Is he actually going to do it like that?’ Then we continued to get lots of jobs together, completely coincidentally.”
