In a new interview with BackstageSeyfriend admitted it while filming her latest miniseries The Dropout — which earned her an Emmy nomination — for which she auditioned Evil also.

“I have dreams that I’m still auditioning for Evil‘ said the Emmy-nominated actor.

“Last summer when I played Elizabeth [Holmes on The Dropout]I personally auditioned on the weekends to play Glinda in the film version of Evil,” she explained.

“Because I wanted it so bad I was like, ‘You know what? Yes, I have to play the last scene of The Dropout on Tuesday. I give you my Sunday.’ I literally bent over backwards while playing the hardest role of my life.”

Though he lost the role, which would eventually go to Grande, Seyfried noted that the experience “teached me how far I’ve come as a singer, which I was dying to prove.”
