I single out Seyfried because I shared her point of view about the other characters on the show, which imagines a neo-Mormon utopia in which women are denied their agency while men plot economic self-aggrandizement. Blessed with a very expressive face, her performance was the most recognizably human on the show, rivaled only by Ginnifer Goodwin's as the youngest of the three wives.
I recently saw Seyfried (again) play the dumbest of the "Plastics" in "Mean Girls." It would have been easy to play this role in broad strokes, but Seyfried does it w/ dignity. She also plays the murdered Lily Kane on "Veronica Mars," a show I'm only beginning to expereince the pleasures of.
According to IMDB, Seyfried is filming a movie called "Solstice" with "One Tree Hill" star Hilarie Burton. Hopefully she'll have even more big screen work in the near future...
