Amanda Seyfried cut a casual figure in a long white coat with black buttons while exiting the Good Morning America studios in Manhattan on Thursday.

After promoting her series The Dropout, about the rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes, on ABC’s daytime talk show, the actress, 36, slipped out of a plaid suit into a pair of light-wash jeans and navy sneakers with white stripes.

While wearing a light pink face amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, she toted a large black quilted tote bag.

The mother-of-two has been busying promoting her drama, which hit Hulu in the US and Disney+ in the UK on March 3. 

Development began in 2019, when it was announced that a show would focus on the disgraced Theranos founder.

At the time of the announcement, Kate McKinnon was set to portray Elizabeth and serve as one of the project’s executive producers.

However, the Saturday Night Live cast member later dropped out of the production for unspecified reasons last February.

It was announced that Amanda had stepped in to fill the show’s lead role the following month, and Naveen Andrews was brought in to play Sunny Balwani not long after.

In addition to starring in the series, the Oscar nominee served as one of its executive producers.

Several other cast members, including Stephen Fry, William H. Macy and Laurie Metcalf, signed on to appear in the project in the following months.

The Mamma Mia star recently spoke about initially turning the project down during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, where she recalled that she was unenthusiastic about the show at first.

‘I promised I wasn’t going to give myself a hard time and try to completely mimic this other human being. It’d be impossible. And just not fun,’ she said.

The performer later changed her mind and spoke about Elizabeth’s desire to live privately in the midst of her highly publicized trial.

‘It’s crazy that she can still be such an enigma with all the information surrounding her,’ she stated.

Amanda also pointed out that, in addition to telling Elizabeth’s story, The Dropout would feature deeper themes about popular culture as a whole.

‘We’re investigating why we love a fall from grace, why we want to watch train wrecks,’ she said.

The actress went on to express that, although Elizabeth’s actions were not morally sound, she believed that the case surrounding Theranos had more unstated context than many would anticipate.

‘She made bad choices, and she’s got to be held accountable. But it’s nuanced, like everything and everybody,’ she said.
