An interview with Amanda on Broadway.com from October 25, 2011 entitled, “Wicked Tour Star Amanda Jane Cooper on Early Glinda Prep and Popped Halloween Dreams”
Q: Have you ever dressed up as a Broadway character? If so, which one?
A: I have not dressed up as a Broadway character but I think I was prepping to play Glinda back when I was 6 years old (pictured above). Crown: check. Wand: check. Pink dress: check. Sensible sneakers: check!
Interview with Amanda on the “It’s the Soup” website.
Q: Were there any acting experiences that steered your acting ambitions?
A: All of my experiences accumulated into a realization that I have a knack for this. It’s absolutely what I was put on this earth to do. You know what’s funny? My freshman year in high school I was cast as a dancer in our Oklahoma! spring musical. That’s the first theater experience that I ever had where I looked around and said, ‘This is an awesome way to work.’ I didn’t even have any lines.
