Christine Baranski weighs in on the possibility of Mamma Mia 3 , what Tanya's been up to
Is Christine Baranski ready to be a dancing queen once more?
The actress, currently starring on HBO's The Gilded Age, strutted her stuff as Tanya in both Mamma Mia! and Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again — musical crowdpleasers that use the music of ABBA to tell stories of romantic hijinks and mother-daughter love on a Greek island.
The last film premiered in 2018 and Baranski has some ideas about what her Dynamo alter-ego has been up to in the meanwhile. "Tanya married," she asserts, before adding, "although by now she may be divorced. She may have gotten bored with this man."
But would she want to put that glittery spandex and those platform boots on again? No question. "If we could go back and have the same amount of good fun and be on a Greek island together filming and dining together at night at some wonderful trattoria or taverna, I don't think anybody would give you an argument," she tells EW.
However, the one problem with having star-studded casts that feature the likes of Meryl Streep, Julie Walters, Amanda Seyfried, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, Stellan Skarsgard, and of course, Baranski herself, is that scheduling can get tricky.
"It's a nightmare to get that sort of a cast together," she explains.
Still, she thinks it could be fairly easy to get them to commit to one night in the vein of similar reunions that have happened for Friends and the Harry Potter franchise. "I always think wouldn't it be fun just to get back together on that Greek island and maybe film all of us having dinner and telling the stories and singing all Abba songs?" she suggests. "And then just have it filmed as a great night out."
Honey, honey how that thrills us ...
