Disenchated's Amy Adams Felt Like Her Character Giselle 'Never Left' Her
It was 2007’s Disney satire "Enchanted" — the story of an animated princess named Giselle (Amy Adams) who is sent to New York City — that put Adams on the map, and she's since gone on to become one of the greatest actors of her generation. Talking about its sequel “Disenchanted,” the actress confessed that, to her, playing Giselle again was second nature.
"I feel like Giselle never left me. We were in the meeting with Disney and I just flipped right back into it and like talking about where I thought she was and I just was realizing that it was the right time. Like she was in there ready to come out," Adams said. Undoubtedly, Adams’ heartfelt connection to the character comes through once again in her earnest portrayal of Giselle.
In “Disenchanted,” Adams brings her dramatic chops to depict the changes in Giselle's innocent spirit after she has been in the real world for the past decade. Only such a well-rounded actress as Amy Adams could show the character's growth and independence over the years while still missing the simple joys of Andalasia.
