* WTHCastingAgency: What is Creator/MerylStreep doing in a musical?
** [[SoMyKidsCanWatch She went to see the stage show with her daughter for her eleventh birthday and got kinda hooked on the idea.]] Also, one critic commented once on how she keeps touching her face and using her expressions mostly for acting, which makes it seem as if she's just a head. One journalist in Israel asked her if she was trying to prove she has a body as well, and Streep replied this might have been the case.
** Better example would be PierceBrosnan. Clearly he was cast to be swooned over rather than listened to.

** It's also implied that Donna might be lying about not knowing who Sophie's actual father was, since [[spoiler:Bill]] commented that he thought his great-aunt who Donna had taken care of before she died had left her money to family. [[spoiler:Because, of course, she ''did''.]] It seems rather unlikely that the great-aunt at least didn't figure it out eventually, though Donna might have been in denial.

Of course, whether Donna would be in a situation to find out about the recessive trait of blonde hair is up for grabs as well.

*** YMMV on that. Her ''acting'' was good in the take...

* FridgeBrilliance: Anyone familiar with genetics is capable of guessing that [[spoiler: Bill]] is Sophie's father, as confirmed by WordOfGod, as he's the only blond in Sophie's three possible fathers. As blond hair is a recessive trait which Sophie shares with her mother, the other two would be pretty unlikely.

** DNA tests didn't exist in the late 60s, when she got pregnant. They could only do a blood type match, and if any of the men shared a common one (or Sophie had the same one as her mother) it wouldn't tell them who her father was.

The question was sidestepped in the film version, where one of the fathers says they could get a test done, but they didn't really need to know.
