The sequel presents young Bill, portrayed by Dylan, in a series of flashbacks that follow the time when Sophie was conceived.
Josh’s character is an adventurer and writer, who originally falls in love with Donna’s best friend, but has a romantic relationship with her after all. According to the musical of the same name made in 1975, Bill was Australian, but his nationality was switched to Swedish in the movies, and played by Stellan Skarsgård. Many details in the movie suggested that Bill fathered Sophie, although the truth hasn’t been revealed.
