At a very young age, Amanda was given the nickname “Sarah Bernhardt” in honor of her highly dramatic antics.  Her public performances began at 3 years old, offering heartfelt renditions of “Frosty the Snowman” on her front stoop.  She was famous for her feigned injuries, fooling her parents into thinking she constantly had fractured limbs.  This began her deep descent into “Method Acting.”

Fast-forward a number of years later, she graduated with a BFA from NYU’s Experimental Theater Wing and an MFA from Columbia’s School of the Arts, and spent much of her time immersed in the world of New York theater. Favorite roles include Juliet in Romeo and Juliet at Classic Stage Company, Cherie in Bus Stop, and a featured ensemble role in MONODRAMAS directed by Michael Counts at New York City Opera. She has also performed at Ars Nova, multiple times at the Midtown International Theatre Festival and the Fringe Festival, and traveled internationally to perform in a Shakespeare Festival in Germany and Chuck Mee’s Big Love in the Czech Republic.

Now living in California, Amanda has found paradise – sunshine, unlimited space and an electric blue Mini Cooper that lovingly zips her around to all of her auditions. She’s immersed in the world independent film, voiceovers and comedy, and is loving every minute of it.
