Hey there! My name is Amanda, and I am an actress. And a Writer. Unless you know me personally, you probably haven’t heard of me. Yet. This is my website, and my blog has been chronicling my journey to becoming a working actress. It was something I always wanted to do, but it took a while to finally own it and dedicate myself to the pursuit. Since then, I have been learning everything I can and studying with the best teachers I can find, especially if it takes me on incredible trips to London, Los Angeles and New York City.
I truly believe that every day on set is a good day. Be it a webseries, an independent horror film, a short or even background work; I love it all. My favorite days are when I actually get to have lines and live a life that isn’t my own, but even being surrounded by other actors, and watching them do their thing makes me feel so lucky and inspired.
When I am not hanging out in front of the camera, I love being in the audience, whether in plays, movie theaters or in my own house. I can carry a conversation on nearly every TV show and movie that has aired or been released during my lifetime and know way too much about the people in them. I also do lots of reading and have started turning my stories (that I am always writing) into books. The first, Shards of Glass, will be out in August.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have the most amazing day!
