According to authoritative sources, this actress and production assistant has net worth of over $3 million, with her wealth being accumulated from her career in the entertainment field. She hasn’t disclosed any information regarding her  current salary, and assets such as houses and cars, but working at a rapid pace has allowed her to make a steady income over the last 20 years, and be able to take care of herself and her family. Besides that, Allen invests in her appearance, as she always looks smart when she attends events.

Husband Chris Hesse, Married, Children

When it comes to Amy’s relationship status, she married Chris Hesse on 5 September 2008, and it seems as if they’re living a prosperous life together; the couple has two children. Hesse is widely known as the drummer of the band Hoobastank, with whom he has released albums such as “Hoobastank” and “The Reason”. Their songs have also featured on numerous soundtracks for movies such as “The Recruit”, “Catwoman” and “Torque”.

Ethnicity and Background

When it comes to her ethnicity, Amy is Caucasian. She has a warm blonde hair color and sometimes has highlights, and her eyes are brown, which suits her complexion perfectly. Thus, it is safe to say that despite being in the fifth decade of her life, Allen is still looking youthful and radiant. Unfortunately, the actress doesn’t share many information regarding her early life and family, but she was a student of San Francisco State University. She isn’t active on any social media either, which makes it harder for her fans to get in touch with her. Allen was featured on the list entitled “Top Ten Hottest Girls In Star Wars”, compiled by the website The Top Tens, and took first place. Nonetheless, working hard throughout her career, Allen proved that she is more than just a pretty face. Her character was also featured on “Photo Tribute to Ayla Secura” on Nightly.net.

The former movie follows the story of Anakin Skywalker sharing a forbidden romance with Amidala, and was ultimately nominated for an Oscar award, and rewarded with 19 awards such as Saturn Award in the category of Best Special Effects and Best Costumes, BMI Film Music Award, Bogey Award in Platin and Empire Award.
