Early Life: Growing up in Nevada

Amanda actually grew up in Nevada, outside Las Vegas, raised by her parents of yet unknown identities and professions, the eighth and youngest of seven sisters and a brother whose identities and ages are also unknown; one of her sisters is a dealer in Las Vegas. It is known that she had an interest in acting from a very early age, and participated in numerous school plays during her teenage years. When she was 15, she was found by the International Cover Model Search, and employed as a fashion model. It is unknown which high school she attended, though she is thought to have matriculated in 2001. She didn’t attend college, and what may have factored into that decision is the fact that her acting career started when she was 12 years old.

From 2004 to 2005, she also starred as Tessa Lewis in 20 episodes of “North Shore”, after which she had two more supporting roles, and another in 13 episodes of “Reunion” from 2005 to 2006. One of her most prominent performances was in “Friday the 13th” in 2009, but the most important role in her career thus far began a year prior in “The Mentalist”, which she continued until 2015. While shooting the said show, she had a total of seven supporting roles, and three more after the show had ended, the last one being in 2017 in “Love at the Shore. At the moment, Amanda isn’t working on any upcoming releases.

They reside together as a family, although there’s no information about their house, so their living location is unknown.

1One time, I had this boyfriend who cheated on me. I cheated back and then we broke up and then got back together.
2There was that pretty-girl factor. People would ostracize me without knowing a thing about me.
3I had one of those "it's time to start living" moments recently, so I went to Amsterdam. It's funny because I partied a lot when I was younger, and I'm only 21, but I'm in a mellow stage of life right now.
4Spaghetti Righetti is my nickname to this day. My Reunion (2005) co-stars call me Spaghetti Righetti. It's grown on me with time. You can't really fight it.
5Guys blow my looks up more than I ever would. I guess I have issues with myself. I don't think I'm as pretty as everybody thinks.
