    • Amanda: (on the differences between the shows Gossip Girl and One Life to Live) Gossip Girl is shot as a single camera show. Meaning it’s shot like a movie, each week. Therefore there are a lot more takes and every scene takes a lot more time. One Life To Live is shot like a sitcom, with up to 4 or 5 cameras shooting at once allowing them to catch every moment from every angle. They are challenging in their own ways; very different but both very informative. I learned so much from Gossip Girl and am so happy to have the opportunity to learn more and gain new experience at One Life To Live.

    • Amanda: (on her role in One Live to Live) I play the role of Kimberly Andrews, a stripper from Vegas who comes to help her best friend through some troubled times. Although Kim is a bit manipulative and sneaky, she also has a really compassionate side for those she cares about. The friendship she has with Stacy Morasco is so real, so authentic, that its nice to see these moments of humanity and vulnerability through an extremely tough skin. Over all, Kim has been such a blast to play. She cracks me up. Everyday on set I’m actually laughing out loud.

    • Amanda: (on how her NYC experience doesn't relate to the one described in Gossip Girl) I spent a lot of time in Manhattan during my high school years but in a completely different scene than the one presented on the show. The NYC parties I attended definitely were not catered with a DJ.

    • Amanda: (on what she would change in her character in Gossip Girl) I actually love her. Personally, I think she’s hilarious in an extremely over the top way. Her overall sense of entitlement and snarky attitude is just hysterical. But, if I had to choose one thing, it would definitely be her blatant affection for headbands.

    • Amanda: (on her high school experience) I was the vice president of my high school theater club. Not exactly the “coolest” club in school but it was truly my home. We had the time of our life and didn't even think about what other people thought of us.
