Amanda: I've always liked having a fixed schedule, and daytime actually provides that for a lot of actors. You can work during the day and know you're going to be out by 8:30 at the latest. You get your script a week beforehand.
Amanda: Growing up, I was involved in artsy things. I always loved to sing and dance. The acting came about when I was in middle school. I started doing little musicals. Then, in high school, it started to flourish and I really knew that I had a love for it.
