DETERMINED TO SUCCEED:
Amanda would never have become an actress if her mum had
her way. "She didn't want me to go into the business
at all! I don't think she saw a nice side to it,"
she told a BBCi live chat.
When she's not acting Amanda likes rollerblading, athletics,
ski-ing and cycling. So yes guys, she really IS fit! When
she's not energising Amanda loves surfing the web - let's
hope she's looking in!
...AND THE FUTURE? Amanda's
keen to make it into the big soaps. "I'd like to be in
EastEnders and Hollyoaks. But Coronation Street or Emmerdale
too, because I'd like to try out the different accents,"
she told BBCi.
