Every now and then we are introduced to a rare talent. For over two decades British native Amanda Foster has dominated the film and TV industry appearing in over 250 feature films, television, commercials and video productions.


John Byrne from The Stage says it best


“ Her IMDb profile reads like a roll call of recent blockbusters!”


Like a breath of fresh air Amanda debuted her talents as a model, before honing her craft in theatre. Not content with simply being another actress in the fold, Amanda soon discovered a void in the industry whilst filming “Patriot Games” with Harrison Ford. With no leading black stunt women taking centre stage in the UK, this was soon to be an area she would master and indeed dominate. After six years of intense training, Amanda joined the elite of the UK stunt register in 1997.


Her skills and talents have thrust her in to high demand. Having worked with iconic Hollywood directors such as Martin Scorsese, Danny Boyle and Steven Summers. Amanda’s poise and impressive stunt diversity have seen her double for starlets such as Halle Berry, Beyonce, Whoopie Goldberg, Vivica Fox, Naomie Harris, Nia Long, to name only a few.


Amanda has recently completed filming for the highly anticipated “World War Z” staring Brad Pitt, and has just started filming “All you need is Kill” with Tom Cruise.

With such an enviable portfolio of films ranging from Scorsese’s “Hugo ”“Prince of Persia” five instalments of the “Harry Potter” franchise. Including “Deathly Hallows” part 1 and 2 ”Ninja Assassin”,  “Children of Men” , “Fantastic Four Rise of the Silver Surfer” her blockbuster credentials are endless.


Amanda’s talent has been honoured at Paramount Studios in LA , where she won the highly acclaimed ” Taurus World Stunt Award “ In 2003 for her work on the 007 James Bond movie “Die Another Day” doubling Halle Berry.


Screen Nation Awards 2011 payed homage to Amanda with the coveted Vanguard award recognising her outstanding contribution to film and television.


January 2012 The 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards honoured Amanda and the stunt team who won the Award for Outstanding Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture.


Amanda’s directing debut of the short film  “KILLER HEELS” was accredited at the Cannes Film Festival May 2012, and  Marbella film festival October 2012.
