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 and Ridley Scott. Amanda’s poise and impressive stunt diversity have seen her double for starlets such as Halle Berry, Beyonce, Whoopie Goldberg, Angela Basset, Vivica Fox and Naomie Harris to name only a few.
Current film projects for 2021 are Cruella, Venom 2 and Fast and Furious 9. Past film titles include Star Wars "Rogue One", Fast and Furious 6, Transformers “The Last Knight", Prince of Persia, five instalments of the Harry Potter franchise, Fantastic Four Rise of the Silver Surfer, her blockbuster credentials are endless.
Her driving skills appear in music video productions as far back as 50 Cent Ft Justin Timberlake “ Ayo Technology” to UK’s So Solid Crew’s "Ride Wid Us".
“I love to push myself and I am always looking for the next challenge!"
