Texas-raised Mandy Amano became "the face that launched 1,000 websites" after her Pepsi commercial premiered during the Super Bowl. This led to appearances in Maxim, countless online magazines, blogs, and comic books - most notably Shi and RoninHood.
A genre girl at heart, some of her favorite roles have been starring as "O", the ultimate modern femme fatale, in the neo-noir thriller Proxy Kill; the fierce and fiery fighter pilot "Oujo" in Squadron; and "Thalia", the little but lethal Black Ops vampire, in Blood Soldiers.
She landed a dream role when Steven Ayromlooi cast her as "The Princess" opposite the mighty Evan Parke in the film festival/comic con phenom The Sun Devil and The Princess, which racked up a show-stopping 20 awards - including 2 Best Actress wins for her portrayal of the strong, yet ethereal princess.
Described as "Audrey Hepburn... who could kick your ass" by Shi creator Billy Tucci, Amano is currently shooting a Western feature Silent Thunder as “Abigail,” the whimsical courtesan who also happens to be a deadly gunslinger.
Mandy's other passions include All-American Mopar Muscle, French Bulldogs, & kickass boots.
The cause closest to her heart is taking care of veterans, especially the work done by The Heroes Project, Hounds & Heroes, Homes for Our Troops, Warrior Foundation Freedom Station, Rock to Recovery, Final Salute Inc., VETPAW, VME (Veterans in Media & Entertainment), Stack Up Org, and Heroes & Horses... to name a few.
And her dream is to be Princess Leia when she grows up.
