Educated in Stockholm Academy of Dramatic arts, and now, many years later, Amanda has many years experience on set.
She moves between different genres but has a special ability to make young people sparkle, which can be seen in the crazy girl gang in the Netflix series Barracuda Queens, but also in the young adult drama EAGLES which she created for SVT. Much of what Amanda creates also has a comedic twist – which is why she loved directing The Bonusfamily.
Amanda’s films are often visually appealing and has a strong shape, but the actors performance is always naturalistic. She’s always aiming to combine this, she wants to both touch and seduce! This is perhaps most noticeable in the monster film Nelly Rapp, which was nominated for 5 Guldbagge awards. Also her debut Unga Sophie Bell, whose insta-friendly style can be described as pink, fluffy and glitter got a nomination for best female actor, Felice Jankell. In the world of the film, you can do what you want and Amanda seems to think that we have had enough of kitchen sink realism in our everyday life. That’s the reason she choose to eat Princess Cake for lunch whenever she gets the chance.
