Amanda Bynes

Amanda Bynes

Amanda BynesAmanda Laura Bynes (born April 3, 1986) is an American actress, comedienne and former show host on Nickelodeon. After appearing in several successful television series on Nickelodeon in the late 1990s and early 2000s, Amanda Bynes has moved into a film career, starring in several successful films aimed at teenage audiences, including her latest, She's the Man.

Amanda Bynes has been described as having an "Everygirl" appeal, embodying "both everything her teen fans dream of being and everything they know they really are, and they love her for it".

Early Life

Amanda Bynes was born in Thousand Oaks, California to Richard Bynes (a dentist who also practiced stand-up comedy) and Lynn Organ (a dental assistant). She has two older siblings, Tommy, a chiropractor, and Jillian, who has a psychology degree from UCLA. Amanda Bynes grew up "half Catholic and half Jewish", and identifies herself as Jewish.

Career

Amanda Bynes, who was trained as an actress by Arsenio Hall and Richard Pryor at a comedy camp, started acting at the age of 7, appearing in a television advertisement for Buncha Crunch candies. After taking acting classes, she began her acting career as a regular cast member of the show All That in 1996, and later became the star of The Amanda Show, both on the Nickelodeon channel.

Amanda Bynes

Amanda Bynes made her film debut in 2002's mild box office success, Big Fat Liar, where she played opposite Frankie Muniz. Her first solo leading role was in 2003's What a Girl Wants, which also performed fairly at the box office. Subsequently, Amanda Bynes starred in the WB Network's sitcom What I Like About You and had a voice part in 2005's CGI animated comedy, Robots.

Amanda Bynes came into the public eye during the time period when popular teen actresses Lindsay Lohan and Hilary Duff became well-known. Although she is often compared with them, Amanda Bynes has commented that "It's like being the hot girl at the high school party. I was never that girl. I grew up with terrible acne and feeling insecure. I was tall and skinny. I didn't feel pretty at all, and guys didn't even like me. That's why I got into comedy." Amanda Bynes has also said that her relatability to teenage audiences stems from the fact that she is "more similar to them than some... socialite or whatever".

Her newest film is She's the Man, a comedy based on William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. In the film, which opened in March 2006, Amanda Bynes disguises herself as her brother in order to join an elite boarding school. Producers had originally wanted to cast singer Jesse McCartney as Amanda Bynes' brother, noting a physical resemblance between McCartney and Amanda Bynes disguised as a boy, but McCartney was unavailable.

Amanda Bynes has also completed filming on another romantic comedy, Lovewrecked, which was shot before "She's the Man" but will be released after it, at some point in 2006.

Amanda Bynes has commented that she wishes to start appearing in more mature roles, and believes that she is still developing her acting skills and maturing as an actress, saying that she is "getting better as I go".

She briefly moved into an apartment in Hollywood, California, but has since returned to her family home.

Amanda Bynes is interested in drawing (she once painted a portrait of David Letterman as a gift to him) and fashion design, having commented that "I'm the girl whose biggest nightmare would be to lose my makeup bag while traveling".
