Amanda Bynes is a singer, actress, and dancer who were discovered by the public in 1997. She is currently starring as herself in the movie, “New York”, which was directed by Wes Ball. Today she has become one of the more high profile female celebrities in America, thanks to both her acting talents and controversial issues about her personal life. In 1998, Bynes was arrested and charged with DUI after driving a friend’s car. The charges were later dropped when Bynes entered a rehabilitation center in lieu of enrolling in a drug rehab program. She has since been involved in other legal battles and has been sentenced to jail numerous times.
Throughout her acting career, Bynes has established a variety of aliases and gone through a number of dramatic altercations. She has been named as one of the “most popular faces” by People Magazine in recognition of her appearances on the TV series “Raising Helen”. Bynes went on to play the lead role in the movie “Casting Unknown Identity”, as well as guest starring in “A Fish called Wanda” and “The Perfect Score” with Goldie Hawn. These roles helped make Amanda Bynes one of the most popular and notable faces in the entertainment world today.
Prior to landing her role on “Raising Helen”, Bynes had a chance to showcase her acting skills on the small screen. She had small parts in the films “My Fair Lady” and “People Will Pay For My Throat” as well as recurring appearances on “Happy Days” and “The Simpsons”. This experience certainly gave Bynes some insight into what types of roles she would be able to handle and master over the years. Most notably, Bynes played the character of downtrodden single mother in the film “CD.” For anyone who sees her performances on television, these early experiences and roles are what will leave her with the distinct impressions of an excellent stand-up comedist.
After taking a turn at lending her voice to several animated television shows, Bynes decided it was time to make a comeback as a real life person. She has been cast in the lead role in the new film “Singh in the Mood” as well as the remake of the hit movie” Thousand Oaks”. While many people may not realize it, Bynes has actually been working in the Los Angeles area since the seventies. In fact, her first major role was in the musical comedy “Annie Come Alive” which was one of the few movies that tackled the topic of single parenting. This film was not well received upon its release and did not do well at the box office.
