American actress Chrishell Stause was born on July 21, 1981 in Draffenville, Kentucky. The part-Japanese and part-Spanish actress graduated with a theater degree from the Murray State University in Murray, Kentucky in 2003. She made her acting debut in 2005, when she joined the cast of All My Children. There, she plays the character of Amanda Dillon, originated by Alexis Manta.
The daughter of Trevor (James Kiberd) and Janet Dillon (Robin Mattson), she is sly, cunning and manipulative, yet trustworthy to those who she deems deserves it. The family moved to Colorado and Amanda returned to Pine Valley in 2005. JR was drunk when he got into an accident involving Amanda. Babe took the fall for JR, thus heightening the level of enmity between her and Amanda. After the accident she began experiencing black outs and memory flashes of bad things that had occurred. She suspected that she was responsible for all the bad things that had happened. She confessed her blackouts to Josh Madden who later framed her up for a crime she was just ordered to commit. When her mother was accused of the crimes going on in Pine Valley, Amanda still stood by her mother’s side and defended her out of maternal loyalty.
She recently wrapped up production for her first film, the drama Scaring the Fish.
