Amy was raised in the Yukon Territory of Canada’s Far North. Growing up in a small town, Amy found a passion for acting at the young age of 14 after being cast as Cecille, the French maid, in a community theater production of Annie. She only had one line (“Blue…no red’s her color, I think!”), but that was all it took: Amy was hooked.
At 17, Amy moved to Montreal to attend the National Theatre School of Canada, the nation’s most prestigious acting conservatory. During the intensive, three-year program, Amy honed her skills in classical theater, studying everything from Shakespeare to clown to Commedia dell’Arte.
Since graduating from NTSC, Amy has worked consistently in film, television and theater in both the United States and Canada. Over the years, Amy’s had the pleasure of working with many renowned film directors; Martin Scorsese, The Farrelly Brothers and Roland Emmerich, to name a few.
Amy’s impressive list of television credits include guest star and recurring roles on shows such as Mad Men, Big Love, C.S.I., Gilmore Girls, Touch, The Closer and N.C.I.S. She has also been a series regular on ABC’s Big Shots and the critically-acclaimed HBO Canada series, Call Me Fitz, for which she received a Canadian Screen Award nomination.
While film and television make up the bulk of her career, Amy still finds time for her first love, the stage. Amy’s various theater credits include roles in All My Sons (Geffen Playhouse), God of Carnage (La Mirada Theater for the Performing Arts), The Crucible (Centaur Theater, Montreal) and the Canadian premiere production of Proof in her hometown (Guild Hall Theater, Whitehorse). She is also a company member of the popular Los Angeles-based comedy ensemble, The Magnum Opus Players.
Amy makes her home in Los Angeles, California with her husband.
