Amanda Righetti is an American actress and successful television producer. Viewers learned about the talented girl through her expressive acting in the cult TV series The Mentalist, where Righetti played a key role.
Amanda Righetti was born in the American city of St. George in 1983. After the birth of the future star, her family moved to Las Vegas, where she spent her childhood with numerous brothers and sisters. The actress began the path to her future fame with a modeling career. A girl with an attractive appearance began working with those famous brands that created clothes for children. However, Amanda Righetti wanted to achieve more, and in the year when she turned 18 and came of age, the successful model moved to the metropolis of Los Angeles, where she decided to try herself as a film actress.
The beginning of creativity
Due to the fact that at first Amanda Righetti did not receive offers to shoot in films, she became a producer of commercials on local television. The first roles that the star received were episodic. She starred a lot in both popular and lesser-known TV series, such as “North Shore”, “Homecoming”, which filled the media space with unpretentious stories.
One of the first successful leading roles, Amanda Righetti received in the television project “There are no better places at home” in 2003. Then the actress thought that for a long time she was finally lucky, but when the pilot project was released, the series was closed. However, representatives of a large company "Fox" noticed a little-known actress and invited her to star in the famous television project "Lonely Hearts", where she worked for a little over three years.
In 2007, the actress managed to get the lead role in the film "Return to the House of the Haunted Night". This film was not shown in cinemas, but was immediately released on DVD. In 2009, in the movie "Friday the 13th," Amanda again managed to get the main role. This film was very successful at the box office, but the reviews from critics were poor.
Although Amanda Righetti actively starred in TV shows and movies, she still remembered about her personal life. And already in 2006 she married Jordan Alan, who was a screenwriter and also a director. The husband was 16 years older than his wife. However, this did not stop them from loving each other at all. The merry wedding was held in such a wonderful place as picturesque Hawaii.
After several years of marriage, Amanda gave birth to her beloved husband a boy in 2013, who was given the name Knox Edison. Although the actress was in a position, this pleasant circumstance did not prevent her from filming in the fifth season of the series “The Mentalist”. The fact is that the directors specially selected those angles where Amanda's pregnancy was invisible.
