Canadian actress Amanda Ives currently resides in Los Angeles after working extensively in Toronto's independent film and theater scene. A graduate of the University of Toronto's joint theater program with Sheridan College, Amanda also studied filmmaking at the New York Film Academy.
She directed the short documentary "True Spirit: The Story of the Holiday Helpers" which delivered an extensive background on a prominent Canadian non-profit organization. She was a featured soloist in the Canadian premiere of the hilarious musical comedy "Jerry Springer: The Opera!" Other theater credits include the musical "Something of Silver" (dir. by Tony-nominated Tony Tanner) and "The Journey of Truth," in which she played Susan B. Anthony.
Her favorite film credits to work on include two period pieces called "Wretched" and "The Prospector's Curse" and the edgy feature "I Hate Toronto: A Love Story."
Amanda is one half of the film production company AmandaSarahFilm. She is very proud of her first feature film, Three Roads, which she co-wrote, produced and starred in, currently in post-production. She hopes to continue to direct, write, produce and act in films that push boundaries and connect with people on a deeply human level.
Proud member of SAG-AFTRA.
