Amanda Righetti Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jan 1, 0001
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Actress Amanda Righetti personified the ability had by some to catch the eye of television producers with one small, recurring part and spin that into a more permanent and higher-profile success. A native of St. George, UT (and the youngest of eight children), Righetti grew up in Las Vegas, NV, and enjoyed her first taste of fame with a multi-episode run as Hailey on the Fox network's prime-time soap opera [[Feature~V291496~The O.C.~theoc[tvseries]]] Though it failed to evolve into a permanent role, it so impressed the program's producers that they insisted on retaining Righetti for a follow-up assignment -- as a regular character, Tessa Lewis, on the Fox ensemble drama [[Feature~V308320~North Shore~northshore[tvseries]]] (2004). Unfortunately, that series only lasted one season, as did a regular role on a Fox follow-up series, [[Performer~P224441~Jon Harmon Feldman~jonharmonfeldman]]'s experimental drama [[Feature~V334988~Reunion~reunion[tvseries]]] (2005). Righetti then moved into features, becoming something of a scream queen in horror-oriented work. Projects included director [[Performer~P401760~Victor Garcia~victorgarcia]]'s [[Feature~V411035~Return to House on Haunted Hill~returntohouseonhauntedhill]] (2007) and the 2009 remake of the iconic 1980 slasher film [[Feature~V18658~Friday the 13th~fridaythe13th]]. She also returned to regular TV work in the fall of 2008, with a supporting role as rookie Grace Van Pelt on the detective drama The Mentalist, opposite [[Performer~P199704~Simon Baker~simonbaker]]. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
