The talented young 24 year old actress famous for her work on The Amanda Show and What I Like About You has quit acting. Amanda Bynes broke onto the small screen with the Nickelodeon show All That and stole our hearts with her ability to make us laugh. According to Pop Eater and Entertainment Tonight she has tweeted that she has quit acting.
Amanda Bynes: Biography: Amanda Bynes was born in Thousand Oaks California in 1986. Bynes began her career on the sketch show All That on Nickelodeon in 1994 which also featured the talented SNL cast member Kenan Thompson. Bynes was so popular that the network gave her her own show The Amanda Show in 1999. From The Amanda Show Bynes went on to What I Like About You with Jennie Garth from 2002 – 2006. While working on What I Like About You Amanda Bynes formed her own clothing line for Steve and Barry’s stores. Her film credits include She’s the Man, Hairspray and Easy A coming out in 2010.
Amanda Bynes: Comedienne: As I recall seeing her on All That and What I Like About You Amanda Bynes has a quick wit and smart ass yet charming demeanor. Bynes has a relate ability that is lacking from most young beautiful actresses. Unlike the Gossip Girl crew who is too intimidating for the normal teen to want to approach Amanda Bynes is beautiful, funny and real.
Amanda Bynes: Retired: According to Entertainment Tonight and Pop Eater Bynes tweeted that she is no longer happy being an actress and is retiring. Bynes noted in her tweets that she has only been other characters and not written her own. There may be something to not being able to be who she is especially from getting her start in a sketch show where she could once play many characters.
Amanda Bynes: Conclusion: Good for her. The business of film and television is a tricky one that can be daunting. All too often we see stars loose it because they feel they have lost control, are not having fun and can not keep it together. Amanda Bynes is stepping gracefully out of the spotlight after having made us all laugh for so long. This talented funny lady is welcome back in any sitcom but perhaps will go the route of Natalie Portman and study psychology. Whatever Bynes chooses to do her work ethic stands behind her as she is one of the classiest young celebrities out in Hollywood.
