Latest blogs and news on Amy Adams
Amy Adams was born August 20, 1975 in a military base in Vicenza, Italy to American parents Richard and Kathryn Adams. Growing up in Colorado and Minnesota, Amy was inspired to act, and joined several local dinner theater companies. In 1998, she was spotted by a Minnesota movie producer and asked to audition for the role of Leslie Miller in the comedy movie Drop Dead Gorgeous. With a successful film under her belt, Amy moved to Los Angeles and won the role of manipulative Kathryn Merteuil in the Fox pilot Manchester Prep, a TV update of the hit movie Cruel Intentions. Just as Amy was expected to become a household name, Fox buried the pilot due to its sexual content, forcing Amy to seek further work elsewhere.
