Born in Honolulu, Hawaii, Amanda Schull stars in the Syfy series “12 Monkeys,” based on the hit film which follows the journey of a time traveler from the post- apocalyptic future who appears in present day on a mission to locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will eventually decimate the human race. Schull just wrapped principal photography on Season Four of the show.
Schull made her motion picture debut in 2000, starring in Sony Picture’s Center Stage, directed by Nicholas Hytner. Producers held a nationwide search before casting Schull.

Upon her return to film and television, Schull immediately booked memorable recurring roles on The CW’s fan-favorite “One Tree Hill” and the wildly popular ABC Family series “Pretty Little Liars.” Feature film credits include a lead role in Mao’s Last Dancer, directed by Academy Award Nominee Bruce Beresford, and she was featured in scenes opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in Warner Bros.’ J. Edgar, directed by Clint Eastwood.
