Personal Quote:

The outing [when she announced that she was gay] really was quite a freeing experience. I know that sounds sort of clichéd, but it really was very liberating. That one thing, that one big secret is out. For a lot of people, it was just a confirmation of what they thought about me. I mean, I look like the girl next door, but I was always kind of off-center.

Trivia:

Her initial success came with the role on the soap opera All My Children (1970) between 1981 and 1984 playing a role bearing her first name, Amanda (Cousins). See more »
