Amanda Schull was born in Honolulu, Hawaii and was most recently seen starring in the final seasons of USA’s drama “Suits.” After recurring for six seasons as attorney Katrina Bennett,” Schull was promoted to a series regular for seasons eight and nine.
Previously, Schull starred in the SYFY series “12 Monkeys,” based on the hit film of the same name. The series was produced by Academy Award nominated producers Chuck Roven and Richard Suckle as well as writer/producer Terry Matalas.
Schull made her motion picture debut in the starring role in Sony Pictures’ Center Stage, directed by Nicholas Hytner. Producers held a nationwide search before casting Schull. The role combined Schull’s talent as an accomplished actress and technically skilled ballet dancer. Following Center Stage, she returned to the San Francisco Ballet where she was a member of the company for several years.
Upon returning to film and television, Schull immediately booked memorable recurring roles on The CW’s fan favorite “One Tree Hill,” the wildly popular ABC Family series “Pretty Little Liars,” and TNT’s “Murder in the First,” created and produced by Steven Bochco.
Feature film credits include a lead role in MAO’S Last Dancer, directed by Academy Award Nominee Bruce Beresford and featured scenes opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in Warner Bros.’ J. Edgar, directed by Clint Eastwood. Schull also starred opposite Milo Ventimiglia in Devil’s Gate, directed by Clay Staub, in which she plays a relentless FBI Agent tracking a paranormal phenomenon.
Additional television credits include the Hallmark Channel original movie “Love, Once and Always” and in 2019 reunited with Terry Matalas in a recurring role in the CBS reboot of “MacGyver.”
Schull resides in Los Angeles with her husband George, their son, and their dog Rupert.
