Amanda Schull was born in Honolulu, Hawaii and starred 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. Most recently, she has been seen in guest star roles in “NCIS” and “MacGyver” and starred in the Syfy series “12 Monkeys,” based on the hit film of the same name. Previously for Hallmark, Schull starred in “One Summer” and “Project Christmas Wish” for Hallmark Movies & Mysteries as well as “Love, Once and Always” for Hallmark Channel.”
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 that, 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,” TNT’s “Murder in the First,” created and produced by Steven Bochco, and the CBS reboot of “MacGyver.” She recently starred in the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries original “Project Christmas Wish.”

Schull starred opposite Milo Ventimiglia in the film Devil’s Gate, directed by Clay Staub, in which she plays a relentless FBI Agent tracking a paranormal phenomenon.
