Early Bio & Education

Amanda, whose full name is Amanda Felicitas Stepto, was born on Friday, July 31, 1970, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. She is 51 years old now. Amanda’s zodiac sign is Leo. Meadowvale, Mississauga, was where she spent her younger days.

Stepto was a rock and roll enthusiast as a teen, having encountered the genre during a show by The Police in Oakville, Ontario, in August 1981, when she became fascinated by the fashions of the punks in the crowd. Duran Duran, Billy Idol, Sex Pistols, Platinum Blonde, and The Cult were among her favorite bands and performers in 1987. Stepto began wearing huge spiked hair at 14 to connect with the hippie movement, claiming Colin Abrahall, frontman of the UK82 band GBH, as her primary aesthetic influence.

She graduated in dance and minored in theater throughout her three years at the Etobicoke School of the Arts. During her stint on Degrassi, she relocated to a Mississauga school to continue her education.

Career

Stepto’s acting teacher informed her students at Etobicoke School of the Arts about a public tryout for the adolescent drama series Degrassi Junior High. Stepto didn’t have a portfolio or professional photos, so she had to put in the picture of herself, but her parents were skeptical about her getting the part because of her spiked hair. Nevertheless, Stepto insisted on having her photo shot with spiked hair. In the end, she got admitted into the first round of acting workshops.

When her character got pregnant, admirers mistook her for a real-life pregnant woman, and she got sent baby goods. As if she were a counselor, she was frequently sought sex and pregnancy guidance from parents and teenage moms. She took part in the Degrassi Talks mini-series in early 1991, shortly after the production of Degrassi High finished in 1990. She traveled throughout Canada with five other actors from the program to interview students about various problems. Stepto hosted an episode that talked about teen pregnancy, safe sex, and abortion.

Stepto showed an interest in continuing her acting career after Degrassi, focusing on portraying “psychotic” characters. Nonetheless, she later claimed that her participation in Degrassi had caused her to be typecast. She said she would undermine her screenings to avoid landing roles in shows she didn’t like, such as the CBC musical drama series Catwalk, which she called a “cheesy low-budget program,” and that this may have led to her inability to continue performing. Stepto appeared in Colin Thomas’ play Flesh and Blood, about a group of young adults struggling with AIDS in the early 1990s.
