Amy Benedict – Bio
In film (“Sneakers”, “Clairevoyant”) and on television (“thirtysomething”, “Grey’s Anatomy”, “CSI”, “24”), Amy has portrayed moms and murderers, bombers and babysitters, in a career that has spanned over 3 decades.
Born and raised in Columbia, Missouri, Amy attended Northwestern University in Evanston, IL to study theatre. As an undergrad, she started working as a commercial and film actress in Chicago to help pay for her tuition. When she was flown to New York her senior year to audition for “Biloxi Blues” on Broadway and then later that year to Los Angeles for a pilot audition for “My Sister Sam”, she decided, despite her love for the Big Apple, she would head to the left coast after graduation.
Amy landed in Los Angeles in the late 80s and hit the ground running with guest star and recurring roles on “Family Ties”, “thirtysomething” (as “Amy” the babysitter), “LA Law”, and numerous after school specials (due to her toddler-esque facial features). She was also cast as “Mary” in the cult-classic “Sneakers” with River Phoenix, Robert Redford, and James Earl Jones. Amy continued to work in television with a principal role on “General Hospital”, and in primetime on “ER”, “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine”, “24” with more recent credits on “CSI”, “Grey’s Anatomy”, “Law & Order: Los Angeles” and on her brother Rob Benedict’s streaming show, “Kings of Con”. Currently, she appears as “Eliza” in the movie “Clairevoyant” streaming on Amazon and guest stars as “Gail Morgan” on CBS’s “S.W.A.T.” in November, 2021. She also appears in the award-winning short “Danni & May” with her pal Julianne Dowler from The Collaborative! Coming up: Amy plays a kooky computer hacker in a streaming comedy series, “Corona Island” and an alcoholic mother in the film “Remy & Arleta”.
Theatre Credits include “You” with Lake Arrowhead Rep, “American Iliad” at the Victory Theatre, and Mary Zimmerman’s pre-Broadway production of “Metamorphoses” at the Mark Taper Forum.
Amy currently lives in the foothills above Los Angeles with her two awesome kids, her hard-working schoolteacher husband, Mark Brodie - and 3 very high-maintenance pets.
