    Past: Receptionist at MODE


    Amanda is the twenty-something daughter of an investment banker. From him, she learned how to manipulate with dexterity and may have gotten her hands dirty in a little embezzlement. She has spent years battling her insecurities and eating disorders in a bid to become her ideal woman. These tendencies frequently flare up when she is under stress and resorts to binge eating.

    Despite having a string of boyfriends, her only real friendship seems to be with Marc. Together, they share in daily gossip, mockery and plotting to ingratiate themselves with the management of the magazine. She has also demonstrated a friendly capacity toward Betty on occasions when it was in her interest to do so, even letting her guard down and confessing her feelings in confidence. She quickly snaps out of this however, usually with a few vicious remarks.

    She maintains strong feelings for Daniel Meade and, while the two have shared a casual sexual relationship, she seems resigned to the fact that he scarcely recognizes her existence. Recently, she has tried to pull away from him and find a more lasting relationship.

    In a bid to better her life, she planned the luxurious office Christmas party and managed to impress Betty enough to win her position when she was leaving. While she was recently promoted to the position of assistant editor, that position is not expected to last.

When he begins to claim what duties he will handle, Alexis interrupts and insists that she doesn’t want anything to do with the business. Daniel leaves the room and Wilhelmina rushes over to Alexis. She tells her that she has to take what belongs to her and that she can’t leave Mode. Wilhelmina then tells her that she should take her office and operate from there.

Marc gets a text message on his cell phone informing him that his mother is in the building.

Amanda struggles to move around the office but refuses to take it off.

    Alexis interrupts the board meeting and yells to Daniel that they have a big problem! She tells Daniel that Grace Chin has never lost a case before and that Bradford is a murderer. She blames Bradford for causing their mother to drink hand sanitizer, for making Daniel feel miserable all those years and for preferring that she be dead vs. standing there in a dress. As Marc listens from around the corner, Daniel tells his sister that he doesn’t know anything about Grace Chin.
