Catching Up with Amy Savannah
© May 2, 2012
Amy Savannah is a very busy lady. We will soon see Amy as Shila Hicks in the new web soap opera series, Proper Manors, scheduled to debut May 31st, 2012. While her role in Proper Manors is keeping her busy, Amy is juggling a number of other projects.
Amy is currently working in a supporting role on a major theatrical production, Left Turn, with an all-star cast including Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler, The Pope of Greenwich Village), Roberto Escobar, and Luis Guzman (The Count of Monte Cristo). In the upcoming feature film, Red Hammet, Amy has been cast in a supporting role. She also has the lead role in an independent feature, Dead Fury. In addition, Amy has recently been offered roles in several upcoming independent short films including, The Death of Something, and she is finishing up production on her lead role in the independent feature film Lust of the Vampire Girls.
Amy Savannah was born August 7, 1986, in Vallejo, CA. She began her stage acting/singing theater career at the age of four. Amy recorded her first full length album "Poetically Broken" at the age of 20. In 2009 Amy moved to UT where she began her film career and has worked on several shorts/independent features. With her recurring role as Shila Hicks in the new web soap opera series, Proper Manors, debuting May 2012, Amy is helping to break new ground on the Internet.
Off camera, Amy is the mother of two children, a daughter and son. Their father, a devoted dad who usually plays a very active role in the children's lives, is in the U.S. Air Force and is currently being deployed to Korea for a year.
In spite of all the demands of her career, Amy’s real love lies with her family. When we spoke with Amy she told us how dedicated and devoted her parents are to her, her children, and her career. “My parents moved out to UT so they could help me, help with the kids, and help be there for them when I’m working. Two young children can be a handful.”
Amy went on to talk about the unconditional love and support she received as a child. “My Dad would bring a video camera to school and video me and my friends. It was SO embarrassing. But now, I look back and realize just how much he loved and supported me and how much he was always showing it. They are still supporting me with their recent move to help out with the kids. More parents should invest in their children like my parents did with me.”
Having a strong inner drive, Amy is taking the steps needed to fully realize her talents and potential. She believes in setting benchmarks and being the example for others. “I grew up in a very positive atmosphere. I try to live every day with positive intent and try to set a positive example for others.”
