A successful child actress, Amanda earned international fame thanks to the Nickelodeon sketch-comedy shows All That and The Amanda Show, and rom-coms like What a Girl Wants and Lovewrecked.
Like other child actors of the era, Amanda struggled to make the transition from a star predominantly featuring in programs catering to kids and young adults to movies targeting a wider audience. Her troubles began around 2010, the year she retired from and returned to acting.

Amanda's much-publicized troubles began in the 2010s.
Lynn Bynes, Amanda's mother, was first appointed as her conservator in the summer of 2013, after the singer, actress, and media personality reportedly soaked her dog in gasoline on July 22, 2013. The same day, she reportedly started a fire on her neighbor's driveway.
Amanda sparked a handful of scandals in the 2010s. "I want Drake to murder my vagina," she tweeted in March 2013, via Entertainment Weekly. She was arrested for tampering with physical evidence, reckless endangerment, and criminal possession of marijuana in May 2013.
Amanda was granted control over her personal finances in 2017.
Amanda was given the chance to have more say in what happens to her assets in June 2017. The step didn't impact her mother's ability to make personal, including medical, decisions for Amanda.
The removal of the conservatorship is bound to enable Amanda to live an independent life.
