Amanda Pays made her film debut in Oxford Blues (1984) and she played a French nun, Sister Nicole, in Off Limits (1988) with Willem Dafoe, Gregory Hines and Fred Ward. She is known for her roles as Theora Jones in the film and television series Max Headroom and as Christina “Tina” McGee in The Flash. Pays also had a guest role as Phoebe Green in the episode “Fire” (1993) of The X-Files, in the episode “Cindy Plumb” (2006) of Nip/Tuck and in the episode “Black and Tan: A Crime of Fashion” (2008) of Psych.
She also appeared in some early 1980s music videos, including those for “Love Shadow” by Fashion, and “Smooth Operator” by Sade.
She made her TV debut in the dual role of Carla Martin and Christa Bruckner in the 1984 cable film The Cold Room, played Sarah in the 1985 miniseries AD (known as Anno Domini in some releases) and narrated the 1988 documentary Computer Dreams. She also appeared in the low-budget 1987 horror film The Kindred and 1989’s Leviathan. In 1985 she played the part of Nikki South in the television film Minder on the Orient Express, alongside Dennis Waterman and George Cole. In 2014, Pays was cast in the new series of The Flash to play a reimagined version of the character she played in the 1990 series of the same name.
She also met her future husband, actor Corbin Bernsen, and then embarked on the most important journey of her life, raising a family. 30 years on, with four grown children, Amanda and Corbin have enjoyed a nomadic life, traveling while buying, renovating and selling homes along the way. They have recently published a coffee table lifestyle book together, called ‘Open House, re-inventing space for simple living’, to show for it.
