The immensely talented Amanda Bearse was born in Florida in 1958. She studied acting at New York City’s Neighborhood Playhouse and landed her first major role in the popular soap opera ALL MY CHILDREN in 1982. She went on to feature in many independent films, and out of these, is most famous for her role in 1985’s cult classic FRIGHT NIGHT, in which she portrays the girlfriend of a young man who discovers to his horror that his next door neighbor is a vampire.

Only two years later, in 1987, Bearse was cast as Marcy Rhoades D’Arcy on MARRIED… WITH CHILDREN, a role that would rocket her into mainstream consciousness. While she was still regularly appearing on the show, she began directing it, eventually helming a total of 31 episodes. Since then, she has directed many other television shows and appeared in a few roles herself.

Amanda Bearse will be appearing at the Famous Monsters Halloween Convention alongside her FRIGHT NIGHT co-star Stephen Geoffreys.
