In November 2018, the What I Like About You alum was featured in a interview for Paper Magazine. Amanda spoke candidly about her mental health, her past drug abuse, and her desire to return to the acting world.

However, the increased media scrutiny proved to be overwhelming and by January 2019, she had checked back into rehab to cope with the stress.

During an interview, Amanda’s lawyer Tamar Arminak explained that her acting plans were on hold and she was focusing on her time at FIDM. “She absolutely is still studying and she’s so amazed with FIDM because, as a school, they’ve been so supportive of her this entire time,” Tamar said at the time. “She can’t wait to get back to the FIDM campus and be creative again.”
