Amanda Schull as Cassandra Railly
Born in Honolulu, Hawaii, Amanda Schull stars in the anticipated Syfy series “12 Monkeys,” which is based on the iconic film following the journey of a time traveler (Aaron Stanford) from the post-apocalyptic future, who appears in present day on a mission to locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague.
Schull made her motion picture debut in the starring role in Sony Picture’s “Center Stage,” directed by Nicholas Hytner. Producers held a nationwide search before casting Schull. The role combined Schull’s talent as an accomplished actress and technically skilled ballet dancer. Following “Center Stage,” she returned to the San Francisco Ballet for several years.
Upon her return to film and television, Schull immediately booked memorable recurring roles on The CW’s fan favorite “One Tree Hill” and the wildly popular ABC Family series “Pretty Little Liars.”
Feature film credits include a lead role in “Mao’s Last Dancer,” directed by Academy Award nominee Bruce Beresford and featured scenes opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in Warner Bros. “J. Edgar,” directed by Clint Eastwood.
Currently, Schull appears as attorney Katrina Bennett on USA’s drama “Suits”, and has become a regular since finishing up season 4 of 12 Monkeys.
