Amanda’s in charge

ac­tress who plays Ca­su­alty’s con­nie takes on new role be­hind the cam­era

TV Times - - News -

Ca­su­alty star amanda Meal­ing has stepped be­hind the cam­era to di­rect this satur­day’s Hal­loween- themed episode.

the 49-year-old, who plays con­nie Beauchamp, says that she caught the di­rect­ing bug as a child ac­tress. ‘My first job at six years old was a Julie an­drews spe­cial with her hus­band Blake ed­wards [who di­rected the Pink Pan­ther movies and Break­fast at Tif­fany’s] and i was fas­ci­nated and in­spired,’ she says.

‘so with ev­ery di­rec­tor and crew i’ve worked with over the years, i’ve col­lected lit­tle bits of in­for­ma­tion. now i feel that it’s time to put that knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence into prac­tice.’
