Lynn and Rick Bynes welcomed a daughter, Amanda Laura Bynes, into the world on April 3, 1986. Amanda was born and raised in Thousand Oaks, California. Bynes has two siblings, a sister, Jillian, and a brother, Tommy. Amanda got her start as an actress at the age of 7. Amanda appeared in an advertisement for the Nestle Company. Her dream was realized when she was cast as a character on the popular Nickelodeon television series, “All That,” which aired between 1994 and 2005. Amanda remained on the television series until 2000, when the show went on a temporary hiatus. Several shows spawned from “AllThat,” one of which was “The Amanda Show.” a comedy skit-based television series starring Amanda Bynes, Josh Peck, and Drake Bell.
