Amanda is a good friend of Kim Mills in Taken. Ultimately, Amanda's carelessness and promiscuity result in the kidnappers learning where Kim and her are and that they are alone, causing them to be abducted. She is played by Katie Cassidy.
Kim asks Bryan for permission to travel to Paris with her nineteen year-old friend Amanda. Bryan balks at the two girls travelling alone, but relents when Lenore complains that he is overprotective. He gives Kim an international cellphone, and makes her promise to call every day. At Los Angeles International Airport, he learns that the girls are not staying in Paris, but are following U2 during their European tour.
Arriving in Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport, Kim and Amanda meet Peter (Nicolas Giraud), a scout for a kidnapping gang, who offers to share a cab with them and so learns where they are staying. Peter invites the two to a party and although Kim protests since they do not really know him, Amanda tells Peter that they are on the fourth floor all alone. Kim believes they are staying with Amanda's cousins but, upon arriving up at the apartment, learns that the cousins are actually in Spain, and becomes slightly nervous. Amanda then tells Kim that she plans to sleep with Peter since she hears French guys are "amazing in bed". While talking to Bryan on the phone in the bathroom, Kim sees Amanda being kidnapped by intruders. Bryan instructs her to go to the nearest room and hide under a bed. He explains that when the men find her, she has to shout out their physical descriptions. Kim is pulled out violently from under the bed, and she complies with her father's instructions before the phone is found. Bryan warns the person over the phone that they have this one chance to release his daughter, or else he will begin hunting them down and killing them. He is told "good luck" and the connection is terminated.
