Rogue Cinema Sleepover Girl – August 2010
All about Kimberly:
Age: It’s a number between birth and death. 🙂
Location: New York
Some of my favorite things: Family, animals, the beach, filmmaking, writing…working with the Mighty McT
Most people would be surprised to know that I: was a softball catcher since I could pick up a ball, just like my mom.
Hobbies / special skills: Tennis, biking, roller blading, softball, hockey, video games… I can rebuild a computer and psycho-analyze a person – gotta love that. 🙂
Number of years acting / modeling: 10+
Favorite genre(s) and or film(s): Horror is fun, psychological thrillers are my favorite… Silence of the Lambs and Nightmare on Elm Street…. and ummm Lilo & Stitch. Hey, I’m a kid at heart ya know.
Acting / modeling gigs that I’m the most proud of: All of them… each role takes me into a new direction and each project showcases new challenges. I’m most proud of doing each specific job to the best of my ability.
What I look for in a potential acting or modeling job: Firstly, I hope the script and character is a well developed one. Beyond that I would like it to be an organized and well run production. I know it sounds like a lot, but simple communication can make everything run smoothly. A lot of times that simple task is overlooked.

Kimberly Amato was named ScreamQueen.com’s Scream Queen of the Month (March 2009) while Cinemafantiastique.net, a French Site, named her Scream Queen of the Week on March 22nd, adding to the critical acclaim she has received for her work in Under The Raven’s Wing. Amato’s portrayal of the lead character Raven is, “quite chilling, but you still want to like this weird, misfit chick with the tough past,” says Pretty/Scary’s Jane Rose. Theron Neel of Scream TV commented, “As Raven, Kimberly Amato gives an incredibly nuanced performance. At times seductive, stupid, and sadistic, Amato is a lot of fun to watch as she blusters her way through what is basically a psychological study in group dynamics.”
Not one to be limited to a specific genre, Amato also worked on a comedy television pilot entitled “Party Girl.” The original teleplay, written by Kimberly Amato and Amanda Ramirez, was a semi-finalist in the Page International Screenwriting Awards. In the 14-minute pilot, Amato, who portrayed the ditzy character “Jenna Bradley,” also wore multiple hats during the production, specifically writer, producer, editor, and director. Its completion has lead to two awards: The Aloha Accolade for Excellence in Filmmaking from the Honolulu International Film Festival, and The Golden Ace Award from the Las Vegas International Film Festival.
Recently, Amato has joined forces with Michelle Tomlinson for the webseries "The Mis-Adventures of McT & A!" as well as the short film "Itch" and a slew of other projects on their slate for the future. Beyond that she is also working with Bridge & Tunnel Media, LLC on a Spanish/English Novella Webseries.
