Amy Hess is a professional actress who studied in Los Angeles at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts, a renowned acting conservatory, and The Groundlings, a premiere Improvisational school in Hollywood. She also trained in an “invitation only” scene study class with accomplished acting instructor Janet Alhanti, who lists Sydney Poitier, Toby Maguire and Diane Lane as clients. Ernie Lively who also helped shape the careers of Brittany Murphy and Blake Lively regularly coached her.
Her career began with several television guest-starring spots on hit shows such as Beverly Hills 90210, In the Heat of the Night, USA High and The Wayans Bros.
Amy comes with over a decade of Hollywood Industry experience. She worked behind the scenes for agents, managers, photographers, and casting directors in Los Angeles. Her experience both in front of and behind the camera has given her a unique and valuable perspective. She understands the importance of both quality production and engaging material. Her production experience was honed as a researcher for “The Leeza Show” at Paramount Pictures. As a commercial Producer, she has won multiple regional Addy awards.
Upon relocating her family back to the Southeast, she found a calling and passion for Faith-Based films. She appeared in several Christian films and projects such as Unrequited, The Easter Experience, and The Stranger Series. She realized she was called to a Greater Glory than her own! Her role as Mary Magdalene in The Easter Experience was transformative and she was asked to write about it for HOFSU.
Recently, Amy created her own Television series, which has garnered several Regional Emmy award nominations as Producer and Host and an Emmy win for Outstanding Magazine Program. The Local Traveler™, where she serves as Creator, Executive Producer, Writer and Host airs weekly across Kentucky and Tennessee. Her love of people and exuberance for life is evident in her role as Host and she has since been slated to host a variety of other projects in addition to The Local Traveler™.

Excellent show, Amy Hess. You're a talented producer and host. Great production value, well written and spoken narratives. The B-roll footage is first-rate and the lighting is consistently "sweet" with good use of depth of field cinematography. Again, superbly well done.

“Amy is an outstanding actress. Her portrayal of Mary Magdalene spoke to many peoples hearts. Her professionalism makes her a pleasure to work with. Her Christian values make her a pleasure to be around. During post- production, she was able to come into a sterile studio and give emotional performances for ADR. She not only was able to give us great crying tracks on cue, but she was able to ad lib off camera dialog and emotional sounds as well. I look forward to working with her again.”
