Actress Amanda Bynes was the young star of the movie What a Girl Wants (2003) and the cable TV comedy series What I Like About You. Bynes was already a comedy veteran by the time she became a teenager, having performed for years on Nickelodeon’s shows All That (1996-2000) and The Amanda Show (1999-2002), where her skill at broad comedy earned her comparisons to Lucille Ball. She made the leap to the big screen in 2002 as Frankie Muniz’s co-star in Big Fat Liar, and starred in 2003’s What a Girl Wants (co-starring Kelly Preston). In 2006 she played opposite Channing Tatum in She’s the Man, a takeoff on Shakespeare’s play Twelfth Night, and in 2007 she appeared in the movie version of the musical based on John Waters’s Hairspray (2007, with Zac Efron). Bynes was also a regular panelist on the Nickelodeon’s Figure it Out game show.
