The "Grand Empress of SciFi" - Amanda Tapping

"I would hope that I’d be remembered for being kind. For being a good daughter and a good wife and most importantly a good friend. I’d like it to be remembered that I loved passionately and that I loved a lot and that I cared."

Amanda Tapping, 1998

Both the fans worldwide and her colleagues speak of Amanda Tapping in the highest tones. She appeals to people with her special attributes: kindness, grace, caring, humility, down-to-earthness, the ability to listen, entertaining and humor. Whenever you have a chance to talk to Amanda, sooner or later she always emphasizes how important it is for her display  kindness, respect and the encouragement of others. And that she's trying to improve her little corner of the world, as she feels she has a moral obligation as a "privileged person." More recently, she has also spoken openly and honestly about her lack of self-respect and self-worth, which she has struggled about for years.

Amanda Tapping isn't just an actress and director, an activist, and a woman!
She is a role model - and inspiring both professionally and privately!
