Amanda Grace Hsu Hsien Leo 梁宿娴 is a Chinese Singaporean screen and stage actor, voice-over artist and singer. Born in Tāmaki Makaurau, Amanda spent her formative years in Aotearoa before her family moved back to Singapore when she was 9, where she spent her intermediate school years training in devising in Singapore under Noorlinah Mohamed. She later moved back to Aotearoa and received a first-class honour in Dramaturgy from the University of Auckland, where she trained briefly in clown under Master Clown Dr Ira Seidenstein.

Theatre highlights include; Call of the Sparrows for Proudly Asian Theatre in 2016, and the 2018 Auckland Fringe one-woman multilingual debut of Oliver Chong's ROOTS. Amanda has long-standing collaborations with Oriental Maidens, starting with the two seasons of Nathan Joe’s I Am Rachel Chu [2018-2019] and most recently with Auckland Theatre Company's acclaimed season of Scenes From A Yellow Peril in 2022.

Screen highlights include; viral Tiktok series n00b by Lusty Productions, TVNZ documentary Sik Fan Lah! and a cheeky cameo or two in Season 2 of HBO's upcoming Our Flag Means Death.  Voice highlights include; the role of Nai Nai (Grandma) in Becky Kuek’s Tales of Nai Nai, the voice of Jiangshi Sauda in the Chinese version of the video game Bloons.

By day, Amanda is a tarot reader under her brand Grace&Tarot and runs a face-painting company called Face Fatale Facepainting.
