Biography

Although best known for playing a privileged young Manhattanite named Penelope Shafai on "Gossip Girl" (The CW, 2007-2012), Amanda Setton blossomed to become a noteworthy supporting player on various TV shows. In addition to her role on "Gossip Girl," Setton earned legions of fans for playing a duplicitous Las Vegas stripper on the soap opera "One Life to Live" (ABC 1968-2012), while also landing small parts in the hit films "What Happens in Vegas" (2008) and "Sex and the City" (2008). Her career reached a high point in 2013 when she joined the cast of David E. Kelley's sitcom "The Crazy Ones" (CBS 2013- ), which starred Academy Award-winner Robin Williams as a madcap advertising executive. The show received the highest ratings of any premiere when it debuted in the fall of 2013, and was subsequently picked up for a full season, underscoring Setton's already growing status as one of the TV world's hottest young actresses to watch.
