Biography

Amber Stevens West's acting career rose quickly from appearances in television commercials to co-starring roles in "22 Jump Street" (2014) and "The Carmichael Show" (NBC, 2015- ), which showcased her talent for comedy. Born Amber Dawn Stevens in Los Angeles, California on October 7, 1986, she was the eldest of two daughters by radio and television personality Shadoe Stevens and model Beverly Cunningham. Her father's career sparked an interest in performing, which she would initially explore in television commercials after a brief stint as a catalog and magazine model in her pre-teen years. Stevens West decided to make acting her career, and after training with various teachers and the Groundlings improv comedy troupe, she made her screen debut with a bit part in "Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift" (2006). The following year, Stevens West earned her breakout role as Ashleigh, best friend to series lead Spencer Grammer's Casey on ABC Family's "Greek" (2007-2011). She balanced her work on the comedy-drama with guest appearances on other episodic series and bit parts in features like "Fired Up!" (2009) and "The Amazing Spider-Man" (2012) before finding a showcase for her comic skills in "22 Jump Street" as undercover cop Jonah Hill's love interest. The following year, she returned to series regular work on "The Carmichael Show," playing series lead Jerrod Carmichael's therapist girlfriend, whose biracial status was often the target of sharp commentary by his screen family.
