Amanda was Amanda Holmes who was played by Deborah Steinberg Solomon from 1966-1970. If I remember my ATWT history correctly, Amanda was the secret daughter of Sara Fuller (played by Gloria deHaven from 1966-1967) but had been adopted by Bill & Ann Holmes (played by William Prince & Augusta Dabney from 1966-1967). In truth, Bill was actually Amanda's real father! Both Amanda and Sara were romantically involved in Don Hughes at the same time (without knowing their connection to one another) and I think Sara might have dated Bob at one point prior. Bill told Amanda the truth about Sara on his deathbed, but she refused to reveal the truth to Sara who was her romantic rival for Don. When Don & Sara made plans to marry, Amanda was furious and threatened to reveal the truth to Don with a letter Bill had written confirming her parentage. As Sara chased after Amanda, she suffered a fatal fall down the stairs. Amanda went on trial for Sara's murder and it nearly resulted in Chris & Nancy's divorce! Chris defended Amanda, but Nancy testified against her because Sara had been her close friend, which led to Chris cross-examining Nancy during the trial! Amanda was eventual found innocent, Chris & Nancy reconciled. Don & Amanda later dated, but she eventually left town when she realized he would never really love her.
