Las Vegas native Amy Purdy, 24, is a Freedom Innovations Amputee Advocate with many aspirations, but above all she's an actress at heart. In a rare occurrence for Hollywood motion pictures, Amy was cast as the female lead in an independent film, "What's Bugging Seth," a drama by Man of Steel Productions.Amy first got involved with this film through her prosthetist who received the casting call from O&P Edge. "They were looking for a female, below-knee amputee in her early 20's with red hair and a vintage style," she reflects. "I knew this was my chance."
I am so pleased that this production company gave the role of a disabled character to a disabled person and not an able bodied person with a double. Good on you!!! As you will see from the photo above Amy Purdy has a very appropriate name.
