Her Background

Amybeth McNulty was born in Ireland but relocated with her family to Vancouver at age 11. There she began intensive acting training at Vancouver Academy of Dramatic Arts. At just 13, she was selected for the prestigious Dublin Youth Theatre advanced program. This experience prepared her for professional roles like Anne Shirley in Anne with an E.

An interesting note about her early life – Amybeth actually started playing violin at age 6 and even once performed for the Irish president! She remains a talented violinist today.

Her Breakout Role as Anne Shirley

Like many fans, I was immediately drawn to Amybeth‘s charming screen presence as Anne Shirley. Through 3 seasons, she brought such spirit, emotion and humanity to the classic character.

Some of my favorite scenes that highlighted her acting talent include:

  • Her delight seeing her room for the first time at Green Gables
  • Arguing with Gilbert Blythe and smashing her slate over his head
  • Tearfully defending Ka‘kwet at the town hall meeting
  • Joyfully leading the students in composing their own newspaper

With incredible range, Amybeth depicted Anne‘s boundless imagination, intellect and capacity for joy as well as her traumatic past. Her Canadian Screen Awards for the role were well-deserved.

Her Other Notable Roles

While Anne Shirley remains her breakout, I‘ve also enjoyed seeing Amybeth take on other fictional personalities like:

  • Margaret Beaufort in The White Queen – She held her own against veterans like Essie Davis.
  • Noelle in A Christmas Star – Her romantic chemistry with lead actor Pierce Brosnan was impressive for her age.
  • Claire in The Town – I could visualize the animated scenes through her vocal delivery alone.
  • Daisy in The Witches – She resonated in a more mature role, anchoring scenes with Anne Hathaway.

With each performance, Amybeth transforms completely into her character. I‘m excited to see her continue taking on new challenges.

  • Her dance training that enables her to imbue characters with graceful movement.
  • Her vocal range allowing her to shift tone and accents between roles.

She makes every moment feel real. It‘s no surprise renowned directors seek to work with this prodigy.
