Amanda Jacqueline Redman (born 12 August 1957) is an English actress, perhaps best known for her role as Sandra Pullman in the BBC One series New Tricks.

Early life

Redman was born in Brightonmarker, Sussex, in 1957. Her father was from Yorkshiremarker and her mother from Sussex.

Redman is badly scarred on her upper left arm as a result of an accident when she was 18 months old. She was scalded with a pan of boiling turkey-and-vegetable soup and suffered third-degree burns to 75% of her body. Her arm was the only part of her body permanently affected, but the trauma was so severe that she was actually pronounced clinically dead at the Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead, Sussex.


Redman trained at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre Schoolmarker.

She played opposite Liv Ullman in Richard's Things (1981) and took over from Alfred Molina in the 1990s comedy drama El C.I.D., playing a new female lead in the series, and played Diana Dors in the 1999 TV movie The Blonde Bombshell. Amanda presented an MTV show on satellite TV in the 1990s. She also co-starred in the first series of Dangerfield (1995) and played a role in Taggart which included her doing a nude scene in the same year. In 2000, Redman played Deedee Dove in the feature film Sexy Beast.

From 2000 until 2003, Amanda played the part of Alison, a woman whose life is turned upside-down when she wins the lottery, in ITV's At Home with the Braithwaites.

Beginning in 2003, Redman took the role of Sandra Pullman in the BBC's New Tricks.

In June 2006 Redman performed in Children's Party At The Palace as Cruella DeVil for Queen Elizabeth II's 80th birthday; and was the subject of one episode of the BBC documentary series Who Do You Think You Are?, a program about her family history.

Redman is principal at the Artists Theatre School, based at Ealing Studiosmarker, which she co-founded in 1994. She was also president of the Brighton Little Theatre from 2004 to 2007.

She has spoken about her fear of lack of work for older actresses.

Personal life

Redman is the mother of actress Emily Glenister (born 1987), from her marriage to the actor Robert Glenister. Since 1999 she has been in a relationship with mobile-phone designer Damian Schnabel. The couple live in Ealingmarker, West London.

As seen several times on her appearance in the first series of Who Do You Think You Are?, Redman is a smoker.

In August 2009, Sunday tabloid The Mail on Sunday acquired a copy of Redman's birth certificate and reported her year of birth as 1957. Redman has previously claimed to be two years younger than she is.
