Amandla Stenberg is an American actress. She was born in Los Angeles, California, to Karen Brailsford and Tom Stenberg. Her mother is African-American and her father is Danish. Amandla landed the first of her Disney catalog modeling shoots when she was four years old and has shot numerous national commercials, most notably for McDonald’s with Ronald McDonald, for Walmart with DJ Tony, Anthony Okungbowa from Ellen DeGeneres (LeVar Burton directed), and for Build The Dream. This moving, Boeing – sponsored PSA, which raised funds for a national memorial in Washington, D.C., honoring Martin Luther King, Jr., premiered during the weekend of President Obama’s inauguration in January 2009 on Meet the Press. She is best known for her portrayal of young Cataleya in Colombiana and Rue in The Hunger Games.
In addition to on-camera jobs, Amandla has put her sensitive ear to work in voice-over gigs for both film and television. She lent her voice to Rio 2 in the role of Bia, a high-flying feathery spawn of Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) and Jewel (Anne Hathaway). A gifted musician, she plays the violin, drums and guitar. In 2009, Amandla performed the violin with Los Angeles Unified School District’s Honors Orchestra at the Luckman Fine Arts Complex. Her involvement with the RockSTAR Music Education program landed her gigs on the guitar and drums at the House of Blues and the Hard Rock Café, as well as a studio session with producer/ engineer Gerry Brown, after her band won RockSTAR’s Battle of the Bands. In 2013 Amandla began performing on the violin and singing harmonies at LA venues with singer/songwriter Zander Hawley. The folk-rock duo, known as Honeywater, released their first EP in August 2015.
