From people that have met her in person (aka lucky bastards).
While I was at the Wonder Con, I went by to say hi to my pal David Mack. He introduced me to his friend Mandy Amano. While David was busy with his many fans, I had a very pleasant conversation with Mandy. She told me that she was an aspiring actress, and that she had appeared in a Pepsi ad that played during the superbowl. She told me that somebody put up a fan blog devoted to her. I also learned that she was named after the Barry Manilow song. Mandy is a super nice person, just like David, and it was a pleasure to meet her. Since then, my family and I have seen Mandy’s Pepsi ad on TV several times. It’s always a kick to see it, because her warm friendly personality really comes through. I think Mandy is going to be a big star. - (Lee of Lee's Comics, California) I saw her with David Mack too. When he was signing at Wondercon in Frisco. She even looks famous in real life. And she was incredibly nice and personable. I met her Amano dad and her boy toy Mack when they were signing their books at Wizard World. And Mandy was there too, and she actually looks even more stunning in person. And I was surprised by how nice she was. i was able to take a picture with david mack and mandy amano at wondercon. david even signed two free copies of his comic book. they were both super nice. Wow. I can't believe there is a sight for 'thepepsigirl.' I actually met Mandy back at the SDCC a couple of years ago. Like people have already mentioned she's from a comic book family. She was really nice to talk to and super friendly. I actually went to college w/ her but didn't even know it. One of my friends had a class w/ her freshman year. Congrats to Mandy and good luck. Hope to see you in more things!!! I am so glad to see Mandy doing well for herself--I went to high school with her and she is very sweet (as well as being one of the most beautiful people I have ever seen in person). :) I went to high school with her too. I had a scene in a show with her one year that I had to run carrying her in my arms. One night I fell down a flight of stairs but still managed to keep her up in the air. She's a great gal! I've met Mandy and have traveled several times with members of her family. They're truly great people and it's no small wonder that they have such a captivating and talented daughter. The Pepsi people better realize what they have before she transcends the national advertising scene. She's gonna be big.
