Amanda Bynes' rise to fame.
Throughout the early to mid-2000s, Nickelodeon was the television channel in Australian households, with kids begging their parents to get Foxtel so they could watch TV programs like The Amanda Show.
From a young age, Bynes had loved performing and was in local stage productions in California. Her big break came while she was 10 at a kids’ comedy camp in LA when she was spotted by a Nickelodeon producer.
