Early life and careerEdit

Born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Amis first worked as a Ford model before she began acting in the 1980s. She made her feature film debut in the 1985 comedy film Fandango, opposite Kevin Costner. Following Fandango, Amis next had roles in Rocket Gibraltar (1988), Where the Heart Is, and Rich in Love (1993). In 1993, she appeared as Josephine "Jo" Monaghan in The Ballad of Little Jo. Amis later appeared in Blown Away (1994), The Usual Suspects (1995) and the blockbuster Titanic (1997) in which she played Lizzy Calvert, the granddaughter of Rose DeWitt Bukater (Gloria Stuart). That same year, she starred opposite Tom Selleck in the western Last Stand at Sabre River and acted in the cult-classic Nadja. Amis quit acting after her last screen appearance in the 1999 film, Judgment Day.

In 2005, Amis founded MUSE Elementary, a Reggio-inspired, independent, non-profit school in the Topanga, California area of Los Angeles.
