Meet Amanda Plummer, Christopher Plummer’s Daughter Who Has Followed in His Footsteps
Christopher Plummer, of the most prestigious and recognized names in the film industry, has recently passed away, leaving behind a legacy very few will ever be able to match.
His passing left a huge hole in the hearts of fans around the world, as well as those who had the chance of knowing him in person. One of those people is his daughter and only child, Amanda Plummer.
Although Amanda's name isn't right up there with her father's, she is an accomplished actress that has been leaving her mark on the big screen as well as on stage.

Born in 1957 in New York, daughter to Christopher Plummer and actress Tammy Grimes, Amanda grew up watching her famous parents being constantly under the spotlight.
Thanks to them and their guidance, she learned a lot about the business and got her breakthrough role in 1991, where she was cast to star opposite late Robin Williams in the film "The Fisher King."
Although that was her first great experience on the big screen, her role in "Pulp Fiction" as a character referred to only as Honey Bunny by co-star Tim Roth, is to this day her most famous part.
In the cult-classic film, which stars big names such as Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta and Uma Thurman, Amanda plays the role of a robber.
Amanda has earned a Tony Award
It has been reported that Quentin Tarantino, who wrote and directed the movie, created the parts of the robbers who hold up a restaurant specifically for Plummer and Roth.
