Bio

Kelli Giddish is an American actress best known for her starring role as Detective Amanda Rollins on the police procedural television series Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

She is also known for her television roles as Di Henry in All My Children (2005-2007) and as Annie Frost in Chase, from 2010-2011.

Born and raised in Cumming, Georgia, Giddish began acting at an early age and was a staple in her high school's theatre department. Additionally, she was an all-star athlete and member of her high school's championship-winning softball team.

After high school, Giddish attended the University of Evansville in Indiana, where as a senior, she was an Irene Ryan Award finalist and was thus selected to perform at the Kennedy Center. She later graduated with honours with a degree in performance arts.

Giddish moved to New York after graduation and soon could be seen in Matt Smart's film Shoes, opposite Farrah Fawcett in Bobbi Boland, and in her self-written, and acted, one-woman show, Dropsy.

In 2005, she made her small-screen debut on All My Children. During this time, she starred in the critically acclaimed online series The Burg and made a guest appearance on NBC's Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, which later became a series regular role.

Giddish also starred in Past Life, and made guest appearances on Life on Mars and Without a Trace.

In 2007, Giddish played a supporting lead role in David Connolly's independent feature The Understudy. Following her departure from All My Children later that year, she made a guest appearance on Law & Order: Criminal Intent, had a recurring role on Damages, and appeared in Boaz Yakin's feature film Death in Love opposite Josh Lucas and Jacqueline Bissett.

Giddish currently divides her time between New York and Los Angeles.
