CRIMINAL MINDS: AMANDA BERNERO
Criminal Minds: Amanda Bernero portrayed Rebecca Bryant in three Criminal Minds episodes. In "Fisher King, Part One" Rebecca was the victim the BAU was trying to save. In "Fisher King, Part Two" Rebecca was saved thanks to the wonderful fast thinking Dr. Spencer Reid, played by Matthew Gray Gubler. Unfortunately Rebecca Bryant was one of Frank's victims in "No Way Out, Part Two: The Evilution of Frank". Amanda did a wonderful job in all three episodes. What I will never forget is the conversation in the chat room after NWO 2. Ed Bernero killed off his daughter's character was the theme for much of the chat. I recently asked Mr. Bernero about this and he pointed out to me that Amanda had actually guest starred in more episodes than any other guest. Thinking about it later I realized that Frank's killing of the BAU's survivors was one of the things that actually made NWO 2 different from any other Criminal Minds episode and helped it to be the incredible episode it is. Thank you to Stacy for the screencaps of Amanda. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1057085/.
