Amanda Baker (born December 22, 1979) is an American actress. She is best known for portraying Jolene Crowell on General Hospital: Night Shift in 2007 and Babe Carey Chandler on All My Children from 2007 to 2008. Baker reappeared on June 4 and 29, 2009 as a ghost on All My Children as Babe Chandler.
Born as Laura Amanda Baker in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina and originally from Charleston, South Carolina, Baker received her degree in business marketing (with a minor in fashion merchandising) at the University of South Carolina before breaking into a television career. She is the daughter of D. F. Keels Baker and Laura Baker, and has a sister, Candy. She has a cat named Nikko. Baker participates in charity work for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and Big Brothers and Sisters, the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life and LA Works.
Baker starred as Jolene Crowell on General Hospital: Night Shift. She joined the cast of All My Children as the new Babe Carey Chandler on October 8, 2007. In an odd move, she debuted on the same day that actress Alexa Havins exited the role. When Babe hugged Krystal (the character's mother), it was Havins, but when the hug ceased, Amanda Baker was present. She departed from the role in October 2008. Baker reappeared on June 4 and 29, 2009 on All My Children as Babe's ghost.
