Netflix has apparently taken on the role of bringing unknown actors into the spotlight, a role Disney has been known for since several decades ago. Many of Netflix hit shows such as Stranger Things and House of Cards have been the springboard for a number of actors to gain mainstream popularity. Another Netflix project, You, boasts names like Ambyr Childers, who found recognition through her work on the show.
While many must have seen Ambyr Childers for the first time in You, it is not the first project that the actress has embarked on. She has actually been in the industry since 2000, with a role in daytime soap opera, All My Children being her first major project. You can learn all about her and her career thus far by reading below.
