Saturday Scream Queen: Amanda Righetti

Amanda Righetti has become a familiar face to television viewers as Detective Grace Van Pelt, who must play the adult to the antics of conman-turned-police-consultant on "The Mentalist", but she landed her first major recurring role on "The O.C." and she has been working steadily in episodic television ever since.

Along the way, Righetti has also appeared in numerous horror films. Her first film role was in the low-budget chiller "Angel Blade" (2002), but her successful television carer led her to starring roles in "Return to House on Haunted Hill" (2007) and the 2009 remake of "Friday the 13th" and the recently released "Shadow of Fear".

Righetti continues to star in "The Mentalist", but she is also working on "Deconstruction Red", a thriller slated for a 2013 release date.


  1. She's a cutie - and while I don't watch The Mentalist - I have seen her in Friday the 13th and Return to House on Haunted Hill.

    Has Angel Blade been released, Steve? If it's the movie I'm thinking of my old buddy Jeb Toms is in the movie in a Santa Claus outfit... and I'd really like to see it!

  2. Took a look - different movie - same title - the one I'm thinking of is about demons...
