British actress Amy (Amrit) Maghera’s body of work uniquely transcends borders, as she has worked across the globe. From the U.K. to Bollywood, Amy has established herself as a force in both the film and television industries. She will soon be seen starring as one of the leads in Netflix’s latest feature film, “Skater Girl,” by sister filmmakers Manjari and Vinati Makijany. Maghera will play ‘Jessica’ in the coming-of-age film about a teen girl (‘Prerna’) who discovers a passion for skateboarding and faces a rough road as she follows her dream to compete. Shooting the film was a life-changing experience for Amy, as she shot in the desert of Rajasthan, in a remote village called Khempur, and was able to take in the beauty of the countryside and connect with locals. The whole experience taught her to “just live in the moment more and that money by no means equals happiness.”

Other recent work includes starring as series regular, ‘Neeta Kaur,’ in the popular UK soap series “Hollyoaks” and playing a lead role in Pan Nalin’s female-centric, critically acclaimed feature, “Angry Indian Goddesses,” which is Amy’s favorite project to date. The film received first runner up at the ‘People’s Choice Awards’ at the Toronto International Film Festival and won ‘The People’s Choice’ at the Rome International Film Festival. Maghera’s performance was described as “tender and compassionate” by film critic Subhash K Jha. Amy’s additional credits include guest starring on other popular U.K. television series, including BBC’s “Casualty,” and she can be seen in Netlfix’s recently released Bollywood feature film “Time to Dance.”
