It's a very sad day today after hearing the loss of Amanda Peterson. Being and 80's movie addict, I can tell you that I am still in shock over this news. Amanda was a talented actress having started her career early as one of her first roles was in the 1982 version of Annie. With several roles in both television and film, her most famous role was playing the unattainable cheerleader in 1987's "Can't Buy Me Love". In the height of 1980's teen angst movies including the prominent John Hughes era, "Can't Buy Me Love" held it's own with great characters, music and style. This led to it being held as one the cult 80's teen romantic comedies. Having retired from acting after 1994, she retired back to her hometown of Colorado where she passed away today. There isn't much information yet as to what led to her death other than her father stating that she has some illness as well as Sleep Apnea, which they believe had some measure in her passing. The last photos that she had posed for were in 2012.
So with this sad news, I would like to send you off with one of the most memorable scenes from "Can't Buy Me Love"..... RIP Amanda, you will be missed!
