Amy Acker began making the world smile when she was born one December 5th in Dallas, Texas.

Once basic education was accounted for and her high school diploma was received, Acker attended Southern Methodist University from 1996-1999. In the 1996 Rotunda yearbook, it mentions that she roomed with the university president's daughter in her freshman year. In 1998, Amy made her acting debut at SMU.

Throughout that year and the year following, she played a vast variety of roles, including Seta, Beast on the Moon at Stage West; Terry, Balm in Gilead; Isabella, Measure for Measure; Chorus, The Greeks; Christina, Fefu and her Friends; Anna, Apparent Wind all for Southern Methodist University.

In 1999, Amy received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting from SMU in 1999 and was nominated for best leading actress in the Leon Rabin Awards for "Therese Raquin." Now out of school, she continued to persue her acting career. Less than a year later, in December 2000, she began dating actor Joseph Scarimbolo - you may recognize him from "Abandon" with Benjamin Bratt. Now Amy has a steady gig as Winifred, also known as Fred, the newest regular on television drama Angel.
