Who is Amanda Moye Brown?
Amanda Moye Brown was born in the USA in 1983 – her exact birthdate remains unknown, but her zodiac sign is said to be Sagittarius, and she holds American nationality. She’s probably only known for being the wife of popular American actor James ‘Wes’ Brown.
Early life and education
Amanda was raised in the US by her parents about whom nothing’s known, because she respects their privacy; it’s said that her father was a truck driver, and that her mother was a florist. Because Amanda hasn’t spoken of having any siblings, most of her husband’s fans believe her to be an only child.
She grew up being interested in a couple of activities, including dancing, singing, and acting with her elementary school’s drama club.
Amanda became interested in sports upon enrolling at a local high school, and took on volleyball and soccer, while she also occasionally practiced gymnastics; it’s believed by some that she was on the school’s cheerleading team, but this remains unconfirmed.
She matriculated in 2001, and although Amanda hasn’t talked about her further education, it’s said that she attended college, and graduated in 2005.
Upon graduating, Amanda worked various jobs to financially support herself, but hasn’t shared details of her jobs with the public. After her and James’ daughter was born, she focused on raising her, thus becoming a housewife. She jokingly states that she’s today a part-time handywoman.
Love life and husband
Both Amanda and James are highly secretive when it comes to sharing the details of their love life, so only a couple of things about it are known.
The two met in the mid-2000s, and although they haven’t shared how, it’s believed by their fans that they met on a blind date. Amanda and James exchanged vows in 2008, in a private ceremony attended by only the closest of their friends and family members; in 2010, Amanda gave birth to their daughter Meribeth Brown, who can be seen featured in many of Amanda’s and James’ Instagram pictures.
Neither of the two have spoken of any other people whom they have perhaps been with, and as of December 2021, Amanda’s married to James Brown, and they have a daughter together; the family is living in Los Angeles, California.
Hobbies and other interests
Amanda started horseback riding when she was a teenager, and it seems that she has passed her passion on to her daughter, who has already started riding. Amanda likes all animals, and apparently volunteered at a local animal shelter during her 20s, while she’s also donated money to it.
She’s into travelling, and has been all around the US with her husband, mostly keeping him company during the shooting of his movies and TV series. The two have vacationed in Europe on multiple occasions, and Amanda’s dream travel destination is Paris in France.
She’s a fashionista, as she’s trying to keep up with all of the latest fashion trends, so Amanda’s also a bit of a shopaholic, as she goes shopping for clothes at least once a week.
She enjoys watching movies late at night – her favorite actors and actresses are Paul Rudd, Leonardo DiCaprio and Meryl Streep, while a couple of her favorite films include “Ant-Man”, “Catch Me If You Can” and “The Devil Wears Prada”.
Age, height and net worth
Amanda’s age is 38. She has long brown hair and brown eyes, her height is 5ft 2ins (1.6m) and she weighs around 110lbs (50kgs).
As of December 2021, her net worth has been estimated at over $20,000, while her husband James’ net worth is reputedly over $1 million.

He’s an actor, film producer and director, who has appeared in close to 50 movies and TV series, while he’s probably still known best for his portrayal of Chris Griffen, in the 2006 sports movie “We Are Marshall”. It was directed by McG, starred Matthew McConaughey, Matthew Fox and Anthony Mackie, and follows many members of the Marshall University’s football team who have died in a plane crash, while the remaining players and the team’s new coach are trying to keep the team going; the movie was nominated for an ESPY Award for Best Sports Movie.
James was raised in Fort Worth alongside his younger sister, by their parents James and Peggy Brown; he hasn’t shared any details regarding his family, because he respects their privacy. He became interested in acting while attending a local high school, as he was a member of its drama club, and appeared in plays performed at both the school and a local theatre. James was urged by his parents to focus on his education, rather than to pursue an acting career straight away, and upon matriculating in 2000, he enrolled at Louisiana State University, from which he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 2004.
He launched his acting career with his portrayal of The Franz, in the 2004 comedy movie “The Lady Is a Doll”, and the following year saw James make his debut TV series appearance, with his portrayal of Billy, in the romantic mini-series “Beach Girls”. It starred Rob Lowe, Julia Ormond and Chelsea Hobbs, and follows three teenage girls who took a vow of eternal friendship back in 1985, while one of them has now died. The remainder of the 2000s saw James appear in a couple of critically acclaimed movies and TV series, such as the action crime series “CSI: Miami”, the drama movie “Noble Thing” and the fantasy mystery series “True Blood”.
In 2011 and 2012, he played Dr. Judson Lyons in the romantic comedy series “Hart of Dixie”, created by Leila Gerstein, and which starred Rachel Bilson, Jaime King and Cress Williams. It follows the doctor Zoe Hart who has moved from New York City to Bluebell in Alabama, after having been invited by Dr. Harley Wilkes to work in his medical practice, however, after arriving there, she learns that the doctor has died and left her in charge. The series aired from 2011 to 2015, and won one of the five awards for which it was nominated.
Three of James’ most recent roles have been in the 2020 musical fantasy movie “A Nashville Christmas Carol”, the 2021 romantic family film “Sweet Pecan Summer” and the 2021 romantic movie “Every Time a Bell Rings”.
