Amy Lynne Seimetz (born November 25, 1981) is an American actress, writer, producer, director, and editor. She has appeared in several productions, including AMC's The Killing, HBO's Family Tree, and ERBP's Upstream Color. In 2015, she co-wrote, co-directed and executive produced the Starz series The Girlfriend Experience, based on the Steven Soderbergh film of the same name, which was released to positive reviews and critical acclaim.
In 2016, Seimetz was engaged to filmmaker Shane Carruth, though they had separated by 2019. She later obtained a temporary restraining order against him, alleging years of emotional, mental, and physical abuse. In 2020, Seimetz was granted a restraining order against Carruth that will expire in August 2025.
Seimetz grew up in the Tampa-St. Petersburg area, and briefly attended film school at the Florida State University before moving to Los Angeles. There she worked as a nanny, a waitress, and a seamstress while learning filmmaking.
