Amy Stoch

Amy Stoch, also known as Amy Stock-Poynton, was a working actor in both television and movies in the 1980's and '90's. Her most high-profile movies were Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, and its sequel, Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey, where she played Missy, the hot step-mother. However, those films hardly gave her the chance to prove she was more than just a pretty face.

The made for television Gunsmoke movies where she played the adult daughter of Marshall Dillon, the family film, Beanstalk, and the soap opera, Days of Our Lives, where she played Britta Englund, are much better examples of her talent and versatility.

Amy Stoch still looks good today and manages to pop up in smaller independent films from time to time - most notably, the little seen Amber Rose, where her role as Judy, the troubled wife of a brain-damaged child predator is both heartbreaking and moving.

Like good wine, Amy Stoch has aged well and even though she's hasn't appeared in a major motion picture for years, she certainly has the talent and good looks to still work on a mainstream project. And let's keep our fingers crossed that she'll get that opportunity again.
