But when it comes to her love life, everything is more complicated there. Of course, in comparison to her career. The thing is that the actress has been happily married to Robin Hunter, her first husband, for about 20 years. Unfortunately, Robin passed away in 2004. But their marriage wasn’t that smooth as they had separated long before the tragic event. The couple didn’t have children.

A separate page of her life was opened when Amanda found out that she was a bisexual. It was 2002 and she was 67 at that time. Her first partner was Heather Chasen. But it was Hilary Bonner who became her long-term partner, and eventually her wife.

They married in 2014, and Amanda was 79 at that time.

First, they didn’t have any intentions of getting married. They viewed themselves as life partners and didn’t need any documents for that. Still, Drury Lane Theatre appeared to be the place where the couple tied the knot.

Amanda is perfectly happy now with the person she is comfortable with. And when people started constantly asking her about her sexuality, she made it perfectly clear in her autobiography ‘It’s Not A Rehearsal':

When I did my autobiography [It's Not A Rehearsal], I was being hounded by people asking about my sexuality – which had always been a confusion to me, never mind anyone else. So I did the book because I thought, ‘I’m bloody well putting my side of how it is.’ I wanted it off my chest.

It’s great that after so many years Amanda has managed to find her true love and finally enjoys her life to the fullest.
