Amandla Stenberg stars in "Colombiana" as a young Cataleya Restrepo, who is played as an adult by Zoe Saldana. Amandla opens the movie, setting the stage for Saldana's cold-blooded assassin. The Luc Besson vehicle is quintessential Besson, featuring lots of daring stunts, some of which Amandla performed herself. On set to help Amandla hone her natural athletic abilities was David Belle, the French-born creator of Parkour.

Named for the Zulu word for power, Amandla Stenberg is a force to be reckoned with. She landed the first of her Disney catalog modeling shoots when she was four years old. She has shot numerous national spots, most notably for McDonald's with Ronald McDonald himself, for Walmart with DJ Tony of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" (LeVar Burton, aka Kunta Kinte, directed), and for Build the Dream. This moving, Boeing-sponsored PSA, which raises funds for a national memorial in Washington honoring Martin Luther King, Jr., premiered during the weekend of President Obama's inauguration in January 2009 on "Meet the Press" and other NBC/MSNBC programs.

In addition to on-camera jobs, Amandla has put her sensitive ear to work in ADR gigs for both film and television, and as a musician. She plays the violin, drums and guitar. In 2009 she performed the violin with the Los Angeles Unified School District's Honors Orchestra at the Luckman Fine Arts Complex. Her involvement with the Rock STAR Music Education program landed her gigs at the House of Blues and the Hard Rock Cafe, as well as a studio session with producer/engineer Gerry Brown, after her band won RockSTAR's Battle of the Bands.

In February 2011, Amandla filmed the Hallmark Channel movie "Taste of Romance." In April 2011, Lionsgate announced that she had landed the coveted role of Rue in the screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins' popular young adult series, "The Hunger Games."
