Amanda Lucas (born July 1, 1981) is an American professional mixed martial artist. She is the eldest daughter of movie director and producer George Lucas and Award-winning American film editor, Marcia Lucas.
Amanda Lucas is the daughter of George and Marcia Lucas. She was adopted during their marriage, after they unsuccessfully tried to conceive a child. Subsequent to her adoptive parents' divorce in 1983, legal custody of Amanda was equally split between George and Marcia as part of the terms of their settlement.
Amanda and her younger sister Katie (born in 1988) appeared in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace (1999) in credited roles. Amanda was the voice of Tey How, the alien controller in the droid control ship. She was credited as Tyger. She can also be seen in Jabba the Hutt's box during the Podrace scene as Diva Funquita.
Lucas would appear in the other two prequels, as did her sister Katie and her younger brother Jett. None of them were, however, credited for Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones (2002). In this movie, Amanda makes her cameo as Adnama, one of the patrons in the Outlander Club, in the scene where Anakin Skywalker chases Zam Wesell.
Lucas was credited again, this time as Amanda Lucas, for Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith (2005). Her role was given the name of Terr Taneel, although she does not have any lines. She is one of the Human senators next to Bail Organa and Mon Mothma.
