An unnamed officer in the episode “Frontiers” (3×05)
When Amanda was first asked to direct X Company she had to decline, as she had promised her daughter time together that summer. Luckily, the producers were understanding and offered her some episodes later in the fall.
Amanda’s cameo on X Company was rather spontaneous since the actor they had originally had in mind for that scene was not available. Amanda was directing an episode when they asked her and she at first thought that she was being asked to direct an additional scene. Once she realised that it was about acting she was nervous, but she had also missed acting.
