Acting careerEdit

Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, Amy wanted to be an actress from a young age. She got her break when she reached the semifinals in the spokesmodel category on the television show Star Search, and one of the show's judges, Sue Cameron, offered to represent her.[1]

In 1986, she played Britta Englund, a former KGB agent who was involved in a love triangle with Patch Johnson and Bo Brady, on Days of Our Lives, where she met actor Robert Poynton who played "John Black". They married in 1987 and had a son, but divorced in 2004.[2]

In 1987, she played a recurring role in a major story arc on Dallas as Lisa Alden, the biological aunt of Christopher Ewing.[3] She played Missy, the sexy stepmother of Bill and later Ted, in Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure,[4] and its sequel Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey.[5] Stoch also appeared in four television movies of the Gunsmoke series, as Marshal Matt Dillon's daughter "Beth",[6] and also made a guest appearance on an episode of Matlock.
