In an unexpected and tragic discovery, the 43-year-old former actress was found unresponsive today by her father in her Colorado home.
Details on the cause of death are unknown.
Her father tells TMZ that she had been suffering from health problems and that;
“…a sleep apnea problem that may have contributed.”
Amanda Peterson was best known for her lead role in the 1987 rom-com “Can’t Buy Me Love” alongside Patrick Dempsey and achieved a slight ‘teen crush’ status among young dudes back then…but her acting career didn’t seem to take off after 1989.

I remember her character in “Can’t Buy Me Love” so well…she was THE cool girl and I so wanted to be her, plus drive her super-DUPER cute white VW convertible Cabriolet (yes, it was so cool I still remember the make and model almost 30 yrs later!).
This is so terribly sad…she was so young!
R.I.P Amanda 😦
