There’s a new guest star joining the cast of Magnum P.I. as they work to investigate a kidnapping. Amanda is the 16-year-old kidnap victim who escapes from her captors but who is the actress who plays her?
Magnum is on the case this week, hired by Amanda’s parents to solve the crime. Can his experiences as a POW help him to relate to the victim and help find who took her?
Season 1 Episode 9 of the show is called The Ties That Bind and from the preview, it appears to be a very serious episode for Magnum and his team.
The full episode preview is shown below, including a flashback to when Magnum suffered through being a POW.
