Amanda Harris is a fictional artificial human and a supporting character featured on the original daytime Gothic soap opera Dark Shadows. Played by actress Donna McKechnie, she first appeared in episode 812 in 1969 in a storyline colloquially referred to as the "1897 Flashback".
Amanda Harris was the creation of artist Charles Delaware Tate. Tate had the ability to mystically create artificial representations of his work. In 1895, Tate painted a portrait of a young woman who came to life and took the name Amanda Harris.
Amanda lived in New York for a time where she met former school teacher Tim Shaw. Shaw wanted to use Amanda to help him get revenge against his former mentor, Reverend Gregory Trask. He brought Amanda back to Collinsport with him and they rented two rooms at the Collinsport Inn. Shaw sent Amanda to Collinwood with instructions to endear herself to Trask, thus laying the seeds of a trap.
