"I do miss acting and I have something surprising to tell you: I’m going to start acting again," Bynes told Hollyscoop's Diana Madison. "I want to do TV. Maybe a few guest spots on some shows that I’m a fan of and maybe another TV show where I’m the star of it."
Amanda Bynes Says She's Sober and Ready to Return to TV
Bynes revealed at the time that she had been sober for three years, and was currently focusing on another career path as well. "I've been going to school lately. Fashion school -- FIDM [Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising] -- and I love it," she shared. "I learned how to sew. I've made patterns and I want to start a clothing line in the future."
In a statement to ET last month, Bynes' family attorney, Tamar Arminak, said that the actress and her parents were on "good terms and happy with Amanda's life and future."
"The fact that Amanda is living on her own, making her own decisions and future plans is something her parents are so proud of," Arminak said, revealing the family wasn't thinking about her conservatorship, which was put in place in 2014 after several run-ins with police and an involuntary psychiatric hold.
"Finally she is surrounded by friends and companions she can trust and really open up to. She feels free to be herself, which brings her so much happiness and excitement for the future," Arminak continued of Bynes. "She is looking forward to graduating and the next phase of her life."
