"So, uh, was this like, uh... a date?"
―Amanda Cartwright

Amanda "Amy" Cartwright is a character in Sleeping Dogs. She is a potential girlfriend that Wei Shen can date.



Amanda is an American citizen with aspirations to become a writer and photographer. After finishing her term at college, she began traveling for experiences and inspirations for writing on her blog and journalistic pursuits. During which, she went to Hong Kong on a tourist visa and applied to several English Language Schools. Amanda also entered a series of relationships with several men during her stay in Hong Kong.

Events of Sleeping Dogs

While in North Point visiting several points of interest in her guidebook, Amanda turned to Wei Shen, asking if he could speak English and for directions. Wei offered to drive Amanda around town, which she accepted, giving her a brief tour of some landmarks. Upon reaching the martial arts academy, Wei encountered his old teacher - Sifu Kwok, who assumed Amanda to be Wei's fiancee. Both Wei and Amanda refuted the claims, and briefly studied and practiced kung fu at the school.

Amanda gave Wei her phone number and told him to call her. The two went on a date at the Magistrate Park. However, the park was closed at the time but Wei bribed the guard at the gate. Amanda roamed through the park with Wei taking pictures of her for her blog. The date concluded with Amanda and Wei flirting with other, leading to a brief sexual encounter.

As a result of her repeated contact with Wei, a police surveillance team followed Amanda for two weeks. It was later revealed in the report that her teaching experience on job applications was either false or greatly exaggerated. She was also seen flirting with or romantically interested in other Chinese men, making a relationship, with Wei, unlikely.
