Amanda Bynes is sober and wants to get back into acting
 Amanda Bynes is ready for the next act in her career.

The former child star, 31, said she's sober and eager to start acting again after a tumultuous stretch of years plagued by legal issues.

"I do miss acting and I have something surprising to tell you: I'm going to start acting again," she told journalist Diana Madison on ABC News' "Good Morning America" in what was her first interview in four years.

"I want to do TV," she continued. "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."

Bynes, who retired from acting in 2012, was arrested that year for driving under the influence, but that charge was ultimately dropped. She was arrested again the following year for criminal possession of marijuana — an incident where she famously tossed what police determined was a bong out of her 36th floor apartment in a Manhattan sky-rise.

She was also twice placed under psychiatric hold and taken to a hospital between 2013 and 2014, with the first time coming after she allegedly sparked a fire on a neighbor's driveway. She was arrested for DUI for a second time as well in 2014.

Happy 30th birthday, Amanda Bynes! As the former child star celebrates a milestone in her life, take a look back at her career as she went from a Nickelodeon celebrity to a troubled teen. Here, Bynes hides behind a massive pair of sunglasses as she makes a rare appearance at Craigs restaurant in West Hollywood. The troubled star narrowly avoided a wardrobe malfunction in a low cut dress using her long blond locks to cover up on Nov. 30, 2015.

"I love it. I learned how to sew," Bynes said. "I make patterns and I want to start a clothing line in the future."

Bynes rose to fame in the 1990s as a star on Nickelodeon's "All That," as well as her own series "The Amanda Show."

She also turned in memorable big screen performances in "She's the Man," "Hairspray" and "What a Girl Wants" during the 2000s, but has not appeared in a film or on TV since 2010, when she starred in the movie "Easy A."
