Kirsten-Prout.net was created by a few of Kirsten’s fans who met on kylexy.net, a fansite for the TV series Kyle XY. The original fansite for Kirsten, kirstenprout.webs.com, was created in 2009 by Lauren (USA) (singingxoxo on kylexy.net) who felt that Kirsten deserved a fansite of her own for the many fans she gained with her talented portrayal of Amanda on Kyle XY.
Kirsten (Amanda), Matt Dallas (KyleXY) and Jaimie Alexander (JessieXX) were the main cast members with Kirsten doing a superb job as the girl next door competing with the genetically enhanced but disturbed Jessie for Kyle’s attention. When Lauren found she didn’t have enough time to look after kirstenprout.webs.com, two fans from kylexy.net agreed to run the site.
The first was our admin, kxyfan (Karen) from Texas, USA who had connected with Kirsten on MySpace and is the driving force and owner of the current website. One of Kirsten’s biggest fans, Karen keeps in contact with a representative of Kirsten to make sure our site is up to date on the latest news on Kirsten and her career.
Our other admin was Canajun_eh from Toronto, Canada who created a fan thread on kylexy.net, called “The Guild of Amanda Adorers” to recognize Kirsten’s strong contribution to the show. He felt that Kirsten wasn’t getting the credit she deserved on kylexy.net forums where Matt Dallas has a very strong fan group and many of Kirsten’s fans agreed with him. Although Canajun_eh is no longer with the site, we will always be grateful to him for helping us get the site up and running.
Early in 2011, we were planning to move our fansite to fansites.org and we were delighted that Kirsten agreed to designate us as her “Official Fansite”. The site was created in consultation with Kirsten and with the invaluable technical support and input from our friends Hayley (the creator of “The Essential Matt Dallas Forum” http://mdallas.net and zacharylevifan.com) from England and Patty from the Netherlands. Without them the site would never have gotten on the net and they provide ongoing support and advice for the site. Patty stepped into an admin role soon after we started the site and continues in that role today. We can’t say enough how thankful we are for the invaluable help that Hayley continues to provide our site.
Kirsten-Prout.net is the best place on the web for Kirsten’s fans to keep updated.

We’re still hunting for the missing ones and if you have any that are not in our galleries, we’d love to have them.
