Frantz previously played the same role on The Bold and the Beautiful, where she appeared from 1997-2005. As Amber, she won a Daytime Emmy as Outstanding Younger Actress in 2001, and received nominations in the same category in 2000 and 2003. In addition, she won Best Performance by a Young Performer in a Daytime Serial at the 20th Annual Youth in Film Awards, as well as the Best Female vocalist award at the 1997 International Music Awards.

Born in Mount Clemens, Michigan, Frantz began performing at a young age. By the time she was 13 years old, she was performing The Star Spangled Banner at Detroit Pistons basketball games and other sporting events.

At age 16, Frantz left Michigan for New York City, where she landed numerous commercials. Soon she was chosen to do vocals for the television production of Bye, Bye Birdie, starring Jason Alexander and Vanessa Williams. She also appeared as Hermia in the New York Youth Theatre production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Frantz had just entered her freshman year at Marymount College in New York, as a theater major, when she won the role of Tiffany Thorne on the daytime drama Sunset Beach. In November 2006, Adrienne and her character Amber Moore crossed-over to The Young and the Restless, simultaneously in 2007 Adrienne and her character Amber Moore crossed-over to the online series, L.A. Diaries, and in July 2010, both crossed-back to The Bold and the Beautiful.

Frantz appeared in the feature films Jimmy Zip and Speedway Junky, Gus Van Sant's dark tales of runaway kids living on the streets of Las Vegas. She also filmed roles in the features Hack!, The Audition, Angst, Ed Gein: the Butcher of Plainfield, and Donna on Demand. Additionally, she did voice work on the animated series Rugrats and The Wild Thornberrys, and taped a guest-starring role on That 70s Show.

An accomplished vocal performer and songwriter, Frantz's latest album, Anomaly, was released on April 3, 2007.

Animal welfare issues have always been close to her heart, and she has worked with PETA, Save the Horses, the Humane Society's Genesis Awards, Actors & Others for Animals, Tippi Hedren's Shambala Preserve, and the Rescue Cat Association. She is also a supporter of the Pancreatic Cancer Society, Diabetes Society, and several organizations that help abused women and children.

When she is not working, Frantz enjoys writing poetry, composing music, attending concerts, skiing, playing softball, and relaxing with her three rescued cats and two Chocolate Labrador Retrievers, Lucy and Ethel.
