Born and raised in London, Ontario, Amber Marshall is now in her sixth full season of portraying Amy Fleming on Heartland. She trained as part of The Original Kids Theatre Company in London for four years and has appeared in numerous film and television productions, displaying a remarkable range and vulnerability.
Amber was nominated for a Los Angeles based 'Young Artist Award,' for her work as the title character in The Elizabeth Smart Story, a movie-of-the-week based on the true story of the 2002 kidnapping of Utah teenager Elizabeth Smart.
She has had regular roles in two television series, The Power Strikers and Dark Oracle, and has guest appeared on different series, including Doc.
A former veterinary assistant who is passionate about all animals, Amber has been around horses as long as she can remember. She has been riding since a very young age and says that the two things she loves the most - acting and horses - have come together to create this dream role of Amy on the Heartland series.
Away from production, Amber has worked at the veterinary clinic near her home. While in production on Heartland, Amber has made a home for herself on a small ranch outside of Calgary where she is surrounded by her many animals, including horses, dogs, cats, pigs, chickens, turkeys, steers, and even a peacock. In addition to her hectic acting as the lead on Heartland and the demands her farm brings, Amber has recently announced her own engagement.
