Amber Marshall

Amber Marshall is known in many households for her portrayal of Amy Fleming on the long-running series, Heartland. Now in its twelfth season, Heartland has made its way into the hearts of families in more than 119 countries. Growing up in London, Ontario, Amber trained with The Original Kids Theatre Company and attended Lester B. Pearson School for the Arts.

When Amber was cast on the Canadian production, she moved to Alberta, where the series is based. After a number of years working hands-on with the creation of the show, Amber expanded her involvement in TV production, becoming a Consulting Producer.

Amber was honoured with the inaugural Fan Choice Award a few years ago at the Canadian Screen Awards. She has displayed an incredible range and vulnerability in other television productions like Super Rupert, Dark Oracle, Doc, The Christmas Shoes, and Mutant World. Most notable is her strong performance as the title character in The Elizabeth Smart Story.

Wanting to be a veterinarian from a young age, Amber began working at a local vet clinic near her parents' home when she was 14-years-old. She has always been passionate about animals and has been riding horses since she's been a toddler. Amber says that the two things she loves the most - acting and horses - have come together to create the dream role of Amy Fleming on Heartland.

Ever since Heartland's premiere twelve years ago, Amber fit right in to the lifestyle of the West. She has since made a home with her husband, Shawn on a ranch outside of Calgary where they live and care for their horses and a variety of farm animals.
