Biography

Like many up-and-coming actresses in Hollywood, Amber Heard made her mark playing overtly sexualized teens. But she steadily proved herself to be more than just a pretty face by tackling roles in a variety of genres, whether it was comedy, action or adventure. Heard launched her career with small parts on television shows like the hit teen drama "The O.C." (Fox, 2003-07), and had featured roles in "Friday Night Lights" (2004) and in "North Country" (2005). She also proved her comedic chops in the comedy "Pineapple Express" (2008) opposite Seth Rogen and James Franco. In 2011, Heard was cast in the much buzzed about drama series "The Playboy Club" (NBC, 2011- ), about the Bunnies and patrons of the famed Playboy Chicago hot spot in the 1960s. Projects with some of Hollywood's most bankable men in films like "Drive Angry" (2011) with Nicholas Cage and "The Rum Diary" (2011) opposite Johnny Depp further bolstered the young actress' increased visibility on the big screen. Beautiful, talented and not afraid to tackle controversy in either her professional or personal choices, Heard quickly became one of the most watched actresses in the business.
