”My character and I follow many parallels in our daily lives.”
Amber also said:
”I would say that Amy has always been a little more dramatic than myself since that is what creates tension on screen.”
The series is not meant for young kids, however, most older tweens will be able to handle it.

”It’s been so incredible. Very, very rarely do you see a show go even six seasons with the same cast.”
”But people still love it. Our baby on the show is being raised by a full family. I like that concept.”
In 2015, the series passed Street Legal (a Canadian legal drama TV series, that aired on CBC Television from 1987 to 1994) to become the longest-running hour-long drama in Canadian television history.
During an interview, Amber said about her character in the series:
”I believe that over the years my character Amy has become more like myself and vice versa.”

”I think if I ever do any other projects, I’ll probably find it too easy, because I’m used to juggling so many things.”
”We are so lucky to have such incredible animal handlers and wranglers work on the show, and you usually know exactly what you’re going to get.”
“Working on a show that’s outdoors and with animals is a blessing.”
”It’s a drama. There’s always going to be tragedy.”
”I feel like a large part of my life has been spent on Heartland and I love every minute of it.”
”New ideas and visions help motivate all of the cast and crew from being complacent.”
”You can’t force some things to happen no matter how hard you try.”
”We have to be present and we have to be in the moment, and I think that’s what makes every actor great–when you can live in the moment.”

Marshall was introduced to horses shortly after saying goodbye to her toddler years.
