Once in Los Angeles, Heard made appearances in various TV shows. She was cast as Liz in the pilot episode of The WB's Jack & Bobby (2004, 14 years ago), as Riley in an episode of The Mountain (2004, 14 years ago) and she had a brief cameo as a salesgirl in The O.C. (2005, 13 years ago). Her first movie role was Maria in Friday Night Lights (2004, 14 years ago). She next starred as Shay in Side FX (2005, 13 years ago), an independent horror film, and had supporting roles in Drop Dead Sexy (2005, 13 years ago), Price to Pay (2006, 12 years ago) and You Are Here (2006, 12 years ago).

In 2006 (12 years ago) she starred in an episode of Criminal Minds as Lila Archer, a young Hollywood actress who has a crush on Spencer Reid.

Heard was next cast in the CW Network's Hidden Palms. On the show she portrayed Greta Matthews, who suffered the losses of both her mother and boyfriend, Eddie, and befriends Johnny, the anti-hero of the show. In order to get the part, Heard was asked to lose weight. It took her four months, daily workouts and a ban on carbohydrates to lose 25 pounds. Hidden Palms premiered in the US on May 30, 2007 (11 years ago). Ultimately, The CW wrapped the summer series early; instead of the initial 12 episode arc, only eight were aired. The show ended on Jul. 4, two weeks prior than originally planned.

She was next cast in the title role in All the Boys Love Mandy Lane. The horror movie premiered at the Toronto movie Festival in sep. 2006 (12 years ago), immediately generating buzz and landing a deal with Harvey Weinstein. However, nearly a year after its Toronto debut, the movie had not reached theaters. In Jul. 2007 (11 years ago), Mandy Lane found a new distribution home and the movie finally was released in 2008 (10 years ago) with a Feb.

In 2007 (11 years ago), Heard also appeared in the short movie Day 73 with Sarah and Jess Manafort's indie drama Remember the Daze (aka The Beautiful Ordinary), which premiered at the Los Angeles movie Festival in Jun. and opened in limited release in Apr. 2008 (10 years ago). She then appeared in the Judd Apatow comedy Pineapple Express and the martial arts drama Never Back Down, released in 2008 (10 years ago), back-to-back. The latter opened in Mar. and Heard played the role of the free-spirited Baja Miller who falls for Sean Faris' Jake Tyler. The movie did well in the box office and raised Heard's profile a great deal. She appeared in numerous magazines and promoted the movie internationally.

Heard also made a brief appearance in Showtime's Californication and joined the ensemble cast of The Informers, based on Bret Easton Ellis' novel of the same title, set to be released in 2009 (9 years ago). She also filmed the horror movie The Stepfather and the comedy movie Ex-Terminators back-to-back in 2008 (10 years ago) while promoting Never Back Down, Mandy Lane and Remember the Daze.

In late 2008 (10 years ago) she filmed The River Why and The Joneses; two independent features due out later this year. At the beginning of 2009 (9 years ago) The Informers made its premiere at the Sundance movie Festival. The reviews were mostly negative. Heard next appeared in Zombieland (3 walls), playing the small role of the object of Jesse Eisenberg’s affection who turns into a zombie. She will subsequently appear in John Carpenter's The Ward. In Mar. Heard begins filming The Rum Diary, opposite Johnny Depp (9 walls), in Puerto Rico. Heard is reported to have won the role out over Scarlett Johansson (60 walls) and Keira Knightley. In 2010 (8 years ago), she will star in and produce And Soon the Darkness, co-starring Odette Yustman and Karl Urban.

In the Oct. 2009 (9 years ago) issue of Teen Vogue, Amber describes her role as Johnny Depp's love interest in the film, The Rum Diary, as "the best experience of my life."
