Amy Porter is a natural leader with a rebellious streak and loves the drama of confrontation. There isn’t a cause Amy won’t adopt nor will she miss an opportunity to take offence.

Amy joined Waterloo Road in series five after the merger with Private School John Fosters. Amy became heavily embroiled in the girl gang culture and was a lead antagonist in the violence that followed. When Finn Sharkey joined later in the series this melodramatic couple soon brought the worst out in each other and Finn eventually drove Amy to agree to suicide pact. Chris caught them in time and in series six Amy enjoyed a quieter year – growing closer to Lauren Andrews after her and Sambuca drifted apart. In series seven Amy really struggles to cope with Sam’s diagnosis. Amy left the series when her mother got a new job in North Yorkshire.
