Longmire, Banshee, and Fame

In 2012, Midthunder was cast in one of her most notable roles alongside her father, in the series “Longmire”, which is based on the novels by Craig Johnson entitled “The Walt Longmire Mysteries”, focusing on a Wyoming Sheriff as he investigates major crimes, along with various associates. During its run with A&E it became one of the best shows of the network, and would run until 2014 when the network decided to no longer renew I, and although it was picked up by Netflix, she was no longer a part of the cast.

In 2016, Amber was involved in two film projects, the first being the crime thriller film entitled “Hell or High Water”, which stars Chris Pine and Ben Foster; the two do a series of bank robberies to help save their family ranch, while being chased by two Texas Rangers. The second film is “Priceless” which is inspired by true events, focusing on human trafficking and stars her alongside Bianca Santos.

After a guest role in the series entitled “The Originals”, she then had another notable role in the series “Legion”, playing the role of Kerry Loudermilk, based on the Marvel Comics character David Haller or Legion who is a mutant and connected to the “X-Men” film series.
