Amber Foley is a recurring character on 13 Reasons Why. She is the mother of Justin Foley and boyfriend of Seth. She is portrayed by Jackie Geary.

Amber's negligent parenting has a profound effect on Justin. Her boyfriend, Seth, regularly abuses Justin, both verbally and physically, prompting him to leave with Amber showing no immediate concern for her son's well-being or whereabouts.

Early Life

Amber raised her son Justin alone, and has been neglectful towards him. It is implied that she has had a lot of (abusive) boyfriends and has been a drug addict for most of her life.

Throughout the Series

Amber is first seen when Jessica goes to her house to ask if Justin is there. Amber tells her that she hasn't seen him for days and thought he was with her. Seth mentions that Amber was worried sick.[1]

Justin and Seth later get into an argument, and Amber tells them that they are acting like kids. Justin tells her that either he goes or Seth goes. Amber doesn't send Seth away but gets him a beer instead, so Justin leaves the house.[2]

When Seth strangles Justin, Amber tells him to stop because the neighbours will call the police. After he stops, she walks out the room with him, leaving a crying Justin behind.[3]

In Season 2, Kevin Porter goes to Amber's house because he's looking for Justin. Amber tells him that Justin has run away and can take care of himself, and that he always has.[4]

Later, Justin comes home, and Amber seems happy that he's back. She tells Justin that she missed him and notices his wounds from injecting heroin. She tells him that she never wanted this life for him and that he doesn't deserve it. Justin asks why she's still with Seth, to which Amber replies that he loves her. Justin suggests that they could get away together and find a new place. Amber tells him she can't and asks him to promise that he will stay this time because she needs him there.

Not long after that, Amber catches Justin taking more of Seth's money. Justin tells her that he's leaving and that she should too. Amber tells him that Seth will kill her when he finds out. Justin then leaves some money for her and tells her that he won't if he can't find her.[5]

When Justin is in juvenile detention, Lainie Jensen and Dennis Vasquez search for Amber for weeks because Justin has to be released into custody, but they can't find her.[6]

Personality

Amber is a drug addict with a passive personality and is usually too scared of Seth to defend Justin.
