Amber Von Tussle is the secondary antagonist of Hairspray. She is the spoiled daughter of Velma Von Tussle (and, in the original film, Franklin Von Tussle) and the girlfriend of Link Larkin (the source of her rivalry with the
protagonist, Tracy Turnblad). In both films, she is played by Colleen Fitzpatrick (later known as Vitamin C) and Brittany Snow, respectively.
At the end of the 2007 film adaption, she happens to accept her loss to dark horse candidate Inez Stubbs and, in the extended deleted ending, leaves her mother to her fate of being arrested. In either version of the ending, she is last seen watching everyone dance. In the original musical version, however, both she and her mother are redeemed.
