Amber Heard says birth on U.S.-Mexico border sparked rights activism

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

U.S. actress Amber Heard, a star of the upcoming "Aquaman" superhero movie and a U.N.

Human rights champion, said on Monday (October 22) her childhood in Texas near the Mexican border helped spark her activism.

Her father, a Texas construction worker, accrued more and more godchildren on the Mexican side of the border, and young Amber considered many of them as friends and family.

"Simply due to where I was born, a few miles north of this line, I was free to travel back and forth as I saw fit," she told an audience at the United Nations in Geneva.
