she was one of the best-looking and most popular girls at
Erinsborough High, Lance Wilkinson
never thought he stood a chance with Amy Greenwood. He was
thrilled when she agreed to go on a date with him, but after
a while, it became clear that Lance didn't fit in with her
and her group of friends. Anne didn't really take to her brother's
new girlfriend either, seeing her as quite cruel and gossipy.
Amy encouraged Lance to get an earring, telling him it would
make him cooler, but he changed his mind at the last minute.
When Lance met Amy's friends, he realised that they shared
everything with each other and that he would have to prepare
to be scrutinised.
a prank at school, Anne got
the blame, although Lance knew that Amy and her friends were
to blame. Lance was stuck between his sister and girlfriend,
but decided to keep them both sweet by taking the blame himself.
After Amy forced Lance into holding a party at Number 32,
things got out of hand and Amy's friend Mitch put his fist
through the wall, leaving a huge hole. Ruth eventually found
out and Lance began to wonder if dating Amy was more trouble
than it was worth.
relationship with Lance was one of the rockiest ever to occur
in Erinsborough. They split up on a regular basis and Lance
used many different tactics to win her back. He pretended
to have a secret admirer and showered Amy with gifts.
Amy's friend, Jacinta was angry at Lance for humiliating her
in class, she played a prank, printing indecent material about
Susan Kennedy in the school
newsletter, then allowed Lance to take the blame. This resulted
in him being suspended and his friends, including Amy, became
determined to prove his innocence. After staging a very public
break-up, Amy got friendly with Jacinta and got her to admit
to setting up Lance. Jacinta was horrified to find she'd been
set up, but Amy and Lance triumphantly told them they were
still together. After this, Amy stopped hanging around her
old mates. She quickly mellowed and became good friends with
Anne, Billy Kennedy and Toadie
was always the more forceful personality in the relationship.
Whenever she got an idea into her head, she would force Lance
to go along with it. She wanted them to go ballroom dancing
and although it took a little persuasion, they started lessons.
Lance was determined to keep it a secret, but when his clothes
were stolen, he was forced to wear his outfit in public and
Toadie caught him out.
Amy's parents went away for the holidays, she was determined
to spend her time with Lance. They tried to convince Ruth
to let her stay, but when Ruth caught them pashing on the
couch, she put an end to it all. Meanwhile, a new arrival
in town, Drew Kirk, caught Amy's
eye as she convinced him to pose topless for photographs.
This caused Lance to be extremely jealous and decide to update
his image with some fake tan. Unfortunately, he ended up orange,
which perversely left Amy all the more eager to photograph
ended up staying at Number 26 over the holidays and still
got to see plenty of Lance. Amy was clearly ready to take
things further with Lance, but with Phil
and Ruth watching, they barely got to spend any time together.
Lance's jealousy of Amy spending time with Joel
caused them to split up again. Both Amy and Lance became determined
to prove they were moving on, but only succeeded in making
each other jealous. Amy started hanging around with Bill,
making it clear that they were more than just friends whenever
Lance was around. Meanwhile, Lance was doing the same thing
with Caitlin. Amy finally confronted Caitlin in the toilets
at Little Tommy Tucker's and warned her to stay away for Lance.
This finally proved that neither Lance nor Amy were over each
other and they got back together.
war began at Erinsborough High when both Anne and Amy decided
to run for the post of school captain in their final year.
Lance was torn once again between his sister and his girlfriend
and when the votes were tied, it seemed someone had voted
twice, with Lance as prime candidate. Susan was forced to
give the girls joint responsibility for the position. Amy
found this to be the perfect set-up - she could sit back and
relax while Anne did all the work. This became evident as
they organised the 40-hour foxtrot. However, Amy took the
competition side of things seriously, quickly setting her
sights on the trophy. When she and Lance won, she made sure
nobody would ever be allowed to forget her victory.
decided to learn to drive but after realising how bad she
was and how many lessons she'd need, she decided to get a
job during the school break. She managed to convince Harold
and Madge to take her on at
the Coffee Shop, but soon realised that she could cut her
workload in half by dragging in Lance. Of course, he still
hadn't learned to say no to her and was also hiding a dark
had been developing a gambling problem over a number of months.
Although Amy had previously known about it, she'd made Lance
promise to stop gambling. While she thought her ultimatum
had worked, Lance was continuing to gamble and steal from
his own family. When Anne found out, word soon got back to
Amy and she ended their already-fragile relationship, no longer
able to trust her boyfriend. Although Lance begged her to
take him back, she remained adamant that she no longer understood
him and they'd be better off alone. During the end of year
camping trip, the couple got close again and Lance was hopeful
that they'd manage to patch things up.
the camping trip, Amy went away with her mum to a health farm.
When she returned, Lance was convinced she'd be ready to give
things another go and so was shocked when she told him it
was over for good. When the kids' exam results arrived, Amy
was disappointed to find she'd fallen just short of her choice
to study Chinese alternative therapies.
all this, Amy threw herself into helping the Ramsay Street
men practice for their Full Monty performance at the
pub. She also agreed to help out Billy, who was worried that
his girlfriend, Anne, would get accepted to Dawber University
and move away to Queensland. When a Uni-FM competition gave
him the opportunity to get the money to visit, Amy agreed
to help him out. However, they were both shocked when their
first challenge was to kiss for half an hour. Guilt led them
to try to keep their kiss a secret from Anne when she returned
from visiting her grandparents in Broome, but Anne found out.
When she realised why they had kissed, she forgave her friend
after her university disappointment, Amy shocked everyone
by announcing her plans to become a flight attendant. Once again,
Lance and Amy became friends, so he was disappointed when
she introduced Damien Smith, a friend from her hostess training.
As Amy began to found her course difficult and realised she
was on the verge of failing, Lance came to the rescue, helping
her to pass through to the next stage with plenty of study.
When Bill and Anne accidentally invited both Lance and Amy
over for dinner at the same time, they thought it might help
to reunite the couple. However, they spent the entire evening
arguing and this led to Amy starting to avoid her friends.
when Lance's gambling problem resurfaced, Amy was the only
one he seemed to allow to get close to him. As his family
began to abandon him, Amy helped Lance to put his feelings
across to his mum. When Anne won a court case and was given
Lily Madigan's house, Amy suggested that the gang all move
in there together. Lance was thrilled, thinking Amy wanted
to give things another go, and even move in together. However,
they were all to be disappointed when Anne rented the house
to someone else.
Lance's friend Julia arrived from Mildura, Amy began to feel
pangs of jealousy, seeing them so happy together. Although
Julia went back home, Lance found her visit brought him a
new lease of life and he began dating Megan Townsend. Amy
took an instant dislike to Megan, finding her to be an awful
match for Lance. This only pushed Lance and Amy further apart.
Amy had begun seeing her friend, Damien. However, after seeing
Lance so happy, she decided to exaggerate the details of her
relationship to her friends, telling them that Damien wanted
her to move in with him. When Damien found out about this,
he quickly dumped her. Amy decided not to tell her friends
about this, leading them to believe that Damien was simply
busy with work. However, after one too many excuse, Amy finally
admitted the truth to Anne.
Sarah Beaumont left for Amsterdam,
Lance and Amy entered into another battle - for her old room
at Number 30. At the "Single and Suffering" night
at the university, Lance and Amy were shocked to be named
as King and Queen of the ball and forced to kiss on stage,
until Amy quickly broke it off and ran out. Everyone could
see that Amy and Lance still had feelings for each other,
but he continued to see Megan. When Amy followed Lance and
Megan one evening, her suspicions were confirmed when she
overheard Megan talking to a friend. It seemed that Megan
only went out with Lance for a bet and Amy was left with the
task of breaking this news to him. Unfortunately, he took
his anger out on Amy and confronted Megan, who denied the
whole thing. When she eventually admitted to it, Lance took
off for a while to a spot where he used to go fishing as a
child. After spending the night there together, Lance and
Amy got close to getting back together.
Lance and Amy's battle to get the number thirty spare room
heated up, the pair of them acted as slaves to Joel and Toadie.
Amy also met Spiro Politis, a triathlete rival of Joel's whom
she started seeing casually. When Lance and Amy realised Joel
and Toadie had used them as slaves, they exacted their revenge
and got ever closer to getting back together. While both of
them appeared nonchalant about the whole thing, and Amy's
relationship with Spiro didn't exactly work out, it was obvious
that they were still deeply in love.
decided to give things another try. However, they kept it
from their friends and Joel began to realise he was falling
for Amy. As she helped him out with a job as a stripper, he
began to see a different side to her and decided to make a
move on her. Amy was forced to admit that she and Lance were
once again a couple. When Lance found out about the kiss,
he wondered if he'd done the right thing getting back with
problems also reared their head for Amy as her credit card
spending got out of hand. In a bid to make some money, she
got involved in a pyramid scheme, known as the aeroplane game.
She convinced more and more friends to get involved; Joel
gave her a particularly large sum of money from his stripping
gig as he was also short of cash and needed some fast. Unfortunately,
Amy lost everyone's money. Her guilt led her to begin doing
charity work, but this didn't suit Amy and everyone saw straight
Anne and Bill had split up, Anne began seeing an artist friend,
Fanto. When Fanto propositioned Amy, asking her to pose nude
for him, she did the decent thing and declined, then told
Anne about the incident. Anne was unconvinced, although quickly
saw through Fanto when he tried to charge her too much rent.
Anne went to stay with the Greenwoods. Meanwhile, Amy seemed
to be disappearing for days on end. When Lance finally caught
up with her, she agreed to attend the Millennium Eve party
in Ramsay Street. However, her lack of interest and inability
to arrive at the party was soon revealed to be because she
was once again seeing Damien, this time behind Lance's back.
found it difficult to keep her affair a secret from Lance,
but found it even more difficult to tell him the truth, despite
pressure from Damien. However, this was all put on the backburner
when Amy's health gave her cause for concern. Lance insisted
she see Karl about it and he suggested she may be pregnant.
Anne told Amy she had to know for certain and Amy took a home
pregnancy test, which was positive. Anne insisted that her
brother be told, but Amy was forced to admit that the baby
was Damien's, not Lance's.
pressured Amy into telling Lance, but Amy couldn't admit the
truth, only telling Lance that they should stop seeing each
other. Lance quickly rebounded back to Julia from Mildura
while Amy received a marriage proposal from Damien. She declined,
admitting he might feel differently if he knew about the baby.
Lance was devastated to learn the truth about why Amy dumped
him, causing a big fallout with his sister, who had known
all along. However, Lance also proved what a decent guy he
could be when he visited Damien and told him the truth about
Amy's predicament. Damien proposed once again to Amy and they
made plans to move to Damien's flat, closer to the airport.
Amy made her final appearance in Ramsay Street just before
jetting off to Fiji for her wedding. Her friends held a pool
party for her and Lance told Amy she was his first love and
that he hoped she'd be happy.
this day, the legendary fights between Lance and Amy are still
mentioned by the residents of Number 30 Ramsay Street.
