More Amber Tamblyn Bios & Profiles
Biography #2 (for The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants)An experienced and stunning actor from an early age, Amber Tamblyn's dedication to her craft is shown in plain light with the multifaceted characters she brings to life.
The CBS hit series Joan of Arcadia began its second season at the end of September, carrying with it three 2004 Emmy nominations, including Tamblyn's nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series and Outstanding Drama Series. Last year, the role earned her a Golden Globe nomination for Best Dramatic Actress in a Drama Series and picked up its first People's Choice Award for Best New Series in January.
Tamblyn's latest film credit was a role in the smash hit The Ring, directed by Gore Verbinski. She gained the most notoriety on the small screen with her portrayal of Emily Quartermaine on ABC's General Hospital. What was originally only to be a few months' work turned into a seven-year stint on the show as she won viewer's hearts, critical acclaim, and two consecutive Hollywood Reporter Young Star Awards for Best Young Actress in a Daytime Series. Her stellar work on General Hospital earned her a multitude of roles for television. Tamblyn was in the starring role for the premiere episode of UPN's series, The Twilight Zone. Other television guest-starring roles included Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Boston Public, CSI: Miami and Without a Trace. She also did a short series film for Showtime called Ten Minutes Older: The Trumpet.
Tamblyn credits her father, veteran actor Russ Tamblyn (West Side Story, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Tom Thumb and Twin Peaks), as the guiding light for her continuing success. He was wary when talent agencies were seeking out the fresh young actor with such finely-honed skills, but his faith in her was well-founded as it led to a number of independent film roles and her later accomplishments on television. Having established her reputation as a top young performer, Amber's starring role in CBS's series Joan of Arcadia has propelled her to her rightful place alongside other acting greats. Her co-stars on the show are Joe Montegna and Mary Steenburgen.
