Biography for Amber Tamblyn

Amber Rose Tamblyn (born May 14, 1983 (38 years ago)) is an American actress. She appeared on the soap opera General Hospital followed by a starring role on the TV series Joan of Arcadia. She has branched out into movie roles, appearing in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and The Grudge 2. Her most recent work includes a co-starring role in the upcoming movie Beyond a Reasonable Doubt with Michael Douglas and in the cancelled TV show The Unusuals.

Early life

Tamblyn was born in Santa Monica, California, the daughter of Russ Tamblyn, an actor, dancer, and singer, and Bonnie Murray, a singer, teacher, and artist. Her paternal grandfather, Eddie Tamblyn, was a vaudeville performer. At the age of ten, she played Pippi Longstocking at the Santa Monica Alternative School House; her father's agent, Sharon Debord, was attending as a family friend and ended up convincing her father to allow Tamblyn to go on auditions.


Tamblyn first tv role was Emily Bowen (later known as Emily Quartermaine) on the soap opera General Hospital, a role that she played for six years (from 1995 (26 years ago) to 2001 (20 years ago)). She also starred in the pilot episode of the revived Twilight (54 walls) Zone series on UPN in 2002 (19 years ago).

Tamblyn became better known playing Joan Girardi, a teenage girl who receives frequent visits from God, on the CBS drama series Joan of Arcadia. Tamblyn's father made several appearances as God in the form of a dog walker on the show, which ran from 2003 (18 years ago) to 2005 (16 years ago).

Tamblyn was supposed to return to CBS in the 2007 (14 years ago) pilot Babylon Fields, an apocalyptic comedic drama about the undead trying to resume their former lives. However, the network excluded the show from its Fall 2007 (14 years ago) programming lineup, since it would compete with the network's other undead-themed drama, Moonlight.

Tamblyn starred in The Unusuals, playing NYPD homicide detective Casey Shraeger in this crime drama. The show was cancelled after just one season.

Notable guest roles include Buffy the Vampire Slayer (playing Janice Penshaw, the best friend of Dawn Summers), as well as Boston Public, CSI: Miami, and Punk'd (where Ashton Kutcher (6 walls) and his crew members tricked her into losing someone else's dog).

Awards and nominations

The role of Joan Girardi earned her both Golden Globe and Emmy nominations in 2004 (17 years ago). Tamblyn was also nominated for a Saturn award for Best Actress In a TV Series in both 2004 (17 years ago) and 2005 (16 years ago), winning in 2004 (17 years ago) Other nominations include The Teen Choice Awards, The Golden Satellite Awards and The Young Artist Award.


Tamblyn launched her movie career playing bit parts in her father's movies: Rebellious and Johnny Mysto: Boy Wizard. She also appeared in 1995's Live Nude Girls.

Her first major movie role was in 2005's The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, co-starring Alexis Bledel (9 walls), America Ferrera, and Blake Lively. She also starred in its 2008 (13 years ago) sequel The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2.

Her horror movie career began with the opening scene of 2002's The Ring. Tamblyn's also appeared in the Japan-set The Grudge 2, a sequel to The Grudge. The film, which also stars Sarah Michelle Gellar (29 walls), was released on Oct. 13, 2006 (15 years ago), and debuted in the #1 spot at the North American box office. Tamblyn, who learned about Japanese culture while filming the role, agreed to star in the movie because she had wanted to play the lead in a horror film.

In Aug. 2006 (15 years ago), Tamblyn won the Bronze Leopard at the Locarno International movie Festival for her performance in the title role of Stephanie Daley. The film, which also won an award at the 2006 (15 years ago) Sundance movie Festival, features Tamblyn as a 16-year-old who kills her baby moments after giving birth in the bathroom of a ski resort. She was also nominated for Best Actress at the Independent Spirit Awards. The movie also stars Tilda Swinton and Timothy Hutton.

Tamblyn will next appear in Spring Breakdown, also featuring Amy Poehler and Rachel Dratch, and Blackout, a thriller by Italian writer Gianluca Morozzi, in which her character will be trapped in an elevator for nearly 24 hours.

In Jan. 2008 (13 years ago), Tamblyn appeared in the Hallmark movie, The Russell Girl about a woman suffering from disease and mental anguish.


Tamblyn has self-published two chapbooks of poetry, Of the Dawn and Plenty of Ships, and has participated in poetry readings at various venues, particularly in California. The Loneliest, a poem book inspired by Thelonious Monk and his music, was published in 2005 (16 years ago) and contains haiku poetry written by Tamblyn and coupled with collages by George Herms. Only 300 copies of the book were published.

In 2005 (16 years ago), Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing published a book of poems that she wrote over the span of seven years entitled Free Stallion. The School Library Journal's review states that, "Free Stallion is a compilation of poetry that amounts to a portrait of the artist as a teenager.... Many of the selections are appropriately self-absorbed but move beyond journalistic catharsis to real insight and stunning language for one so young."

In Oct. 2006 (15 years ago), Tamblyn did several poetry readings in California, including a few with poet Derrick Brown. In 2008 (13 years ago), she was featured in the Write Bloody Publishing anthology, The Last American Valentine: Illustrated poems to seduce and destroy.

Tamblyn appears in an upcoming poetry concert movie recorded on Aug. 4, 2007 (14 years ago) in Los Angeles, "The Drums Inside Your Chest." Premiere date: Apr. 26, 2009 (12 years ago) at the Newport Beach movie Festival.

A new collection of poetry, Bang Ditto, is forthcoming in sep. 2009 (12 years ago) from Manic D Press.

Personal life

Tamblyn is dating comedian and actor David Cross. She has been a vegetarian since 2005 (16 years ago), stating that what keeps her from becoming a vegan is her taste for cheese.

In Feb. 2005 (16 years ago), Tamblyn was threatened by a stalker. He pledged to "torture her for a million years" and "drill things into her kneecaps," among other acts of violence. Frightened, Tamblyn phoned the police. A restraining order was issued forbidding the man from coming within 100 yards of her.

She is the goddaughter of actors Dean Stockwell and Dennis Hopper and musician Neil Young. Her uncle is Larry Tamblyn, who was keyboardist in the 60s rock band The Standells. Stockwell and her father, Russ Tamblyn, appeared together in the movie The Boy with Green Hair and in the Quantum Leap episode "Thou Shalt Not...".
