Biography

Having had her start at an early age, actress Amber Tamblyn jumped into the limelight at 10 years old and never looked back, playing the popular character, Emily Quatermaine, for six years on the soap opera, "General Hospital" (ABC, 1963- ). But it was her starring turn on the short-lived, but acclaimed "Joan of Arcadia" (CBS, 2003-05) that provided the young actress with her breakout role. Because of that show's brief success, Tamblyn was able to branch out into feature films, most notably in "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" (2005), which proved to be a strong stepping stone for bigger and better projects. Following a supporting turn in "The Grudge 2" (2007), she spread her wings in the bleak adult drama "Stephanie Daley" (2007) before returning to familiar ground with "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2" (2008). While a return to series television with the quirky cop drama, "The Unusuals" (ABC, 2009), failed to live up to expectations, Tamblyn proved versatile in the courtroom drama "Beyond a Reasonable Doubt" (2009) and the stark survival drama "127 Hours" (2010), allowing her to boost her profile while demonstrating a wider range of appeal.
