Amber TamblynAKA Amber Rose Tamblyn

Birthplace: Santa Monica, CA

Executive summary: Joan of Arcadia

Amber Tamblyn has been a working actress since she was 11. Her father is long-time character actor Russ Tamblyn, and they worked together in several films when she was young, including Rebellious and Johnny Mysto: Boy Wizard. Beginning when she was 12 and all through her high school years, she played Emily Bowen-Quartermaine on General Hospital (her father guest starred several times, as Dr. Jacoby).

From 2003-05, she played a high school student on a mission from God in Joan of Arcadia. Her father played God in a few episodes, embodied as a dog walker. The show was beloved by church and family audiences, but Tamblyn occasionally complained that it was not written realistically enough. Riding the success of Joan of Arcadia, she wrote a book of poetry, Free Stallion, and participated in Celebrity Poker Showdown.

Since Joan of Arcadia was cancelled, Tamblyn has worked in several low-profile but well-reviewed independent films. She played the brooding, cynical Tibby in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, and in Stephanie Daley, she played a teenager accused of killing her baby.

Her godfather is Dean Stockwell.
