Trou­ble­maker Char­lie Sheen’s char­ac­ter Char­lie Harper is no more on sea­son 11 of sit­com Two & A Half Men (2003-2015) but his DNA is still flow­ing through the veins of his long-lost daugh­ter Jenny (Am­ber Tam­blyn). And it turns out Am­ber loves her sassy role – “I loved drop­ping the F-bomb dur­ing my screen test with Jon Cryer (Jenny’s un­cle Alan in the show),” she re­calls with de­light.

The 33-year-old has made a ca­reer 1

from play­ing ec­cen­tric char­ac­ters, like Joan Gi­rardi in fan­tasy series Joan Of Arcadia (2003-2005), who spoke to God. She adds that “play­ing in­ter­est­ing char­ac­ters is a fam­ily thing. My dad Russ Tam­blyn was Dr Ja­coby in fan­tasy show Twin Peaks (1990-1991) and my grand­dad Ed­die per­formed vaude­ville”.

Am­ber’s work isn’t the only place 2

she en­joys a touch of the un­con­ven­tional – she wore a yel­low frock to marry 52-year-old David Cross (Dr To­bias Fünke in sit­com Ar­rested De­vel­op­ment, 2003-2013) in a for­est in 2012.

As a teen, she con­vinced a home3

less man to pose as her dad to get her belly­but­ton pierced. It got in­fected and she had to tell her par­ents – Am­ber sug­gested the sto­ry­line to her writ­ers and it was used as a sto­ry­line on Joan Of Arcadia in 2003.

She’s been a pub­lished poet since 4

the age of 12 and says that “it’s so spe­cial to know that some­one else can en­joy some­thing that you felt and you con­nected with”.

Am­ber calls her best friends “my 5

girls”, from their 2005 drama film The Sis­ter­hood Of The Trav­el­ing Pants: Amer­ica Fer­rera (Amy on sit­com Su­per­store, 2015-cur­rent), Alexis Bledel (Rory on drama show Gilmore Girls, 20002007) and Blake Lively (Ser­ena on drama series Gos­sip Girl, 2007-2012).
