Since the hit show Two and a Half Men made the transition from replacing Charlie Sheen with Ashton Kutcher and losing Angus T. Jones who played Alan's son, the series continues to see fantastic ratings. Along with having a slew of celebrity guests on the show, including Miley Cyrus, Steven Tyler and Jamie Pressly, Amber Tamblyn has solidified herself in the role of Jenny, Charlie Harper's long-lost lesbian daughter on the show.
The story has Jenny (Tamblyn) move to Los Angeles in order to pursue a career in acting and reconnect with her family following Harper's (Charlie Sheen) death. Two and a Half men is currently the highest rated comedy on television which is now in its 11th season.
“It's been a really fun experience,” says Tamblyn, “I was blown away by the positive response to it”. Following the loss of Angus T. Jones from the show, the Two and a Half Men team wanted to incorporate more dirty and dark humor into the series, similar to that of Charlie Sheen, so “they brought in his illegitimate, lesbian-alcoholic daughter” the actress states. Although Tamblyn admits that she didn't watch the show prior to working on it, she feels that the show has great writers and is fully dedicated to her role, “I read a script, and it was amazing and I was like, Yeah, I'll do that!.”
Well known for her work on hit series like House M.D., Joan of Arcadia, as well as hit films such as 127 Hours, Django Unchained, and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Tamblyn has been hard at work building her resume. Tamblyn was recently seen looking radiant in a Sportsmax dress at the Writers Guild Awards 2014.
The actress is currently filming X/Y in New York City with one of her best friends, and fellow Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants star - America Ferrera. Next up, you can catch her in the Gabriel Cowan drama 3 Nights in the Desert and in Growing Up and Other Lies.
