Amber Tamblyn to become series regular on Two and a Half Men
Amber Tamblyn has already proved a ratings winner for CBS series Two and a Half Men. The actress and her lesbian character have proved so popular with audiences that the network has decided to promote her to series regular just one week after making her debut.
Tamblyn entered the series in the new season premiere playing Jenny, the lesbian daughter of Charlie Sheen's departed character Charlie Harper.
In a case of 'like father like daughter' Jenny is a womanising, hard drinking, fast living character who is set to stir things up in the household.
“We thought, ‘Wouldn’t it be fun if she was just like her father,’” Jim Patterson producer of the series told EW last month.
"She’s a fun, hard-partying girl who loves everything her father did — including women — and has the same kind of confidence her father had. It brings the debauchery back to the show from when Charlie [Sheen] was on it. She’s going to turn their lives upside down a little bit."
Tamblyn, who first made a splash in The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants, recently appeared as a series regular on House.
Speaking to AfterEllen Tamblyn identified herself as part of the Queer community, saying. “I believe in queer lifestyle. I engage in queer lifestyle. I am part of the queer community. For the most part I’m straight, but I’m not gay and I don’t think I’m bi either. I’m queer and that just means that I am a part of the community.”
She’s certainly ambiguous...
