For those of you who watched General Hospital for many years, one of the most talented young actresses ever to appear on the show was Amber Tamblyn, who was the original Emily Bowen Quartermaine! Of course, Amber has gone on to star in primetime television and motion picture projects. However on Tuesday, Amber took to her facebook page to post a special message to her fans and colleagues just what it meant to start her career on the ABC soap. Here is what she had to say!
Amber Tamblyn: “Yesterday was General Hospital’s 50th Anniversary and I couldn’t be more proud to call myself part of their family. GH is where I learned everything about my craft- the art of emotional intelligence, of listening, of interpreting, of setting a scene on fire. It’s where I held Stuart Damon and wept when my real life Grandmother passed away, and where Stuart Damon held me and wept when Anna Lee passed away. Its where I learned how to be disciplined in what I do. Where I found myself, as an actress, as a woman, and as veteran. Its where I learned what having REAL fans in your corner can do for you: carry you into a confidence that most actresses only dream of. On GH, we burned for them and they for us. I absorbed the skilled techniques of John Homa, the turbulent genius of Maurice Bernard, the soft golden simplicity of John Ingle. Its where I had my first real life teenage secret crush (Shout out to you, Jonathan Jackson) and where I developed sister-strong bonds (double shout out, Kimberly and Becky).
General Hospital is more than an America staple. Its the staple gun. I hope every actor has a chance to experience working on a Soap, and every kid gets to grow up watching one with family. Today I am thinking only of GH and this incredible, historic milestone.”
