Gina Wilhelm Actress - Amber Tamblyn
Amber Tamblyn joins the cast of "House" tonight for a 13-episode arc. When she got the offer, she knew of the show's star, Hugh Laurie, primarily from his work on "Black Adder."
Of Mr. Laurie, Tamblyn said, "He's incredible. He's been so much fun to work with." She was in awe of his ability to carry a program for seven years.
Tamblyn, of course, was the title character of the show "Joan of Arcadia" for two years and knows whereof she speaks.
She originally didn't want to do "House," believing it just a medical show. She has since learned that, "it's a very complex show about complex characters and their dark traits, their light traits, everything."
Tamblyn will be playing the "annoyingly smart" Martha Masters until at least March. "House" airs on Fox on Monday nights at 8 p.m.
