Personal Quote:

I'm really klutzy. I'm always tripping over stuff. I'm always trying to not walk into the camera. I was shooting a scene in a TV show and I kept sneezing. Glenn Frey, of Eagles, was opposite me, and when we were filming, he said, "Can we please stop? Amber needs a Kleenex". That was really embarrassing, and I don't mind sharing. See more »


According to Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997) producer Marti Noxon, series creator Joss Whedon originally rejected her for the role of "Tara", feeling she wasn't the proper physical type. But Noxon insisted that she be allowed to read for the part again, and it was at the second audition that Whedon realized she would be perfect for the part. See more »
