Isn’t love grand? After a longtime relationship with David Cross, actress and Emmy nominee Amber Tamblyn is engaged to be married, her rep confirms to People magazine. The age difference between them is 19, he can practically be her uncle or even father, but this didn’t seem to bother them.
The 28-year-old actress, who rose to fame playing Emily Quartermaine on the soap opera “General Hospital” and starred on the CBS series “Joan of Arcadia” and has also appeared in films like “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants,” “The Grudge 2,” “Main Street” and “127 Hours” but she recently returned to TV with a role on “House” is engaged to be married. It seems that Cross, 47, who is best known for his outrageousness on the 2003-06 cult sitcom Arrested Development, on which he played the gaffe-prone, madcap Tobias Fünke, popped the big question to Amber and she said yes.
For those who don’t know very well who Cross is, we can tell that he is a stand-up comedian who became famous for his work on HBO’s sketch comedy series, “Mr. Show” and for his recurring role on the FOX comedy series, “Running Wilde.” He currently appears in IFC’s British-American original comedy series, “The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret”, as the actor created, wrote and stars as Todd Margaret, a well-intentioned corporate nobody, who bluffs his way into a senior sales position at the London office for the new energy drink Thunder Muscle.
His future wife is also busy with her career so they don’t quite get the time to plan a wedding by the book. They didn’t even set a date for their nuptials, not to mention other details such as venues, menu, dress code, honeymoon location. All these are far far away. Perhaps the two lovebirds are enjoying their status as fiancé and fiancée and they don’t want to rush things. After all, this is the first reported engagement for both actors, who have been dating since 2009, and they didn’t make a fuss with that either. They celebrated their engagement with a low-key reunion with their friends and families on the patio at Oscar’s Cerveteca in Venice, Calif., where they’ve served beer for the guys and rosé for the ladies, the night continuing with casual conversation.
Congrats to the happy couple for their engagement and hope to hear wedding details as soon as possible!
