Tamblyn stars in the upcoming ABC dramedy, The Unusuals, a series about a group of New York City police detectives who handle the strangest cases in the area.
She admits that incorporating handcuffs into her action scenes in a cool, nonchalant way is extremely difficult.
Everytime she has to cuff a perp while saying her lines, shes only able to get the handcuffs on one of the criminals hands.
That causes her to lose it and start sobbing on camera, which doesnt help her look like a tough member of the NYPD.
Tamblyn explains, Oh, man, cuffing someone is so hard. To do it gracefully not even gracefully, but just to look tough. To look like you know what youre doing. Ive tried it several times.
However, co-star Adam Goldberg assures Tamblyn that shes a natural.
He jokes, Amber has also been arrested quite a few times.
The Unusuals premieres Wednesday (Apr. 8) on ABC.
