List of Amber Benson quotes.

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 the 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.


(about her role as the lesbian Tara on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer":) "I got letters from girls saying that I changed their lives and I met people who would cry about it, and that had such an impact on me. You don't realise what an impact television has on people. But when you get letters from young girls saying, 'I came out and I have a girlfriend now because of you,' it's great."


I admit it: I'm a freak who sits obsessively in front of my computer typing my name into Yahoo Search over and over again. I'm a closet Amberholic. Please help me!
