Tamblyn had made no secret of her support for Clinton during the campaign.
In October, the Dark Sparkler author wrote in Glamour: 'Hillary Clinton is a mom. She’s also a daughter. She’s also a grandmother. … When people tell me they dislike Hillary not because she’s a woman but because of her record alone, I think, 'How can you be sure?'
'I don’t think anyone can be. The disdain for Hillary Clinton can never be about her record alone.
'Powerful women don’t get to exist outside of context. To discount all the good she’s done in her 30 years of public service and pay attention to the bad is, at best, severely myopic.'
