Actress Amber Tamblyn very nearly did something quite extreme in reaction to Donald Trump’s presidential election win in November 2016.

Tamblyn, who has starred in such films as “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants,” said during a panel discussion over the weekend at the Vulture Fest in Los Angeles that she considered giving up her own baby for adoption in another country when it sunk in that Democrat Hillary Clinton had lost on election night.

Tamblyn’s story is reportedly part of an upcoming essay collection she wrote called “Era of Ignition: Coming of Age in a Time of Rage and Revolution.”

The actress said of understanding that Trump would become America’s next president, “A dark realization swallowed me: I was going to bring a baby into this world. And not just any baby: a girl.”

She considered giving up her child in Canada or Sweden — to avoid Trump’s presidency.

The day after Trump’s victory in the presidential election, Tamblyn said she experienced a panic attack and thought for a moment that she was going into labor in a subway station after she collapsed on some stairs.

Tamblyn’s daughter was born in February of last year. The actress did not put her up for adoption.

Tamblyn shares her child with David Cross, an actor and comedian who is just as far-Left as she is.

Cross, who is most well known for starring in the television show “Arrested Development,” reportedly joked in August during a show at the University of Utah about murdering President Donald Trump.

Tamblyn, 35, has grown increasingly political in recent years because of her opposition to Trump.

She mocked the president on an episode of “Lip Sync Battle” and even shared a story of sexual assault following the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape, in which the president made lewd remarks about women in private — remarks he later apologized for and chalked up as “locker room talk.”

Tamblyn has appeared in such popular films as “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants,” “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2,” “The Grudge 2,” and “127 Hours.”

She has also starred in the television shows “Two and a Half Men,” “House,” “Joan of Arcadia,” and “CSI: Miami.”

Her first novel, titled “Any Man,” was released this year and her upcoming essay collection, which includes the story about her thoughts on giving up her baby for adoption, is about her political awakening in the age of Trump.
