The incident occurred while the actress, who plays Mercedes Jones in the show, was on her way into the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in North Hollywood for a panel discussion in front of Emmy voters.
After the scare, Amber Tweeted her fans to reassure them that she is OK. It is not yet known what caused her collapse.
“Hey guys, I’m okay. I got a little dizzy from all the photog flashes! You’d think I’s be used to it by now, still a red carpet amateur I guess. Gonna get checked out but I feel fine. Thank you for all the concern and well wishes. (sic)”
She also thanked the paparazzi, who did not photograph Amber while she was on the ground.
“I truly truly appreciate it. Could have been super embarrassing,” she said.
