Mae Whitman stars on “Parenthood,” NBC’s shaggy, tear-inducing family drama, as Amber, a spunky, increasingly together, emotionally astute free spirit. The 24-year-old Whitman has been acting for the last 18 years (nope, that’s not a typo). She appeared in everything from “Hope Floats” and “Independence Day,” to “Arrested Development” and “In Treatment” before arriving on “Parenthood,” which, to judge from Whitman’s words, is the loveliest, kindest workplace in all the world — exactly as it seems to be. Whitman spoke to me about the series, her interest in national parks, her obsession with “Friday Night Lights” — which was also overseen by “Parenthood’s” creator Jason Katims — and her dreams about Tim Riggins. And, yes, she also cries while watching “Parenthood.”
