The 26-year-old actress was attending the TV Academy of Arts and Sciences in North Hollywood for a panel discussion in front of Emmy voters, and while doing interviews she fainted and fell to the floor.

However, she has confirmed she is fine and was simply dizzy from the paparazzi flash bulbs.

In a series of posts on Twitter, she wrote: "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."

Amber - who plays Mercedes Jones in the musical TV show - was able to continue with the panel discussion.

The third season of the show, which also stars Lea Michele, Corey Monteith and Dianna Agron, is close to wrapping up.
