Hi, my name is Tara
Though the pronunciations I've gotten over the years are quite impressive.
Let's play 3 truths and lie:
1) My first role ever was playing Captain Von Trapp in The Sound of Music.
2) I have a prank video that has 50+ million views on youtube.
3) I have done a reality show once.
4) I can lick my elbow.
Except, they're all true.
I reside in NYC. I'm born and bred here. I love the place so much, I never lived anywhere else for too long.
I have appeared in a variety of film, television, music video, documentary, and theatre productions. You may have seen me off-broadway in The Laramie Project, in the feature film Exit 0, on the TV show Prospects, and in the documentary From Liberty to Captivity, to just name a few. My ability to transform into a character has been recognized by the IMDb Film Festival with “Best Actress” and “Best Acting Duo” awards.
I studied Acting at Marymount Manhattan College, graduating with a B.A. in Theatre. I also studied at William Esper Acting Studio, ACTeen, and completed the 2 year conservatory program at Playhouse West Studio 4. In addition to acting, I am a writer as well!
I have the ability to be an LA local hire and a CT local hire. I am currently studying with Matt Newton in his Advanced On-Camera class, and I am also studying with Myra Turley and Tannis Vallely.
Other than acting, I love making to-do lists and checking them off, writing poetry (I love sharing it when asked, but if I've ever asked you to read it first- you're a rare one!) doing yoga outside, playing basketball, sketching in my little sketch book I carry around, and playing with my 2 cavapoo puppies, Nala and Mila. (Please ask me for pictures!)
