Tara is a very talented young actress. We have worked with her on a number of occasions and she has always blown us away with what she can do. Tara can be the most bad ass girl in the room in one scene, then quickly change to a seductive vixen in the next. We had a chance to catch up with her recently, and ask her a few questions. Here is what she had to say…
What is some of the work you have done in the past?
Most recently I have had the honor to work with Witch Doctor Films as the lead role of Sadie Pussycat in the “Hell’s Pussy Cats” trailer as well as “Anti Zombie Force II Dammed City” and “El Toro Azuls Monster Movie A Go Go”. I have worked with other local independent film makers and landed the lead role in “Purple Haze” which hit local theaters last year. My next film project is playing the lead role in “The Presence” which will start filming this summer and a small role in “Sometimes She Bites”. My other passion is choreographing dance and fashion runway shows. Last year I had the pleasure to work with some very talented acts while choreographing talent shows and a few dance/cheer competitions. My past project includes short films and plays such as “Fame” and “Running Late”. Some of my favorite spotlights were landing Brian Angel of MTV’s Making the Band’s “Angle of The Month”, modeling for Torrid and being the face of Club Blu in 2006.
What are some of the roles you really want to play?
Where do I start? The next challenge I want to tackle is a very dramatic role. A role where I can scream, cry and let it all out there. However, I would also love to play a villain. I love physical roles. In my role as Sadie in “Hell’s Pussy Cats” I got to shoot an AK47 and perform my own car stunts which were very exciting. There is nothing more thrilling than performing your own stunts.
Where would you like to see your career go from here?
I have a few projects in the future planned, but would love to write and direct my own short film. I have always dabbled a bit in everything such as dance, singing, acting, set design, staging and writing. I would love to narrow down to one thing and become a master of one instead of a Jack of all trades lol, but I love all forms of entertainment so it’s much harder than you think. I would also really enjoy working behind the camera or stage as a set director. I feel I have a pretty good eye for detail.
What is it that makes you want to be in this profession?
Ever since I was little I wanted to be front center stage. I remember watching movies and musicals such as “Fame”, “Grease” and the “Brady Bunch” memorizing every song and dance and then performing it for family and friends while singing into my Barbie brush. I can also remember being 11 or 12 and getting the kids in my neighborhood together and directing my very first play “Alice in Wonderland”. I had set up chairs from my kitchen, dimmed the lighting, and made set designs with crayons. It was horrible, but my very supportive parents praised me for it anyways.
The great thing that I have found about working with Tara is her eagerness to get the work done and do a good job. She is not afraid to take risk and get a little dirty just to get a good shot. And, with that kind of attitude I am sure she will go far.
