Tamara grew up in her hometown, but after her parents divorced, she went on to live with her mother and stepfather Eddie Taylor. She has a stepsister and stepbrother, but grew up as an only child, since she was introduced to these two later in life. When it comes to her education, Tamara dropped out of high school as she wanted to give herself a chance to succeed as a model.

Career Beginnings

Her modeling efforts soon led to an acting career, her debut coming in the late ‘80s in the television film that chronicles the life of Lyndon Johnson, entitled “LBJ: The Early Years”. The next year she made a minor, uncredited appearance in the TV series “A Different World”, but felt the first rays of success in 1996, when she was chosen for the part of Grace Wilcox in the TV drama series “Party of Five”. She remained in the series only for a season, but it was just enough to secure her a debut role in the film “Senseless” in 1998, portraying Janice in the romantic comedy. The upcoming years Tamara spent building a name for herself by appearing in the TV series “Dawson’s Creek”, and then in the biopic about Dorothy Dandridge, entitled “Introducing Dorothy Dandridge”, starring Halle Berry, Brent Spiner and Klaus Maria Brandauer.

Rise to Prominence

Gradually, Tamara’s skills improved, and she became more popular; with the start of the new millennium she bean gaining more notable roles, such as Dr. Ana Syphax in the TV drama series “City of Angels”, and from 2002 to 2003 she portrayed Sarah Timmerman in the short-lived TV comedy series “Hidden Hills”. Her next role was as Debrah in Tyler Perry’s romantic comedy-drama series “Diary of a Mad Black Woman“ (2005), and the same year she was one of the lead cast in the romantic drama series “Sex, Love & Secrets”.

However, it was in 2006 that Tamara reached prominence when she was chosen for the part of Dr. Camille Saroyan in the TV series “Bones”. Planned as a guest star, her character became greatly appreciated by the public, resulting in her and the characters becoming permanent, and Tamara appearing in 223 episodes of the Primetime Emmy Award-winning series, which made her a star actress. She wasn’t quite active in the search for other acting engagements during her stint on “Bones”, as she only featured in a couple of projects, including the television film “Reluctant Nanny” in 2015.

Continual Success

Since the cancelation of “Bones”, Tamara has continued her career quite successfully; she co-starred in the mystery thriller film “August Falls” in 2017, next to Fairuza Balk, Charles Baker and Alanna Ubach, and has also had a notable role in the Netflix’ original series “Altered Carbon” in 2018.
