A poised and disciplined actress, Tamara Taylor started landing jobs in film and television just months after moving from her hometown of Toronto to Los Angeles.
Taylor’s first big television break came when she landed a series regular role on Party of Five, playing Matthew Fox’s love interest, “Grace.” Later, she was cast as “Dr. Ana Syphax” in Steven Bochco’s drama City of Angels with Blair Underwood; as “Sarah” opposite Paula Marshall on Hidden Hills and as “Nina” in Sex, Love & Secrets opposite Denise Richards and Eric Balfour. Among dozens of guest appearances, Taylor most recently appeared on the series Lost, Numb3rs, CSI: Miami and NCIS.
Taylor made her feature film debut as Marlon Wayans’ love interest in the romantic comedy Senseless. Within a year she played Halle Berry’s best friend in the critically acclaimed biopic Introducing Dorothy Dandridge. Taylor also starred in Tyler Perry’s box office hit Diary of a Mad Black Woman and appeared in Joss Whedon’s sci-fi adventure Serenity.
Taylor enjoys the beach, hiking, movies and books and lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Miles, and two chihuahuas, Bruno and Miss Pixie.
