Tamara Taylor’s career originally began with quick success in nationally televised commercials. Just months after moving to Los Angeles from her native Toronto, she booked parts in both television and film.
Taylor’s first big break came when she landed a series regular role on “Party of Five,” playing Matthew Fox’s love interest, “Grace.” Later, she starred 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,” with Denise Richards and Eric Balfour. Among dozens of memorable guest appearances, Taylor also was seen on “Lost,” “Numb3rs,” “CSI: Miami” and “NCIS.”
Taylor made her feature film debut as Marlon Wayans’ love interest in the romantic comedy “Senseless,” starring David Spade and Rip Torn. She has also been seen in the critically acclaimed cable biopic “Introducing Dorothy Dandridge,” Tyler Perry’s box office hit “Diary of a Mad Black Woman” and Joss Whedon’s sci-fi adventure “Serenity.”
She currently lives in Los Angeles.
