Tara Lynne Barr's Biography

 As the children of working parents, Tara and her older sister, Erin, began their association with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Huntington Valley in Southern California’s Orange County at very young ages for before- and after-school care.  When the Huntington Valley Boys and Girls Clubs started their “Clubhouse Theatre” program, Erin was quick to sign up, first performing in a production entitled “How to Eat Like a Child” (written by Delia Ephron).  After watching her big sister perform, Tara caught the acting bug.
In 2001, when she was just seven, Tara auditioned for the Clubhouse Theatre production of “Toy Camp”.  She was cast in the role of Ted E. Bear, and her acting career began.  Over the next three years, Tara performed in ten amateur theater productions, and declared at age nine that she “needed an agent” so she could move on to movie and television projects.  The theater remains one of her passions.
Her first professional acting experience came in 2004, when she appeared in the Hallmark Channel original movie, “Love’s Enduring Promise”, directed by Michael Landon, Jr.  Following that, she was featured in several other films and television shows, notably appearing as the “Jump Roping Girl” in the season 2 premiere of “Joan of Arcadia” (2004), and as the tragically murdered child “Sally Yates” in Crossing Jordan’s fourth season episode “Murder in the Rue Morgue” (2005).
Since then, Tara has filmed the award-winning short period piece “We All Fall Down”, starring Carly Schroeder, and the multiple award-winning dark comedy short, "Road Kill", produced by Tom Arnold, and starring Sean Whalen and Steve Kehela, which won the Audience Choice Award at the 2005 New York City Horror Film Festival.  She has also appeared in National commercials for L.L. Bean Outerwear and Uncle Ben's Ready Rice, starred in episodes of “Drake and Josh” and "Zoey 101" for Nickelodeon, and appeared as the host of Encore Channel's "Fear Fest: 31 Nights of Horror".  And, her theater credits continue to mount, and now include starring roles in "Annie" and Wonderland!, an original work for Broadway on Tour, with which she regularly performs.
