Early life and careerEdit

Tara Lyn Charendoff was born February 12, 1973, in Toronto, Ontario. At age four, she volunteered to be a soloist in a school production. She soon began acting at the Yiddish Theater, and memorized her lines phonetically even though she did not know Yiddish. During her childhood, she also acted in A Night of Stars at the Toronto Jewish Theater, and sung "Lay Down Your Arms" in the Habonim Youth Choir in English and Hebrew. She later repeated the latter feat in 2005 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

At age thirteen, she landed her first professional role, as Gracie in a production of The Music Man at the Limelight Theater. Afterwards, she played a guest role in Mr. T's T & T, and voiced Hello Kitty on Hello Kitty's Furry Tale Theater. In 1994, she moved to Los Angeles after the Northridge Earthquake.

She was the announcer for Nickelodeon's 2000 Kids' Choice Awards, won an Interactive Achievement Award in 2004 for her voice as Rikku in Final Fantasy X and X-2, and was featured on the front cover of the July/August 2004 issue of Working Mother Magazine.

Personal lifeEdit

Before her marriage, she was credited under Tara Charendoff. She met a real-estate agent (and former actor) named Craig Strong in 1999, and they got married on May 14, 2000. They have two sons, Sammy and Aden, born 2002 and 2004 respectively. Strong and her family now live in Toluca Lake, California.
