Tamara Woods is a Christian actress / model.
With passion and conviction, young actress Tamara Woods has had the opportunity to be on set with A-list actors such as Sigourney Weaver, Clifton Davis, Jennifer Aniston, Gerard Butler, Bill Duke, Aunjanue Ellis, Tyrese Gibson, James Franco, to name a few. She also had a cameo appearance in Sure Looks Good, now on DVD; short films, For Better or For Worse, playing the lead role as Renee, and Streets Keep Calling Me, that was part of the Philadelphia Film Festival in 2007. She also appeared in commercials for both Nike and Forman Mills, and has been working in Theatre ever since with a goal to go from the Avenue of the Arts, Broad Street in her hometown of Philadelphia to Broadway, New York as well as major films. Though a native of Philadelphia, Tamara Woods, had a desire for acting and modeling at the age of nine. She started performing at the age of five by dancing at family functions during the Hip-Hop era by popping and break dancing. Tamara is proud to have sacrificed her daily life to serve her country. Her last assignment was Operation Enduring Iraqi Freedom. During her deployment, her constant drive to remain connected to the arts lead Tamara to be involved in mime performance, liturgical dance, choir, and a stage play which ignited her passion for performing all over again.
Since then, Tamara has been embarking upon an elevated career in acting and has trained with Award Winning Actress, Veronica Redd; with Broadway Dreams; at the Walnut Street Theatre under Sharon Geller; and at Temple University under Donna Snow.
Her consistency as a performer and passion for acting in both film and on stage allow her to continually hone her skills in preparation for any role. Directors in search of an artist committed to their craft identify Tamara Woods as a treasured cast member and thespian. Some of her influences include Robert DiNero, Samuel L. Jackson, Sandra Bullock, and Whoopi Goldberg.
Tamara believes that God has blessed her with this gift to share with the world. She quotes “I hope to reach out to help others hoping to enlighten or enrich someone’s life.
