Tara Strong was born in Toronto, Canada. She knew from a very early
age that she wanted to be a performer. She sang and danced in local
performances and began her professional career at the age of thirteen.
She was performing in TV and on stage when she received the call to
audition for the title role of "HELLO KITTY" in the new animated series.
It was her first voice over audition, and she booked the part, opening
the doors to more than twenty animated series regulars, including "BEETLEJUICE",
"CARE BEARS", "BABAR", and many more.
At the age of twenty, she moved to California in pursuit of even bigger
dreams…which she accomplished when; within a three month time span;
booked the voice of "BATGIRL" from Warner Bros Animated series, "BATMAN",
"BUBBLES", from "THE POWER PUFF GIRLS", and "MELODY" in the sequel to
Disney's "THE LITTLE MERMAID".
Since her arrival to Hollywood, Tara has experienced many wonderful
successes, including her marriage to Craig Strong and the birth of their
two sons. She's been a "RUGRAT", a "TEEN TITAN", a hero named "BEN 10",
a kid named "TIMMY" with magical "FAIRLY ODD PARENTS", and now she lends
her vocal talents to the only female series lead character in Cartoon
Network's new "TRANSFORMERS" series, little "SARI". Tara feels truly
honored to be a part of such a time honored classic franchise. The cast
is magnificent and so is the writing. Tara knows how lucky she is to
have been a part of something so special and hopes in the future to
keep working on shows like "TRANSFORMERS" that have such great heart,
and that fans truly enjoy.
