(2003). Took over the role of "Timmy Turner" in The Fairly OddParents (2001) shorts on Oh Yeah! Cartoons (1998) upon the death of Mary Kay Bergman. Strong was still the voice of Timmy when The Fairly OddParents (2001) became a TV series. Two sons with Craig Strong: Sammy Strong and Aden Strong. Arrived in Los Angeles in the midst of an earthquake. Has two dogs, Abby and Baci. Was credited as Tara Charendoff prior to her marriage and changed her professional name at her husband's request. Tara is of the Jewish faith, and a staunch vegetarian, having grown up following the kosher dietary laws. Tara deeply loved working on Drawn Together (2004), considering it fun for the most part because it was such a departure from the family-friendly productions she was used to working on at the time. While generally tolerant of the show's Jewish humor, she did have a few problems when it came to a few jokes about writer Anne Frank, a Jewish victim of the Holocaust. Out of all of the characters she has portrayed, her roles as "Melody" in The Little Mermaid 2: Return to the Sea (2000) and "Toot Braunstein" in Drawn Together (2004) are her all-time favorites. Has been friends with fellow actress Cree Summer since childhood. She has also befriended Grey DeLisle, Butch Hartman, Jess Harnell, Cathy Cavadini, Elizabeth Daily, Melissa Joan Hart, Kevin Michael Richardson, Crispin Freeman, Maurice LaMarche, James Arnold Taylor, David Kaye, Jodi Benson, Scott Menville, Tom Kenny and Richard Steven Horvitz, all of whom she has worked with. Has stated in interviews that she would like to star in more live action productions, but is constantly preoccupied with voiceover work and thus simply cannot find the time. Expecting her second child with husband Craig Strong. [2004] Lived with Neve Campbell before both actresses made it big. Auditioned for the role of Julia on Party of Five (1994). Her former roommate, Neve Campbell got the part. Strong later guest starred as Lorna in the second episode of the first season. In addition to Twilight, she also auditioned for the roles for Pinkie Pie and Applejack in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Personal Quotes (18) [Interview in "Working Mother" Magazine, July/August 2004]: My son is now old enough to respond to my work. To me, that's what it's all about. Sometimes a role might be difficult on my throat. Some shows, like PPG, tape in a group session, which is always more fun because you can play off each other. Many people think voice over artists just read, there's much more to it. Without acting beats, scene study and improving skills, you won't make it. In general, I find that for videos the acting is more realistic. If I am not right for something there are many talented actors out there that will get it. I'm not sure specifically but there's definitely parts of me in Rikku. I usually have 10 different animation projects going at a time. I think there are more female characters in video games now but I also think that's because video games in general are more diverse now. I didn't record any additional dialogue for this CD, they are excerpts pulled from existing episodes. Don't be afraid to look silly. I think it's definitely beneficial for these characters to have good acting voices behind them and it affects the characters in a way that people can feel like they're part of the game and that they know these characters. I had to make squirrel noises as Bubbles and without realizing it, I was making the face and putting my fingers up to my face to look like a squirrel and everyone made fun of me for the rest of the day. Whenever you do an animated project or a voice-over project it's inevitable that part of your personality comes into play. We really have a lot of fun at these sessions, we all get along and kid around with each other throughout the job. We all sit in front of our mics and our scripts lay on music stands. Then the silliness begins! There's a lot more to see when you're playing and because of the advances in technology it makes room for all kinds of new characters. Start as early as you can. Make tapes of your characters.
