Tara Grammy is an Iranian-Canadian actress and playwright. She was born in Tehran, but grew up in Toronto, with a time spent in the United-States and Germany. She completed her Bachelor of Arts with a specialist in Drama at the University of Toronto, and has been performing since graduating in 2010. Her unique multi-national perspective inspired her to create her award-winning one-woman show Mahmoud, which she co-wrote, produced and starred in. The show put her on the map in Toronto (Best of Toronto Fringe and Patron’s Pick Winner), New York (Fringe NYC Encore Series and Excellence in Solo Performance Award) and Los Angeles (Sold-out performances at Santa Monica Playhouse, at Whitefire Theatre) in 2012-2013. The show was so popular that Playwright’s Canada Press approached her and got it published in 2015. Mahmoud was nominated for a Governor General’s Award, the most prestigious Canadian award in the literary world. Tara is currently shooting indie feature film SIMPLE WEDDING as the lead, opposite Rita Wilson and Shohreh Aghdashloo. Recently, Tara shot the pilot for sketch show 2042, for TBS, as a series regular.
