Tara Lyn Charendoff Strong (born February 12, 1973) is a Canadian-American actress, voice-over artist, comedian, and singer, perhaps best known for voice acting in animated films and television. She has a versatile voice.

Born Tara Lyn Charendoff in Toronto, Ontario, to American parents. Strong's acting career began when she volunteered to be a soloist in an upcoming school production at age four. Soon, she began acting in the Yiddish Theater; though she didn't speak the Yiddish language, she memorized her lines phonetically. During this time, she also performed at the Toronto Jewish Theater, where she acted in A Night of Stars, and was featured in "Lay Down Your Arms" with the Habonim Youth Choir, where she sang the lyrics in both English and Hebrew.

Her voice acting career began in 1987, with the role of Hello Kitty, from Hello Kitty's Furry Tale Theater, a Canadian-American-Japanese joint production. She would later move from Toronto to Los Angeles in 1993. She was a popular voice actor for the companies Nelvana, Cartoon Network, and Nickelodeon. She has done live action work as well - notably as Gwen in the Sabrina the Teenage Witch Made For TV Movies - but says that voice acting takes up most of her time.

She frequent co-stars with fellow actress Cree Summer; the two are childhood friends and grew up in Toronto together. She is married to American actor Craig Strong and they have two sons. Together, they founded VoiceStarz, Inc., an Internet-based company which teaches people how to get into the voice-over business, of which Craig is the C.E.O..
