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 [[ManOfAThousandVoices versatile voice]].

Born Tara Lyn Charendoff in Toronto, Ontario, her 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 ''WesternAnimation/HelloKittysFurryTaleTheater'', 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 Creator/{{Nelvana}}, Creator/CartoonNetwork, and Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}. She has done live action work as well - notably as Gwen in the ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'' {{Made For TV Movie}}s - but says that voice acting takes up most of her time.

She frequent co-stars with fellow actress Creator/CreeSummer; the two are childhood friends and grew up in Toronto together. She is married to American actor Creator/CraigStrong 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..

!!Tropes found in her voice acting:
* ActorAllusion:
** She also voices a pony-parody of possibly [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Twilight Sparkle]] in ''[[WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo Pretty Pretty Pegasus]]'', in which her character Raven is a closet fan of.
*** Another pony reference in a DC project; in VideoGame/Injustice2, Tara voices Harley Quinn and can have this exchange with Mr. Freeze at the start of a match.
--->'''Harley Quinn:''' Can you make me a pony?
--->'''Mr. Freeze:''' It shall make the [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic twilight sparkle]].
--->'''Harley Quinn:''' I was hoping you'd say that!
** In an episode of ''My Little Pony'', Twilight says "do I look like I speak squirrel?" - a nod to Bubbles of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'', who had the power to communicate with animals.
* CastingGag: She plays Comicbook/{{Batgirl|2011}}/Barbara Gordon in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', ''WebAnimation/GothamGirls'', ''WesternAnimation/SuperBestFriendsForever'', and ''WesternAnimation/BewareTheBatman''.
* ContractualPurity: She once turned down a role in a horror film that would have required a topless scene - as she didn't want her young fans (or perverts) looking up pictures of it online. But then again she did list her role in the ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'' cartoon as one of her favourites - precisely because it was different from the family friendly stuff she usually did.
* CrossDressingVoices: She voices quite a few boys, such as [[WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents Timmy Turner]], [[WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends Terrence]], [[WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}} Ben Tennyson]], and [[WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown Omi]].
* FakeAmerican: Sort of; she was born in UsefulNotes/{{Toronto}}, but her parents are American.
* FakeBrit: As Gwen in ''Film/SabrinaGoesToRome'' and ''Film/SabrinaDownUnder'' and as a hallucination in ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack''.
* FakeIrish: In ''Jakkers! The Adventures of Piggley Winks''.
* IAmNotSpock: Played with on her twitter, she often posts pictures or fanart of her characters saying things like "Here's me naked!" <screenshot of Timmy Turner>, "Here I am in my sexy swimsuit!" <fanart of Raven>, "[[https://twitter.com/tarastrong/status/248180751940603905 Dancing with yourself is important]]" <fanart of Twilight Sparkle and a pony version of herself>, "Here's me about to give you tongue!" <screenshot of Ember [=McLain=]>.
* MagnumOpusDissonance: Her favourite role is actually Melody in ''Disney/TheLittleMermaidIIReturnToTheSea'', for reasons detailed below.
* NonSingingVoice: Only in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' where Twilight Sparkle's singing is done by Creator/RebeccaShoichet. This is mainly due to Tara being the only main cast member who records her lines in Los Angeles while the rest of the main cast records in Canada. The cast usually needs to be together to record songs for the show and Tara didn't want to travel back-and-forth and be away from her kids. Tara is actually quite a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W36nxRVZdsc good singer]] and has sung in other roles. This led to in inversion on ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' where she's the singing voice for Meg because Mila Kunis can't sing.
* OneOfUs: Oh so ''very'' much. Seems to have hit some kind of critical mass with the Brony thing, but it's always been there; one need only check out her interviews. She also follows {{LetsPlay/Chuggaaconroy}} on Twitter. Yes--THE Chuggaaconroy.
** She came to a recent Comic Con dressed as [[WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack Ashi]] basically showing that she loves the character as much as her fans do, and she hated what happened to her at the end as well!
PlayingAgainstType:
** As [[VideoGame/SpiderManShatteredDimensions Doctor Octopus 2099]] and [[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity Harley Quinn]].
** [[WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether Princess Clara, Toot Braunstein]], [[VideoGame/LollipopChainsaw Juliet Starling]], and various female characters on ''{{Brickleberry}}'' are also oddities on her resume, as she's mostly known for being on kids' cartoons (some of which do have ParentalBonus jokes and moments of GettingCrapPastTheRadar, but are still considered children's entertainment).
** She also voices [[DepravedDwarf Ferra]], one half of Ferra/Torr, in ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'', which is part of a series that's become famous (or infamous, depending on how you look at it) for its over-the-top, gory finishers. [[AvertedTrope More in line with what you'd expect,]] however, is her portrayal of the refugee Li Mei in the same game.
** Lena from ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooOnZombieIsland'' could be considered the most villainous character that she has ever played, though out of all the three main villains she was the least evil.
* PromotedFangirl: She was a huge ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' fan and got to play Ariel's daughter in the sequel. She often tells the story of when she first met Jodi Benson in the studio, Tara ''burst into TearsOfJoy''.
* RelationshipVoiceActor:
** She often appears alongside Music/GreyDeLisle and Creator/CreeSummer. The fact that they're good friends in real life probably helps.
** She and [[{{Creator/MaxCasella}} Max Casella]] even worked on two projects together: ''Disney/TheLittleMermaidII'' and ''Franchise/JakAndDaxter'' (third game onwards).
** She also appeared alongside Creator/JamesArnoldTaylor in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', the Franchise/RatchetAndClank games, ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'', and plenty more.
** She's also worked alongside her fellow ''Teen Titans'' cast members in other projects, with Creator/ScottMenville and Creator/KharyPayton being the ones she tends to work with the most.
** She and Creator/TabithaStGermain, aside from playing two of the [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Mane Six]], have also worked on the latter two WesternAnimation/SuperMarioBros cartoons and ''WesternAnimation/{{Beetlejuice}}''.
* RetroactiveRecognition: Any of her UsefulNotes/{{Toronto}} work.
* StarMakingRole:
** While she's known for numerous roles, [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls Bubbles]] is arguably the role that put her on the map as far as voice actors go.
** Given the success of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', Twilight Sparkle is also a turning point in her career.

* TalkingToHerself: Tara often voices multiple characters in her works:
** On ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'', she voices two main characters, Toot and Clara, so their interactions are frequent.
** During ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' episode "The Malicious Mr. Mind", she voices ''{{Comicbook/Shazam}}'' characters Billy and Mary, as well as toddler Batman, while they try to re-age the Caped Crusader.
** An amusing example is [[ThemeTwinNaming Hip and Hop]] in the ''WesternAnimation/SuperMarioBros'' cartoons where as two separate characters, Tara would [[FinishingEachOthersSentences finish her own sentences]].
** She voices main character Timmy on ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'', as well as numerous background characters who tend to interact with him. When they added baby Poof to the fairies, she was given that job as well.
** She reprises her roles from ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamSeries'' and ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' in ''VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'' as Harley Quinn and Raven, respectively.
* VocalEvolution: Her earliest roles sound very different from her later ones. But she can still pull off some of her 90's-era voices if prompted.
** Hell, she can do [[WesternAnimation/HelloKittysFurryTaleTheater the first role]] she did ''from the age of 13'' pretty faithfully.
** This will presumably be seen within a single role in ''Series/ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'', as over the course of the story Sunny Baudelaire gradually goes from an infant speaking gibberish to a young girl able to speak normally.
* TheOtherDarrin: Mary Kay Bergman voiced Timmy Turner in the original ''Fairly Odd Parents'' shorts, and Tara took over after she passed away - continuing to voice Timmy in the proper cartoon.
* * TrollingCreator: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wblE8YYLyQ0 A self-proclaimed, unabashed troll]], she is well known for poking fun at the fans and subverting expectations. For instance, she once promised to have Twilight Sparkle "talk dirty", [[https://vine.co/v/h3BrDbIWuaj and this was the result]]...
* TypeCasting: She has a tendency to play the roles of overly cutesy, hyperactive characters. Largely averted as her career has gone on, as she has [[ManOfAThousandVoices quite a bit of range,]] having played several different age ranges (babies, children [boys and girls, but mostly boys], teenage girls and adult women) as well as playing darker types in addition to cutesy types, such as [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans Raven]].
* YouLookFamiliar: Well, you ''sound'' familiar, but Tara first provided the voice of Molly Dolly in ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'''s third season - and then starred as Gwen in the spin-off movies.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Creator/LaurenFaust originally wanted Strong to play Pinkie Pie in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' before that role was given to Creator/AndreaLibman. She also did an audition for Applejack.
** She was going to be the second voice of Marie for the sequel for Disney's ''Disney/TheAristocats'' which was planned to be released in 2007 but got cancelled in 2006 once Disney acquired Pixar.
** She very nearly got the role of Julia Salinger in ''Series/PartyOfFive''. The role went to Neve Campbell, who Tara was roommates with at the time. Tara did make a small appearance on the second episode as Lorna.
** She wasn't originally going to be in ''WesternAnimation/TheLittleMermaidIIReturnToTheSea''. She was brought into the studio to record a template, which producers would then give to a CelebrityVoiceActor. [[PermanentPlaceholder However her performance impressed them enough to cast her as Melody properly]].
** She had planned to give Lena in ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooOnZombieIsland'' a Cajun accent and spent some time working on it. However Jim Cummings, an expert at the Cajun dialect, said it didn't sound accurate, so she went with a more general southern accent.
** Strong has expressed desire for a role on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' but so far nothing has come out of it yet.
* WomanOfAThousandVoices: Tara can go from [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls Bubbles]], to [[WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents Timmy Turner and Poof]], to [[WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether Toot and Clara]], to [[WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}} Dil]] [[WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp Pickles]], to [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries Batgirl]], to [[WesternAnimation/LavenderCastle Lyca]], to [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Rikku]], to [[WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated Sari Sumdac]], to [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Twilight Sparkle]] and even to [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans Raven]], [[VideoGame/SpiderManShatteredDimensions Doctor Octopus 2099]], and ''[[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity Harley Quinn]]'' Ė with Bubbles, Toot, and (to a lesser extent) Timmy Turner the only three that sound similar to anyone with a trained ear.
** Batgirl, [[WesternAnimation/{{Fillmore}} Ingrid Third]], [[WesternAnimation/LavenderCastle Lyca]] and [[WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack Ashi]] are the only roles she's done using ''her natural speaking voice''.[[note]]However, in the Lavender Castle episode ''Bird of Prey'', she uses her [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls Bubbles]] voice for the scene when the Paradox and its crew are shrunk down by the black hole.[[/note]]
** She can also go deep in her voice, as Raven from ''VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'' demonstrates.
*** Apparently, when asked about this at a con in 2013, she said, she had no idea about it, until watching clips of Raven in the game. So it was probably pitched down in post.
** To elaborate further, in 2012, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBzRmWeC6Ds Emerald City Comic Con featured a sketch where famous voice actors voiced some of their famous roles in place of the characters from the movie]] ''[[Film/ANewHope Star Wars]]'' (e.g. Yakko and Wakko as two Death Star admirals, Calculon as Tarkin, etc.), switching every scene. Tara voiced everyone from Raven to Toot to Twilight Sparkle to Princess Clara. (This is a regular thing at SanDiegoComicCon as well, though it's more often done with public domain fairy tales than StarWars.) This later lead to the WebOriginal/TwistedToonz series of panels.
