Tanya Roberts Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Oct 15, 1955
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

After experience as a model and off-Broadway actress, curvaceous Tanya Roberts began appearing in film roles that relied almost exclusively on his physical attributes. In 1979's Tourist Trap, for example, the camera took a near-fetishist interest in her long and well-toned legs. Even in her big-budget movie appearances, her acting was not her strong suit, nor was it expected to be, especially in such escapist fare as [[Feature~V4471~Beastmaster~thebeastmaster]] (1982) and [[Feature~V39826~Sheena, Queen of the Jungle~queenofthejungle[serial]]] (1984). In 1980, Roberts was hired to play streetwise Julie Rogers, the last of a long line of replacement actresses in TV's [[Feature~V124404~Charlie's Angels~charliesangels:pilot]] (she was replacing the recently departed [[Performer~P29464~Shelley Hack~shelleyhack]]). After her single Angels season, Roberts went back to movies, primarily horror films and high-class, soft-focus erotica. Tanya Roberts exhibited an engaging flair for self-parody as luscious secretary Velda in the made-for-TV [[Feature~V127606~Mike Hammer: Murder Me, Murder You~mickeyspillanesmikehammer:murdermemurderyou]] (1983); but when time came to develop the film into a series, Roberts had other commitments, and was replaced by [[Performer~P6832~Lindsay Bloom~lindsaybloom]]. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
