As a classically trained actress, studying Acting at the Arts Educational School in London for 3 years and the intensive Shakespeare course at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts (RADA) Tara's debut on the London stage won critical acclaim with the British press. Leading roles continued on stage and film.
"Tara who plays the role (Mary Tilford) with frightening skill. Skulks around pouting and is driven to her evil machinations and manipulations by an adolescent's overwrought sense of perceived injustice."
Review by Fiona Mountford
"Brilliantly played by Tara Quinn, easily holding her own among an excellent cast. She plays the bad seed in the small-town school as a manipulative liar who reigns over a coven of bitchy girls."
The Children's Hour
Review by Jonathan Gibbs
"Tara Quinn plays the dominating and lying Mary, as motiveless and malign as Shakespeare's Iago. Collectively pulling the wool over everyones eyes, she cajoles, bullies and blackmails the vulnerable."
The Children's Hour Review By Barbara Lewis
What's On Stage
"The slandering schoolchild was a springboard for Emily Watson at The National. Here, given a devastating, hooded eyed, hang-jawed performance by Tara Quinn."
Review By John Thaxter
Best Supporting Actress
"Tara achieved a carefully structured performance which mixed all the elements of girlish ego, to innocence and terror. There were genuine tears from both Tara and the audience every night."
Arts Richmond Swan Award, UK
Role of Mary Warren, in The Crucible
"In this 5 star production of Dostoevsky's The Devils, Tara Quinn plays the role of the damaged and innocent Matryosha, pursuing Stavrogin like a shadow, as if embodying the ceaseless torment of his conscience."
