Biography

One-half of a child acting duo beloved by scores of teen fans during the 1990s, Tamera Mowry went on to enjoy continued success as an adult on a variety of projects. As a teenager, she and her two-minutes younger sister, Tia, became instant celebrities as the stars of the hit comedy show, "Sister, Sister" (ABC, 1994-95; The WB, 1995-99). After the popular sitcom ended its six-season run, Mowry continued to work with her sister in cable movies like "Seventeen Again" (Showtime, 2000), but also found solo success on such projects as the medical drama "Strong Medicine" (Lifetime, 2000-06). Mowry went on to perform both with and without her sibling to varying degrees of success in teen-themed movies like the supernatural comedy "Twitches" (Disney Channel, 2005) and the slightly older-skewing sitcom "Roommates" (ABC Family, 2009). One of the more successful efforts of her and her twin's post "Sister, Sister" career came with a venture into reality television as the focus of "Tia & Tamera" (Style Network, 2011-13), which proved to be a substantial hit for the cable network. Proving that she and her sister were more than a mere novelty act, Mowry embraced a vibrant career, both with and without her biological mirror image.
