Tamara Taylor Career
Tamara Taylor portrayed Della in the CBS medical drama 3 lbs. and Nina in the UPN series Sex, Love & Secrets; both were brief lived.
On NCIS, Numb3rs, Lost, CSI: Miami, Without a Trace, Party of Five, and Dawson’s Creek, Taylor has made cameo appearances. She played Marlon Wayans’ love interest in her first major motion picture, Senseless. She played Halle Berry’s best friend in Introducing Dorothy Dandridge and Debrah Simmons in the 2005 romantic comedy Diary of a Mad Black Woman. She also had a small part in the Joss Whedon TV series Firefly movie Serenity.
Taylor’s role in Serenity gave her the opportunity to try out for a program with David Boreanaz, an actor who had previously collaborated with Joss Whedon on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. She also had an appearance on the television show Lost as Walt’s mother and Michael’s old lover.
She made her Bones debut as Dr. Camille Saroyan in the opening episode of the second season, “The Titan on the Tracks.” She was listed as a guest star in the first six episodes of the season because Hart Hanson, the show’s creator and writer, intended to kill her off in episode 12 when Howard Epps, a recurring serial killer, poisoned her, in order to heighten the tension and drama between the two main characters.
However, the audience’s response to her character was so enthusiastic that the writers decided to give her a role as a recurring regular instead. She was credited as a main character for the rest of the series starting with the episode that came after, “The Girl with the Curl.”
In a subsequent appearance, Tamara Taylor played the Chronicum Sibyl, the season’s secondary adversary, on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
