Tara Lynne Barr (born October 2, 1993) is an American actress, perhaps best known for her role in the 2011 film God Bless America, which earned her a Young Artist Award nomination as Best Leading Young Actress in a Feature Film.
Barr was born in Orange County, California. Her parents are both long time employees of Southern California Edison Company, and enrolled Barr and her older sister Erin in the Boys and Girls Clubs of Huntington Valley’s before- and after-school care program. When the Huntington Valley Boys and Girls Clubs started their Clubhouse Theatre program, Barr's sister auditioned for and performed in several children’s theater productions. Barr was inspired to take up acting after seeing her sister on stage.
After performing herself in ten productions with the Clubhouse Theatre, Barr turned her attention to film and television projects. She was eleven when she starred opposite Sean Whalen in the dark comedy short Road Kill, which won the 2005 Audience Choice Award at the New York City Horror Film Festival and appeared as the host of Encore Channel's Fear Fest: 31 Nights of Horror. Her early television credits also include a dramatic turn on NBC's Crossing Jordan, and a variety of comedic appearances for Disney and Nickelodeon. In 2011, she starred with Joel Murray in the film God Bless America, written and directed by comedian Bobcat Goldthwait.
Barr has donated her time over the past several years to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Huntington Valley as a performer and presenter for a variety of functions, and was a celebrity youth presenter at the 6th annual OMNI Youth Music / Actor Awards.
