BOSTON LEGAL Tara Summers Biography

Tara Summers : Katie Lloyd

Date Of Birth: December 19th   Hometown: London, England

Tara Summers has appeared in major motion pictures that have been both critical and popular hits, including “Alfie,” with Jude Law, “The Jacket,” with Adrien Brody, and “What a Girl Wants,” with Amanda Bynes and Colin Firth. She most recently appeared in “Factory Girl,” with Sienna Miller and Guy Pearce, and “Love Lies Bleeding,” opposite Jenna Dewan, Brian Geraghty and Christian Slater and directed by Keith Samples. She will soon be seen in the mockumentary “Rabbit Fever,” a comedy about the world’s best selling sex-toy. She also had a recurring role on FX’s “Dirt,” playing Ian Hart’s love interest.

A graduate of Brown University (where she received a B.A. in History) and the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts, Summers has also written and starred in her own one-woman theatrical show, “Gypsy of Chelsea.” The play is the story of her own childhood, charting her mother’s turbulent journey from cocaine addiction to recovery. Seen through the eyes of Summers aged eight to 18, we encounter an astonishing range of characters that make up this extraordinary story.

“Gypsy of Chelsea” performed to critical acclaim and a full house at the Royal Court Theatre in London (where Summers is a member of the Young Writers Programme) and most recently at Studio 54 in New York City in aid of Action on Addiction, where audiences included Annette Bening, Jack Nicholson, Harvey Keitel, Lorne Michaels and Anjelica Huston. Given Summers’ experience with addiction, it’s no surprise that the young actress was tapped to play blue-blood Brigid Berlin (aka Brigid Polk) in “Factory Girl.”

Summers resides in Los Angeles and London.
