Well, on a bad, bad day here’s some really nice news.
The wonderful Tamara Tunie, star of “Law & Order” and “As the World Turns,” has been named a trustee by Carnegie Mellon University.
There isn’t a nicer, more talented, achieving person in the world, and she deserves all kudos. I am really thrilled for her.
Tamara is a familiar face to TV audiences. For years, she played the medical examiner, Dr. Melinda Warner, on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” and attorney Jessica Griffin, on the daytime drama “As the World Turns.” For many seasons, she overlapped on the two shows, and on two different networks.
She also appeared on “NYPD Blue” and the first season of Fox’s “24.” She has also guest-starred in many other television series, including “Sex and the City,” “The Good Wife” and “Better Call Saul,” among others. On the movie screen, Tunie most notably played the key supporting role of Margaret Thomason in “Flight.”
Tamara graduated from Carnegie Mellon in 1981. In addition to all those acting credits, she is also a tireless producer and activist for the theater in New York. Tamara really is a force of nature. She can do anything. For example, she most recently sang Charlie Chaplin’s “Smile” during CMU’s Virtual Conferral of Degrees ceremony on May 19. She just hosted the show below:
Nice guys finish first! Many congrats to Tamara!
