Tara Lyn Subkoff (born December 10, 1972) is an American actress, conceptual artist, director, and fashion designer. Touted as an "it girl" of the late 1990s, Subkoff made her film debut in the thriller When the Bough Breaks (1994) opposite Martin Sheen, and has had supporting roles in As Good as It Gets (1997), The Last Days of Disco (1998), The Cell (2000), and The Notorious Bettie Page (2005).

In 2001, she co-founded an art collective-turned-fashion line, Imitation of Christ, which featured pieces hand-sewn solely from recycled vintage and thrift store clothing, and has since worked primarily as a conceptual artist. In 2014, she made her debut as a director with the horror film #Horror (2015), which was picked up for distribution by IFC Midnight.

Biography

Subkoff has been formerly romantically linked to Wes Anderson, and was formerly engaged to director Tom Hooper.


In 2009, she was diagnosed with a brain tumor which required surgical intervention. Her symptoms had originally been diagnosed as TMJ by her doctor in 2003. By the time she had been formally diagnosed with the acoustic neuroma, her insurance policy with the Screen Actors Guild had lapsed, leaving her without health insurance for the operation, which led to several friends running a charity to raise money for the surgery. She relocated to Los Angeles, where she underwent a craniotomy to remove the tumor on September 10, 2009. The surgery left Subkoff deaf in her right ear, and with partial nerve damage.
