Tami Stronach Wiki – Tami Stronach Biography
Tami Stronach is an actor, dancer, and professor. In addition to her artistic projects, she also followed in her father’s footsteps, becoming a professor in New York City. While she was a child actor portraying Piglet in a San Francisco stage adaptation of Winnie-the-Pooh, she was approached by the casting director for The NeverEnding Story and asked to audition for the role of the Childlike Empress. After three auditions, she beat Heather O’Rourke to star in the 1984 film; it has been her only major motion picture. Ruth Stronach declined a sequel contract for her daughter, worried about lacking the wherewithal to “help her daughter navigate the turbulent waters of childhood stardom in the film industry.” After NeverEnding Story became a sensational success, the Stronachs were besieged with unwanted attention: their home and telephone were stalked, adults proposed to the eleven-year-old with engagement rings, and she received “offers from Hollywood to play roles featuring scenes completely inappropriate for someone her age.”
She went back to acting in 2002 with a physical theatre company, and by 2006 had performed in Chambre at La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club and was continuing to study acting with Laura Esterman. By the 2010s, she had co-founded a theatre company called Shoehorn Theater in 2012, they started creating a new play, Light: A Dark Comedy (“a group generative effort where everyone is involved in every step of the creation.”)In July 2020, The Hollywood Reporter reported that she had been cast to star in Man & Witch alongside Sean Astin, Rhea Perlman, Christopher Lloyd, and Michael Emerson.
Switching her focus from acting to professional dancing after The NeverEnding Story, she devoted herself to that study for ten years (through her twenties) in New York City. In 1996, she started dancing with Neta Pulvermacher and Dancers, though she has also exhibited her own productions at Dixon Place, Washington Square Park, and the Galápagos Islands.
