At a towering 6 '2 inches tall, Tamara Dobson's screen presence was certainly demanding. Her height in addition to her magnificent fashion sense made her hard to miss. Tamara is best known for her roles in the Cleopatra Jones movie series. Prior to acting, Tamara was a successful runway model and also was featured in issues of Vogue Magazine. Her wardrobe was not to be played with, neither was her makeup game. She wore things other women DARED to wear, even in the outlandish fashion world of the 70's. This woman was soo gorgeous! A true chocolate goddess indeed. Unfortunately Tamara did not make any more films after 1984. She will always be loved and remembered as Cleopatra Jones, not a bad legacy if you ask me! I would love to know what Ms. Dobson is up to these days.
Fun Fact: Tamara was once listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the tallest leading woman ever.
