Who is Tamera Darvette Mowry?

Who is Tamera Darvette Mowry?  The entertainment and acting world knows her Tamera Mowry. Mowry is an American actress. She first gained fame for her teen role as Tamera Campbell on the ABC/WB sitcom Sister, Sister (opposite her identical twin sister Tia Mowry). She starred in the Disney Channel Original Movie Twitches and its sequel, Twitches Too. She has also made a break into dramatic television, and is also known for her role as Dr. Kayla Thorton on the medical drama Strong Medicine. In 2009, Mowry appeared in the ABC Family series Roommates.

Background

Tamera Mowry was born July 6, 1978 in Gelnhausen, West Germany to Darlene Mowry (née Flowers), who managed her children's careers and also worked as a security guard, and Timothy Mowry, who was in the U.S. Army at the time of her birth and later became a custody officer/jailer with the City of Glendale Police Department when the family moved to California.[1][2][3]
Darlene, who is Bahamian American, and Timothy, who is British American, met in high school in Miami, Florida. During a live taping of The Wendy Williams Show in 2010, Mowry announced that for years, she and her twin sister believed they were of Italian descent on their father's side; however, after researching their family tree on Ancestry.com, they quickly discovered that he was instead of British descent.[1][2][4] Her family is "close-knit" and "deeply religious",[2] as the sisters became born again Christians when they were eight.[5]
She also has two younger brothers, actor Tahj Mowry and Tavior Mowry, who is not an actor. Tamera is two minutes older than Tia.

Tamera Mowry married Fox News Correspondent Adam Housley[6] after dating for almost six years. Confirmed by Mowry while being interviewed on The Wendy Williams Show, they married on May 15, 2011 and her dress was designed by Carolina Herrera.
