Tamera Darvette Mowry-Housley (born July 6, 1978) is an American actress, singer, and voice 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 Thornton on the medical drama Strong Medicine. Beginning August 2011, the Style Network began airing Tia & Tamera.
Tamera Mowry was born in Gelnhausen, West Germany to Darlene Renee Mowry (née Flowers), who managed her children's careers and also worked as a security guard, and Timothy John 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.
Darlene, who is Bahamian-American, and Timothy, who is English American, met in high school in Miami, Florida. During a live taping of The Wendy Williams Show in 2010, Mowry announced that she and her twin sisters for some reason had erroneously believed they were of Italian descent on their father's side; however, after researching their family tree on Ancestry.com, they learned their father is of English descent. Her family is "close-knit" and "deeply religious", and the sisters became born again Christians when they were eight years old. The sisters have two younger brothers, Tahj, an actor, and Tavior, who plays college football for University of California, Davis.
