Kari was born (27 July 1988) and brought up in Coventry. She attended Wyken Croft and Earlsdon Primary Schools and later went on to Alderman Callow (now renamed Westwood) School and Community College. She started dance lessons at the age of four in tap, modern dance and gymnastics. At a later stage she also took up ballet, musical theatre and street dance and continued this training up until the age of 20. Before gaining a place at Drama Centre London, she also attended a local drama group in Coventry called St Finbarr’s Youth Arts for a few years which specialised in performing Irish plays. This led to her being part of the community cast in The Belgrade Theatre’s production of The Wedding. Although Tamla enjoyed acting, dancing became her main priority. It wasn’t until she was doing her A-Levels, which included French, Biology and Drama & Theatre Studies, that she realised that she wanted to pursue a career in acting. Two years after leaving school, she moved to London to begin her course at drama school. During the second term of her final year at Drama Centre, Tamla got the role of Lucy in The Inbetweeners Movie. Drama Centre released her from the course to film in Mallorca. After shooting finished, she returned to complete the final term and graduated with a 1st in BA (Hons.) in Acting.
