A native of Toronto, Canada, Dara Tomanovich’s career as a model and actress started thanks to a fateful trip to visit a friend working in Paris. While abroad, Ms. Tomanovich happened to meet with the internationally renowned German fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld who, after recognizing her talents, cast her as the new lead model for the fashion house, Chloe, at the age of 18. As the face of Chloe, Dara Tomanovich’s career began to take off. She was able to book a campaign with the cosmetic line L’Oreal, in which she had the opportunity to work with photographer Patrick Demarchelier. Ms. Tomanovich lived in Paris working as a model for five years, during which time the highlights of her career included gracing the cover of the French edition of Marie Claire, and appearing in advertisements for the British edition of Vogue. After moving to New York from Paris, Dara Tomanovich began studying acting at The William Esper Studio in Manhattan. At the Esper Studio, Ms. Tomanovich learned to act using the Meisner technique, a technique of method acting that focuses on personal interaction. At this time, she appeared with Academy Award winner George Clooney in a television campaign for the Italian car manufacture, Fiat. Once her studies were complete, Ms. Tomanovich moved to Los Angeles and received a role in the Pauly Shore comedy, Bio-Dome. Ms. Tomanovich would go on to appear in a variety of television shows, including Highlander, The Practice, Family Affair, Just Shoot Me, and Secret Agent Man. Dara Tomanovich currently resides in New York City.
