Who is Tara on Virgin River 3? Everything we know about Stacey Farber
Stacey Farber is a Canadian actress who was born on August 25, 1987. She is best known for her role as Ellie Nash in Degrassi: The Next Generation, which she played from seasons 2 to 8. She co-starred in the CBC series 18 to Life with fellow Canadian Michael Seater of Life with Derek from 2010 to 2011. Farber portrayed Sydney Katz on the Canadian medical drama Saving Hope from 2014 to 2017.
Early childhood development and education
Farber was born into a Jewish family in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
She graduated from Branksome Hall, an all-girls private school, in 2005. Farber attended York University in Toronto for her first year of university in 2007, before transferring to The New School’s Eugene Lang College in New York City, where she graduated in 2009.
Farber portrays Ellie Nash, a troubled young girl who struggles with depression and cutting while dealing with an alcoholic mother on Degrassi: The Next Generation. Stacey first appeared as a recurring character in the second season of the show, but she was promoted to a regular role in the third season and remained on the show until the end of season seven. Stacey was nominated for Canada’s top acting award, the Gemini Award, for her work on Degrassi, in the category of ‘Best Performance in a Youth Program or Series.’
In addition to her role as Ellie on Degrassi, Farber starred in the Canadian short film Bagatelle in 2001. She guest starred as Young Kathryn in the 2002 crime film Narc, guest starred as Lacy Sanders on an episode of the television drama Doc, and guest hosted The N’s Best Friend’s Date’s 2004–05 season finale. In the animated science fiction series Dark Oracle, she also plays Mary. She also had a mini-series titled Stacey’s NYC 101 on The N’s The Click in 2006, in which she played herself. Farber has appeared in a number of stage productions, including Love, Loss, and What I Wore, in addition to her screen work.
Farber was also one of the final three actresses to audition for Juno’s title role.
Daniel Clark, who played her onscreen love interest on Degrassi for two seasons, also auditioned for the role of Bleeker, Juno’s love interest.
From 2010 to 2011, Farber co-starred with Michael Seater in the film 18 to Life. Seater married literal girl-next-door Farber at the age of 18 in the CBC/CWseries, against both sets of parents’ wishes. The pilot was shot in Montreal in 2008, and the remaining eleven episodes were shot in the summer of 2010. The series had a “almost Juno-like quality,” according to Raju Mudhar of the Toronto Star. He said the leads have “some chemistry and both are compelling, young actors to watch,” despite his dislike for the show.  In real life, the two were described as “getting along famously,” despite only meeting for the television movie Degrassi Goes Hollywood.  Angela Asher, who had previously appeared with Farber in Made… The Movie, played Farber’s mother in the series. The series received a Gemini Award nomination for best ensemble performance.
In October 2020, Farber was cast in the recurring role of Leslie Larr on the CW television series Superman & Lois, which is described as a “hardened, world-worn dream killer.”
She was cast in the recurring role of Tara Anderson in the Netflix drama series Virgin River’s third season in December 2020.
