Tanya Roberts was an American actress and producer who gained a cult following due to her seductress image in erotica film genre throughout the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. After her appearance as a Bond girl in 1985’s film A View to Kill, she became Hollywood’s favourite femme fatale. Tanya started off as a model and an off-Broadway artist before embarking on a career as an actor. Earlier in her career, Tanya’s curvaceous body and sultry looks limited her to objectification in many of her films, but owing to substantial roles in films like The Beastmaster and Sheena: Queen of the Jungle, she established herself as a beautiful woman capable of carrying an entire movie on her shoulders, though her acting skills were constantly criticized. Hollywood didn’t stop admiring her looks more than her talent and for the better part of the 90s Tanya got featured mostly in erotic thriller films. When films failed to provide her the respect she demanded and deserved for her acting abilities, she turned to television. She featured in Charlie’s Angels and That 70s Show—two popular TV shows that somehow redeemed her a little bit as a performer. But even then, Hollywood didn’t find her acting abilities suitable for high octane dramas and she kept appearing in horror and adult movies. She became a regular on That 70s Show but had to leave it midway, due to her husband’s terminal illness.
