Tamara Henry, who plays the 1960s entertainment news anchor for the Mad Men DVD, has been in TV news since 1995. Tamara got her start in TV news in Little Rock, Arkansas while Bill Clinton was President. She was an Entertainment Editor for the Arkansas Times, a Producer for the local KTHV CBS morning show, graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Broadcast Journalism, was appointed the Evening News Anchor for the WB (while she was still wearing her Miss Arkansas USA crown) and has been the Anchorwoman for Santa Monica City TV Channel 16 since 2005 where her local TV show "Metro Motion" was nominated for a Los Angeles Emmy in 2013. "Metro Motion" did a package on Mad Men actor Vincent Kartheiser in the Winter 2010-2011 episode.
Tamara, whose Grace Kelly looks most resemble Elizabeth Montgomery, says her dream to be the "next" Mary Hart is what brought her to Los Angeles. However she actually plays a "pre" Mary Hart, thanks to the hit TV show Mad Men which now comes out on DVD. The premise of the "1960s Celebrity News" bonus disc asks the question - what if there had been an entertainment celebrity news show back in era of the glamorous and ego-driven "Golden Age" of Mad Men? AMC’s Primetime Emmy and Golden Globe-winning hit television series Mad Men chose Tamara Henry to play "Virginia Hartman" the anchorwoman alongside anchorman "Chuck Morgan" played by Douglas Olsson.

Dealing with an ever changing social climate during winter of 1967 and 1968, the smoulderingly stylish anchorwoman "Virginia Hartman" (played by Tamara Henry) reads the news straight from her desk copy, before the time of the teleprompter, against the backdrop of the country coming apart with assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy, and the Harlem riots, as celebrities are redefined and people are forced to evaluate themselves and the world around them in new ways. Her vintage style Montaldo's dress suit was provided by Jet Rag.
