When Tahnee was just 16 years old, she decided to pursue a career in acting, much to her parents' distaste.

Not only did she abandon her education to follow her dreams, but she also left home. But becoming an actress wasn't easy--she had to work many odd jobs for a couple of years to get by.

In the 1980s, Tahnee moved to Italy where her career finally took off. In 1984, the actress made her film debut in "Amarsi Un Po," an Italian romantic comedy.

After giving her career a kickstart, the actress moved to New York.
