Taryn Manning

Taryn Manning, (born November 6, 1978 in Falls Church, Virginia), is an American actress and singer/songwriter of the band Boomkat. She started dancing at age twelve and won many competitions. She also has won the Arizona state championship in karate.

Although she had small film and television roles, she tried out for WB's Popstars in 2001. Since then, she has starred in more prominent and well-known roles.

Manning and her brother Killian formed Boomkat and their debut album Boomkatalog.One was released on March 18th 2003. She sang a rendition of "I'll Take You There" in a Gap commercial, and a Boomkat song was included on the 8 Mile soundtrack.

On September 22, 2005 Manning discussed her "out of body" experience as one of 140 passengers on JetBlue Airways Flight 292. Speaking as a guest on Craig Ferguson's late night talk show, she explained:

"When we saw our plane on TV as 'breaking news'... it was the most surreal, out of body experience I ever had... I just composed a little something so that if anything happened [family members] would know that our last goodbye wasn't on the phone... A lot of the women of course were crying... There was a gentleman across the way who was writing in his journal and crying, and seeing that isn't easy."

Upon landing safely, she described the atmosphere of jubilant cheering and applause inside the airplane. ""It sounded like Dodger Stadium in there."
