This new Netflix gem stars Tamara Taylor as a monster hunter… what more could you want?

Tamara Taylor has become the new obsession for October Faction fans!

Does your Netflix watch list appear endless?

Well, you’re not the only one. There’s simply so much content on there, and just as we go to find an old gem we’ve been meaning to watch for ages, they drop another show that demands our attention.

The latest to attract buzz is Damian Kindler’s October Faction, which arrived on Thursday, January 23rd.

We are thrown into the story of accomplished monster hunters who return from home to New York with their teenage children. However, their professions just won’t allow them to take a break!

It’s a really imaginative series and the central stars all do an amazing job of involving audiences in the family dynamic. However, we’re here to shine a spotlight on Tamara Taylor… 

Tamara Taylor stars in October Faction

The 49-year-old Canadian actress tackles the role of monster hunter Deloris Allen. She’s the wife of Fred (played by J. C. MacKenzie) and mother to Viv (Aurora Burghart) and Geoff (Gabriel Darku).

In an interview with TV Insider, she opened up about her character Deloris, saying: “She’s an interesting paradox to me because she definitely is a true believer in what she’s doing. She believes in Presidio [the monster-hunting syndicate] and what they stand for, and she feels like she’s protecting the human race as well as protecting her children. But she does feel like she can only protect her kids from the truth for so long.”

She continued: “She’s walking this razor’s edge where she’s trying to figure out how to present what she and Fred do without completely upsetting the balance of the family.”

It’s a great role, and of course, Tamara smashed it. So, where have we seen her before?
