United States of Tara Trivia
Tara Gregson's personalities in addition to Buck mentioned in our series description included:
"Alice" who is the perfect mom and housewife similar to those seen in 1960s family sitcoms.
"Chicken" is basically just Tara herself at five years of age.
"T" who is a sixteen-year-old pot-smoking girl who is also pretty slutty.
"Gimme" who is more animal in nature than human. It was extremely destructive and screamed a lot.
"Shoshana Schoenbaum" is a feminist psychologist from the 1970s who speaks with a New York accent.
"Bryce Craine" is Tara's half-brother who molested her when she was a child.
Tara's affliction is called "dissociative identity disorder" but is more commonly referred to as "multiple personality disorder".
Charmaine Craine played by actress Rosemarie DeWitt was originally only supposed to appear in a "guest-starring" role but apparently they liked what Rosemarie did with the character. They made her a regular on United States of Tara.
All of Tara's alter-egos are right-handed just like her except for Buck who is left-handed.
Toni Collette was pregnant during United States of Tara's final season. By the end of filming she was five months along!
