“Vampire Diaries” star Kat Graham is set to make her feature film debut as Tammi Terrell in a biopic chronicling the life, career and sudden death of the Motown soul singer.
For the younger folks who didn’t have any Motown music playing throughout their homes and parents’ cars growing up….Tammi Terrell was a Motown songstress who had a string of successful duets with Marvin Gaye, including “”You’re All I Need to Get By”, “Your Precious Love” and “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.”
The movie will definitely require Kat to pull on her acting chops. Tammi died of a brain tumor in 1970 at the age of 24 years old (she was diagnosed with the brain tumor after collapsing on stage with Marvin Gaye in October 1967). The legend was also reportedly in a series of abusive relationships prior to her death. Speaking about the project, Kat said:
“I immediately connected to Tammi and her story in many ways and have felt the incredible need to tell it. Tammi Terrell defined passion and soul itself. … Getting lost in the music enabled her to override life’s punishments — for when she sang, she could use the hurt to create greatness and give the world hope that maybe they could overcome their pain as well.”
According to Deadline, The biopic is the first full-length feature through Kat’s Panthera Pictures production company and shooting will begin next year.
Outside of the biopic, we’ve also heard that Kat is working her debut album with producer Babyface. This should be interesting….
