Did they replace Tara?

It looks after one episode, Tara, a light-skinned africian american girl. Now in episode 2, replacing her is a different africian american girl. I like the first one, the attitude suited her. Did she get replaced, or is there 2 characters with the same name?

They replaced the light skinned girl. The episode that you saw with the first girl never actually aired on HBO. I guess after watching the pilot they decided to replace her, so they just re-shot Tara's scenes with a different actress.
I thought the first girl was very pretty, but I actually like the second girl better. She is pretty as well, but it a more unique way. And I feel like she commits more the character. I thought the first girl was too sweet.

I agree with mzchio.....I really liked the first Tara better. The new Tara's accent is terrible!!!!!

Awe, I like the Tara they have now. She seems like a much better actress with more character, better suited for the part.

The character of Tara deserved an actress with more fire and i think the second Tara adds more spit to her brand of fire.The first was too much of a milk sop* for the series. I think they made the right choice.The first might be pretty to Hollywood's standards but the *right Tara makes the character more alive than in the book, and I'll def be tuning in to see her more.

hate to say it, but starting to warm up to the new tara. I feel sorry for her, because of her mother.

I don't know ya'll, I really liked the first Tara. She seemed to have more bitch in her and the other is a bit too tame. She doesn't light up the screen in the same way. I hate to say it, but she bores me a bit. Eh, I guess I'll just have to wait and see if she grows on me.
