It's been more than 30 years since "One Life to Live's" Ed and Carla Hall reigned supreme among a handful of black characters on daytime television. Today, the soap opera landscape is slightly better.

Two black actors with Pittsburgh ties are heating up the small screen opposite each other in one of the raciest daytime acquaintance-rape story lines since Luke raped Laura on "General Hospital."

Homestead native and Carnegie Mellon University graduate Tamara Tunie plays the smart, sultry, former district attorney Jessica Griffin on CBS's "As the World Turns."

Pittsburgh-born and Duquesne University-educated...

In more than one way, Tamara Tunie is getting ready for a hot experience at the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey in Madison.
Beginning Tuesday, Tunie will play a three-week engagement as La Marquise de Merteuil in "Les Liaisons Dangereuses," Christopher Hampton's 1987 adaptation of Choderlos De Laclos' novel, which was a Parisian potboiler in 1782.

"It's a very hot play," Tunie says, flashing a perfect smile that sets off her wonderfully high cheekbones. "Very hot," she adds, fanning...

Tamara Tunie, who simultaneously plays Medical
Examiner Melinda Warner on NBC’s “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and Jessica Griffin on CBS’ “As the World Turns,” has always been a multitasker.

“It’s like, the more I have going on, the better,”
Tunie said during a recent interview. “My mom, she’s a doer, too. She’s a multitasker. So I come by it honestly. My philosophy has always been ‘anything can be done.’ I say ‘yes’ to everything. That’s how I have moved through my career. ‘Yes, we can do that.’ ‘We could make that work.’ . . .

"Tune in Tamara: After playing Jessica for eight years, Tamara Tunie left the show in 1995. But the actress's recent return to the familiar set was almost like stepping into a time machine. 'It was surreal on some level because it will be five years in January since I left the show. I went into rehearsal and I was with Scott Holmes [Tom], Benjamin Hendrickson [Hal] and Ellen Dolan [Margo], and Dan Hamilton is directing and Vivian Gundaker is producing, and it's like I never left,' she says. 'There were completely familiar faces, and it's not like the character of Jessica was gone, so they didn't say, 'Welcome back,' or 'How was your trip?' [in the scenes],' notes Tunie, who was replaced by JoAnna Rhinehart while she was away. 'I just walked into the police station and started talking like the last time they saw me was yesterday. So it's like five years of my life vanished!'"

"Tamara Tunie (Jessica, As The World Turns) loves living with her guy, Gregory Generet; they're still giving each other flowers and planning surprise candlelit dinners. The relationship has even survived their renovating a five-bedroom Manhattan manse - partly because, Tamara concedes, they chose to remain in their apartment while the work was going on. 'We have our moments, but when things get tense, we say, 'You know, this is house tension.'

She says there was no instant chemistry when they went out for the first time - on a lunch date - over two years ago. 'I told him I wasn't interested...

For Law & Order: SVU's Tamara Tunie, playing a medical examiner is in her blood. "My parents are morticians and I grew up in a funeral home, so playing someone who deals with dead people is right up my alley," says the actress, 46. "My parents were very matter-of-fact about death. They taught us the dead are not to be afraid of-it's the living that you got to keep your eye on."

If you're a Law & Order: SVU fan and you get a chance to talk to Tamara Tunie, aka medical examiner Melinda Warner, you want to ask one thing: Are those actors or dummies on her table? "Oh, they're real people,...
