Tara Adams is the main protagonist in the Disney Channel Original Movie, 'Radio Rebel'. Tara is a high school teen living a double life. You’d never guess that Tara, the quiet, shy girl, is the voice of the edgy radio personality: Radio Rebel. As her on-air personality becomes increasingly popular, she must figure out how to handle both her fans and critics, all while being true to herself. And she also really likes Gavin but never tells him and gets super shy around him.

Tara is an anonymous radio host named, Radio Rebel, on SLAM FM. She says that she used to be very shy and afraid to be wrong. She started Radio Rebel to say what matters to her. She has a major crush on Gavin. Her best friend is Audrey and they both have rocking styles. Tara knows where she stands and how to stand up to others, even if she's not there in person. Tara mostly stands up for the misfits on her radio show, Radio Rebel. In the end she takes a risk and reveals who she is at prom.

Tara is portrayed by Debby Ryan.
