|“From a dusty trail we rode into town past the bake
house and saloon with swinging doors. We pulled up
our horses at the First National Bank and slowly,
cautiously, dismounted. In my ears was the music of
‘The Good, the Bad and the Ugly’. “Should we rob the
bank today?" It would have been an interesting idea,
but the bank was only a front and the saloon had no
beer (real beer anyway), and the bake house had no
bread, unless of course there was a shooting that
day…film shooting that is.” Tane’ McClure grew up this
way, on the back-lots of Universal Studios. For a time it
seemed, all the world was make believe. Her father,
actor Doug McClure starred in the hit Western series
“The Virginian”. Tane’s grandmother was an Opera
singer, so it seemed only natural for her to have a
career in the entertainment industry. At age 4, she
guest-starred with her father on “The Virginian”, and
no, she didn’t get to rob the bank…darn.
As Tane' McClure grew up, she enjoyed music and
drama. At age 21, she landed her first recording
contract with RCA records under the stage name Tane
Cain. Her single "Holdin On" hit the top 40 Billboard
Charts. She toured the world with The Jefferson
Starship, Eddie Money, and others. Later she teamed
up with the "Playboy Girls of Rock and Roll" in Las
Vegas. As a singer-songwriter, one of Tane's credits
include 3 tracks on the hit film "The Terminator". More
recently, Tane' with her group "Double Take" on
WTG/CBS Records hit the Billboard Dance Charts.
Tane' never forgot her acting dreams. Her first co-
starring role was in the cult classic "Crawlspace" with
Klaus Kinski. She studied drama continuously,
determined to be "more than just another pretty face".
Developing into a talented comedic and dramatic
actress, Tane' landed the series regular role of the
quirky mistress on the hit ShowTime series "Sherman
Oaks". She began guest starring on comedy shows
like "Night Stand" as Coquette LaBaron (opposite
Garry Marshall), as well as in the day-time soap "Bold
and the Beautiful" just to name a few.
Currently Tane can be seen in the theatrical hit
"Legally Blonde" playing Reese Witherspoon's Sexy
Mom, and co-starring in "Cruel Intentions 2" with Mimi
Rogers. Also watch for Tane on CMT in the Academy of
Country Music Awards nominated music video "You
Shouldn't Kiss Me Like This".
Tane's other film and television credits include: the
current cable/video Hit Movie "Bare Deception",
"Scorned II" with Andrew (Night Eyes) Stevens, and
John (Bold and the Beautiful) McCook; "Cobra Mission";
"Caged Hearts"; "Border to Border"; "Raven's Kiss";
"Go"; "Shadow Hour"; the television series "Bay Watch
Nights" ("Bay Watch" spin-off), "Keenan Ivory Wayan's
Show" and many more. As a writer/producer and
actress Tane's most recent film accomplishment is the
super-natural thriller "Trance" which also stars Martin
Kove and Bruce Abbott.
As an expert professional horsewoman and show-
jumper, Tane' jumped a 4 foot fence riding bareback
for the TV show "Harts of the West" starring Beau
Bridges. This dangerous feat almost killed two other
stunt-riders that had attempted it just days before!
Tane' enjoys competing in the National Show Jumping
Circuit where she has won many state championships.
In the feature film "Cobra Mission", Tane' plays a
double crossing British Agent with a kick&literally,
Tane' uses her martial arts skill opposite the champion
kick boxer Don-the-Dragon Wilson.
With so many talents, Tane's life might seem dizzying,
but it's all in a days work for her as she rides off into
the sunset singing a tune. She just can't resist that
classic film ending!
