Carmen Tanase (born January 18, 1961) is a Romanian actress. After graduating The Drama and Film Institute from Bucharest, in 1984, she joined the company of "Vasile Alecsandri" National Theatre in Iaşi (between 1984-1990) and then moved back to the capital city of Romania. Since 1990, she is a member of the Odeon Theatre company from Bucharest. As a student, she played in Dostoevsky's "The Possessed" (a dramatization of the great Russian novel), in John Steinbeck's "Sweet Thursday", in "Butterflies, Butterflies" by the Italian playwright Aldo Nicolaj (at The Very Small Theatre in Bucharest, having the legendary Romanian actress Olga Tudorache and Radu Duda, the would-be Prince of Hohenzollern-Veringen, as partners) etc. Following the fall of the Romanian communist regime, in 1989 (the end of Ceausescu's dictatorship), she also involved herself in the independent artistic movements that flourished after these events. She toured the world with Radu Duda, the two of them playing in "A Report to an Academy", the adaptation of a short story by Franz Kafka, directed by Cristina Iovita (the play was produced by the first Romanian independent theatrical group formed after the 1989 Revolution).
