As you’d expect, that means she had the responsibility of acting as a second mother and third parent to the rest of her family.

Throughout her career, Sarandon has won an Academy Award for Best Actress in Dead Man Walking, a SAG Award, and several nominations for Daytime Emmy’s, Primetime Emmys, and nine Golden Globes Awards. 

Apart from her career, Sarandon has been steadfast in her fight against the political war machine. She’s become an outspoken figure who often makes appearances during presidential campaigns, standing proudly behind progressive candidates like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Age (as of July 28, 2022): 55
Born: New York, New York
Occupation: Editor
Known For: Outdoors Editor of Tampa Bay Times

Terry Tomalin is the youngest of the Sarandon siblings whose age is listed!

Terry was a beloved colleague and friend who spent more than 25 years as the outdoors editor of the Tampa Bay Times.

The newspaper described him as “a well-known outdoorsman across the state. Boat captains respected him, both for his fearlessness and generous spirit. He had an encyclopedic knowledge of all things Florida.”

He graduated from the University of South Florida in 1983 and worked his way up the media hierarchy as an investigative reporter, a police reporter, and so forth, all within Florida.

Three years later, he left his job in between the slabs of concrete walls at the newspaper and backpacked through New Zealand. It turned out to be the best career choice of his life, as he was named the Times’ outdoors writer when he returned.

Terry tragically passed away after suffering a heart attack at 55-years-old after he and his 14-year-old son Kai were taking their lifeguard test together at the North Shore Aquatic Center in St. Petersburg, Florida. “We are devastated,” said his wife, Kanika Tomalin, who served as Deputy Mayor of St. Petersburg and married Terry in 1999.
