Baker was a friend of Amy Allen, both ladies worked at The Los Angeles Courier
Express. While Amy Allen was a part of The A-Team she was getting big profile
stories, which in the end got her a promotion to be foreign correspondence
for The Los Angeles Courier Express. Before Amy Allen moved she had talked
to Tawnia Baker about The A-Team and soon enough Tawnia Baker was taking Amy
Allen’s place as the extra member of The A-Team.
Tawnia Baker was introduced to us in the episode The Battle Of Bel-Air. The
opening scene see Tawnia Baker being undercover in a security firms build
where she was gaining access to Military files on The A-Team. Tawnia soon
found out The A-Team were going to be ambushed by the Military and Colonel
Decker. After racing to try and save The A-Team they were still ambushed but
Hannibal had a plane and soon escaped. Tawnia Baker would soon become the
Amy Allen of The A-Team.
Tawnia Baker did not have a nickname like Amy Allen’s ‘Triple
A’ but the reason for the characters name ‘Tawnia’ was that
the creator of The A-Team Stephen J. Cannell has a daughter call Tawnia Cannell.
Tawnia Baker was only in eleven episodes before she left to get married.
Although she only had a short time in The A-Team she carried on the role of
the extra fifth member helping The A-Team well.
