  • [002] SCANS: 07/27/2015 – SOAP OPERA DIGEST CASTING NEWS

 



Good news. Tamara is returning to television, this time back to DAYS OF OUR LIVES as her Emmy Award Winning counterpart Ava Vitali. According to various sources, Tamara has already begun filming her scenes June 17. Her first airdate will be on the December 9, 2015 episode. I know, why so far away? It’s due to the soap’s advanced filming schedule. So we have to wait all that time to see her back as the hopefully back from insanity Ava, though she was the last time we saw her when she left the DiMera mansion. So are we thrilled? I know I am. Here’s hoping this spells the beginning of Tamara’s return to us. We’ve missed you Tamara.

Tamara Braun Returning to ‘Days of our Lives’ in December as Ava Vitali

Posted by Kevin Mulcahy Jr.

Emmy Award-winning actress Tamara Braun is returning to NBC soap opera Days of our Lives in December as Ava Vitali, according to TV Insider, who describes the character as “a pill-popping mob spawn who split town rather than face trial for sabotaging an airplane, an act that led to the death of Grandpa Shawn and two others.”

Braun began shooting June 17 and show up on screen December 9.

She joins the growing list of returning Days actors including Peter Reckell (Bo), Stephen Nichols (Steve), Martha Madison (Belle), Jason Cook (Shawn-Douglas) and Alison Sweeney (Sami).

Braun also briefly appeared on Days in 2011 as Nicole’s sister, Taylor Walker. Her other daytime roles include hellcat Carly Benson on General Hospital and Reese Williams on All My Children.

First of all I need to say this. My 91 year-old mother died on Saturday morning, the 16th of May at 1:50 am. I was called by the doctor at the hospital where I’d taken her the previous Monday, and told to get there as soon as I could. I tried to collect myself and headed to the nearby bank to get the money out for cab fare as I don’t have a car. While there two police officers who were in the variety store in the plaza asked me if they could assist me. I was already balling my eyes out because I had a feeling of what was happening. This was about quarter after one that morning. I told them I’d been called and the dire necessity of my getting to the hospital. The man and woman officers promptly put me in the cruiser and drove me to the hospital, running red lights to get me there. I don’t know who they are, but I thank them from the bottom of my heart. Had it not been for them I wouldn’t have been there for my mom when she passed about thirty minutes later. I stayed with her and took the walk down with her before heading home around six am Saturday morning.

I debated whether to say anything on any of my social media accounts, or anywhere else for that matter. But I finally decided I would make a Twitter post about my loss. Sort of mark it in a way. Have at least a mention of it in my timeline as a memory of it. So I had some of my followers offer their condolences including one who I happened to meet, I think, on a message board for DAYS OF OUR LIVES when Tamara was on as Taylor Walker. Her name is Dawn Elicia. She was so sweet in offering her condolences, but she did something that I will never forget, she tweeted Tamara telling her about my mom and Tamara had this to say:

I want to thank Tamara so much for taking the time to say this. You have no idea how much this meant to me. The next two weeks are going to be difficult with the funeral later this week and the settling of her matters next, but I know for a fact that this will carry me as I navigate the difficult emotional waters these next few days. Tamara you are the best. Dawn, no words.



Here finally are the screencaps and clip from Tamara’s brief return to GENERAL HOSPITAL as her iconic role of Carly Corinthos. I’ve included the flashback scenes from the episode in the screencaps for you. Didn’t she look luminous? I thought she was just so good in how she slipped effortlessly back into the Carly we’d all come to know and love. This makes me miss her all the more and really would love to see her back on either daytime or primetime in a more permanent capacity. I’ll likely draw some fire from a certain faction but I felt Tamara’s bit was the reason the current portrayer of Carly still has her job. I’m not mentioning names, but you guys know what I’m talking about. And again I’ll register my contempt for the powers that be at GENERAL HOSPITAL for the travesty at not including Jennifer Bransford to this supposed “Carly-Palooza”. Too often I’ve seen on message boards about this episode that Jennifer wasn’t Carly and nor should she have been included because she wasn’t attractive enough. I feel that is so disgusting and demeaning to say to any woman let alone Jennifer who I feel did as much with the part as she was allowed under Guza’s craptastical writing. I feel Jennifer more than Laura Wright embodied all the elements both Sarah Brown and Tamara infused Carly with for a continuation of the character. Those aforementioned powers that be failed to utilize Jennifer’s abilities to the fullest, instead pulled the same tired trick of having a woman go nuts over loving Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard). Shame on Bob Guza for reducing Carly to such a stereotype as well to Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati for their disgusting tactics regarding Jennifer Bransford.

Now I’m including the clip of the episode from a Youtube link Tamara provided in a tweet. Why? Every single time I upload anything that is copyrighted no matter all the disclaimers I put on it, my account always seems to get yanked from Youtube and I have to sign back up. I’m not willing to have to put myself through that headache again. I’ve had two accounts pulled and I like the one I have. So due to that I’m going to include the full episode here. Tamara’s parts start at the 18:30 mark.

  • [794] SCREENCAPS: 04/01/2014 – GENERAL HOSPITAL



Hi guys. My apologies for not having been around, but I’ve had some health issues and my mom hasn’t been well. I wanted to let you know that I have Tamara’s episode of GENERAL HOSPITAL from April Fool’s Day for the GENERAL HOSPITAL 51st Anniversary. I’ll try to get that capped up and up sometime later today. I know I still haven’t gotten the media site or the soap site back up, but I’m working on it. I’ll try to have an alternative for viewing the clip here. Stay tuned.

Onto a shallow note, didn’t Tamara look amazing? It seems like she’s drawn some elixir or something. She positively glowed. Dare I say Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos) looked happy to have her back? I have to still my heart though. Seeing her was both heartwarming and heartwrenching to know it was only a one off. Though during the live tweeting session, Tamara did say she had to “get back to the set.” Could that mean our girl is working on something? Here’s hoping it’s something a little more permanent. It is pilot season after all. Anyway good to see her back. Below is a preview pic. My only gripe about the episode was its shunning of the lovely Jennifer Bransford’s contribution to the character of Carly. I found that just a little insulting.



A new event for you tonight. Tamara looked amazing at the Premiere Of MGM Pictures and Screen Gems’ “Carrie.” The film features Tamara’s former GENERAL HOSPITAL co-star @CynthisPreston (Faith Roscoe). I think Tamara’s outfit looks so charming and fun. I also think Tamara looks so fresh and beautiful with her new brunette locks. Just stunning. Special thanks to Bielle at Stana Katic Brasil for the find.

A note about Tamara’s SUPERNATURAL episode. I know I put up the notice about it being on. Apparently it wasn’t. Bummer. The episode was listed on my cable programming guide. I was really looking forward to seeing her in it. Again, bummer. Good news though, you can purchase the season eight BluRay/DVD/ULTRAVIOLET version now. Click on the BluRay cover below.



I was finally able to get a hold of these. They’re four stills from Tamara’s role as Ronnie Santino on NECESSARY ROUGHNESS. Special thanks to Raina for her kindness. Most appreciated Raina. Here’s hoping Ronnie makes a second appearance. I’d love to see Tamara back.
