Tamara Braun Online
EST 2006 | your premiere source
Welcome to TAMARA BRAUN ONLINE a site dedicated to Emmy Award Winning actress and activist Tamara Braun. Known for her best known roles as Ava Vitali (Days of our Lives), Reese Williams (All My Children) and Carly Corinthos/Dr. Kim Nero (General Hospital). Tamara as quite a few prime time credits to her name including Bosch, CSI, Saving Grace, Supernatural, Freddie, Castle, Without a Trace, House and including the films Little Chenier, Limbo Lounge, Fallen Arches, Pretty Rosebud. Tamara is also an activist lending her name and time to many charities and causes to create change in the world. This site has a strict NO CANDIDS POLICY. To read that please click the link.

Just some new scans for the gallery. I’m not going to bother transcribing them as neither are directly about Tamara. The both of them are more about William De Vry (Julian Jerome) talking more about Julian and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) and the other is about Julian directly. Tamara is pictured in both so that’s why the addition. To add, I’m feeling a bit better than I did earlier. That’s why the additional post after what was it, five earlier? I’m definitely getting back in the swing. In the words of Chuck Mangione who had the only number one hit with a flugelhorn, “Feels so good.” Actually more like a Doctor Strange reference.

A new scan added to the gallery and the text to the press section. Tamara gave some answers to Soap Opera Digest’s Take Five section. Her answers are so cute, along with the picture of her and her puppy, Little. Click on the image to get to the scan in the gallery.

I’m trying to get some press scans caught up and I thought with Tamara not having been on for the last two days (typical), I thought now would be a good time to get those cleared up. The first is a Soap Opera Digest set from the first of the year detailing the previews for 2018 for all the shows. Included was a section on GENERAL HOSPITAL where the head writers mention something about Kim. It’s such a small mention I’ll include it here instead of adding it to the press section. The scans are below the quote.

Kim: “She holds the key to some information that could prove useful to Drew. Plus, she is hte resident ob/gyn now, and we have babies to deliver! And ther certainly will be romance in her future.”

For the rest of the scans, please check out the link listed below to the press section. There you can find the newest additions in the header.

I’ve added some new scans to the gallery. It’s an article on Jacklyn Zeman (Bobbie Spencer) where she discusses her 40 years on GENERAL HOSPITAL. She talks about working with Tony Geary (Luke), Genie Francis (Laura), Kin Shriner (Scotty) and the late Gloria Monty. The pertinent part though is she mentions Tamara being back on the show. I’ll just include that section here, but I’m getting the very real feeling given what she says, Jackie would have loved to have had Tamara return as Carly. She speaks about Tamara with such love and affection of that of a mother with a daughter. I’m thinking the same way. And again I’m going to voice my feelings on the absurdity of having Tamara come back to play some other really needless character when she could have so easily returned as Carly. But can’t upset the Laura Wright fans….. Right? Scans can be found at the gallery link below.

Zeman is downright giddy over the recent GH return of Tamara Braun, who from 2001-05 played her daughter, Carly, and is now playing Kim Nero. “I want scenes with her so bad!” she chuckles. “I just think that would be really fun for the fans, for our viewers and the GH family, to see us two in scenes together, so I do hope that they will give us something to do. I just love her. She is such a talented actress and a really, really special person. I just love her heart, her soul and her spirit.” The pair has kept in touch over the years. “We both love theater, so we’re together a lot, because we go and see pretty much everything that comes to L.A., and we’d get together for lunch every once in a while. It’s just great to have her back.”

Here is today’s media for Tamara’s episode of GENERAL HOSPITAL. Not much here and the clip is very short, but hey, it’s Tamara. There is also some scans added to the press section. As always you’ll find the links under the requisite visual links. Just click on those to get you to where you want to go. After Thursday’s episode though, I won’t be posting the video here on the main site. The link will point to the section in the video section where you can watch the day’s clips. So get your clickers ready.

I’ve updated the press section again with some new articles on Tamara’s return to GENERAL HOSPITAL. Like before you can find those at the links provided below. It has been confirmed her character’s name is Kim Nero. I will be posting all screencaps and clips of her episodes so you can keep checking back for those updates. So now here is a bit of the downside of running a website. While I love that Tamara is back on our screens and she is so enthusiastic about her return, I’m feeling a might bit like my intelligence is being insulted by not bringing her back as Carly, a role she played from 2001-2005. I’ve received many emails from fans who have expressed their disappointment with the show for not bringing Tamara back as Carly. Based on the fiasco that was Taylor Raines Walker on DAYS OF OUR LIVES who Tamara played in 2011, I and others feel we’re being betrayed by not having her back as the character we loved. Ergo: Ava on DAYS and Carly on GH. I’m going to make it known that I cannot and have never been able to tolerate Laura Wright as “Carly”. I put that in quotes because to me and others Wright has never been playing Carly. She’s been playing some other incarnation of her Guiding Light character Cassie Layne. My dislike of Wright is also based on her statement, “I’m going to be playing my Carly closer to the original….” This she stated in the days preceding her November 2005 premiere on the show. In effect with those eleven words she more or less threw shade and dissed Tamara and Jennifer Bransford who played Carly as she should have been played as an evolving character, a growing character. Instead Wright took Carly back to the gutter snipe played by Sarah Brown, negated all of the growth, maturity, humility and humanity Tamara infused Carly with and brought her back to a sort of infantile creation. Now Wright wants to say she loves Tamara when she again threw shade at Tamara via various other statements she made after taking over the character.

I know this might rub some people the wrong way, however, I felt it needed to be said. I’m so tired of the soap industry believing they can play this kind of game and think it doesn’t mean anything to the fans. It does. Particularly when Tamara was so beloved by fans of the show and her fans as Carly. And again I mention that whole intelligence insulted thing I mentioned before. I mean on DAYS OF OUR LIVES when they de-Romaned Drake Hogestyn and brought in Josh Taylor as Roman Brady, then tried to tell us he didn’t play Chris Kositcek. Same thing with Tamara as Taylor but then trying to pull the woolly to try to convince us she didn’t just play Ava Vitali only three years before. I know it’s been twelve years since she played Carly, three if you count her brief appearance in the Carlypalooza episode that aired April 1st, 2014. To those of Tamara’s fans who waited and hoped to see her again as Carly, this is a huge let down. From the emails I’ve received some are wondering if they just won’t stick to the clips I’ll provide and avoid actually watching the show to voice their disapproval. I can’t say that I blame them. If not for this site and my dedication to it, I might have skipped it myself. But I don’t have to like it. And I don’t. I hate this and really have reservations about it all. If Tamara reads this I’m not criticizing you, I’m mad at the powers that be that think we’re so stupid we won’t notice. We have and we’re not happy.

Some new scans for the gallery and article for the press section. In this article Tamara talks about her work with sick and injured animals through the www.therealbark.org and www.dharmarescue.org. Tamara talks about her fostering Frankie and Little, a puppy she claims she is a “failed foster” because of how she fell in love with him and decided to keep him. When you look at the baby how could one not. Here is a picture of him from Tamara’s Instagram feed:

The article is linked here:

Tamara has just confirmed via her Instagram and Twitter accounts that she is indeed coming back to GENERAL HOSPITAL. Entertainment Weekly Online is saying it’ll be as a new character, but my Spidey Senses are telling me it’s as Carly. There’s a candid interview coming up in ABC Soaps in Depth with Laura Wright and I’m feeling that it is an exit interview, and with news that Vanessa Marcil (Brenda Barrett) is on her way back could GENERAL HOSPITAL be gearing up for another Carly/Sonny/Brenda triangle? Could be. Again this is all my speculation.
