A Personal Thank You to Tamara and To Dawn

Author: tamara braun online | Posted On: May 19, 2015

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.

“Supernatural” – E8X14 Trial and Error Media

Author: tamara braun online | Posted On: February 14, 2013

All I can say is that Tamara was a whole ball of fun in this episode. I adored her as Cindy Cassidy who is as Tamara described her, “A washed up country singer who has quite a contentious and sassy relationship with her father. One of three sisters, I played the firecracker.” And did she ever. The only issue I have with Cindy is that she called my Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki), “Ken doll.” Too funny. For some background information on the episode I thought I’d give you a crash course on SUPERNATURAL‘s history. Someone attached to the Cassidy family made a deal with what is known as a Crossroads Demon, someone who can grant any wish, however, you have to sell your soul to them. As a part of the deal you’re granted a ten year reprieve in order to live whatever life you wished for, but as part of the payment when the deal is up, the Crossroads demon comes for you. In the episode it’s revealed that the demon was THE demon of Hell, Crowley played by Mark L. Shepard. For the past four years Crowley has sort of been the Big Bad of the show. He’s caused Sam played by Jared Padalecki and Dean Winchester played by Jensen Ackles more than their share of trouble. When the deal comes due the demon sends his/her hellhounds to bring in the deal maker who is then pulled into Hell. It’s not the nicest of deaths but this is Crowley. Want to know the kicker of this episode? Jensen Ackles got his first start on the soap opera DAYS OF OUR LIVES where he played the part of Eric Brady (now played by Greg Vaughan) who had fallen in love with a certain Taylor Raines Walker, then played by Katherine Ellis (August 6, 1998 to May 24, 1999). Of course we all know Tamara went on to play the part. I’m wondering if Tamara mentioned this to Jensen who has gone on record as saying if this SUPERNATURAL thing didn’t work out, he could always go back to the soap. Not now Jensen, and SUPERNATURAL has just been renewed by the CW for a ninth season. Lucky for us fans. Now onto the irony of this situation. You know my love for Mitch Pileggi and how I want Tamara and Mitch to do something together? Well Mitch once played Sam and Dean’s grandfather, Samuel Campbell. A further six degrees is that this coming week on Mitch’s show DALLAS, Bobby Ewing (Patrick Duffy) goes on trial for attempting to murder Mitch’s character Harris Ryland. Why is it six degrees? The name of the episode is called…you guessed it Trial and Error. You can’t make this stuff up.

TAMARA OBSCURA || PRESS ADDITIONS

Author: tamara braun online | Posted On: August 13, 2012

As promised, I have a couple of press additions for you. the first is an article Tamara did back in April 2012 from Soap Opera Digest where she discusses her magical time with preparing for her play Tennessee In The Summer, plus her meeting President and Michelle Obama at the White House, her attending the Kennedy Center Honors and the Grammys. She also talks with pride about her grandfather. The other article is from ABC Soaps In Depth from this past July where she talks solely about her role in the play. Enjoy.

To Come: Tamara’s screencaps from her DAYS work as Taylor Walker.

TAMARA OBSCURA || NEW INTERVIEW WITH TAMARA

Author: tamara braun online | Posted On: April 28, 2012

I’ve been a little remiss at posting here due to the recent issues I had with the images I posted from Tamara’s play. The thing that has been running through my mind is, “How to proceed in terms of bringing Tamara’s fans what they’ve come to expect here?” And with good reason. So I’ve been juggling the pros and the cons in figuring out how to balance the needs of this site as well as those of the original authors/photographers and such of the various things that make up a fan website. So what I’ve decided to do is change the policy here at TAMARA OBSCURA. From here on I will post the content in the gallery or media sites and include in the post or page the original source, therefore any complications can be addressed by the fact I have posted the original source as well as comply with the nature of what is termed “Fair Use” for the purpose of furthering the understanding and education of people on the career of Tamara Braun. So without further adieu. I have an interview with Tamara on a wide range of things. First is her play, TENNESSEE IN THE SUMMER where she explains her character Woman. She then goes into the survival of the Soap Opera genre as well as her role in the groundbreaking storyline involving the first Same-Sex marriage on daytime. Tamara also gives us a bit of insight into why she became an actress. I have added the article to the press section as well as cited the original source. Below is a snippet of Tamara’s interview.

Phyllis: Do you prefer acting for television, film or for the stage? Do you prepare for one differently than the other?
Tamara: I like the subtleties that film and TV allow that theatre does not. The camera does not lie. It picks up thought and inner life. But with film you have to wait so long to see the final product. TV airs much quicker than film and daytime…such quick turnaround but often I was too busy to watch.

In theatre, the audience becomes another entity to your performance. You try and not let them change your performance but inevitably one is affected by it. We are affected by people’s energy in life so of course we will be affected in the theatre. If the audience is with you on a certain night it can propel your performance to great heights and if they are not really with you (and the cast takes it in) then unfortunately the performance can feel off…in terms of preferring one more than others… I like them all for the challenges that each bring.

TAMARA OBSCURA || TAMARA’S LAST (DAY AHEAD) EPISODE

Author: tamara braun online | Posted On: September 21, 2011
Well, I just got through watching the day-ahead episode of Tamara’s final day on DOOL and I can tell you, they did not kill her off. Taylor lives and has gone off into the Bollywood sunset with Quinn (Bren Foster), Vivian (Louise Sorel) and the newly returned Ivan (Ivan G’Vera). Apparently Ivan is a producer in the lucrative Bollywood film industry and he returned to Salem to reclaim his Madam, Vivian. He has a private plane and along with Ms. Alamain, he’s taking Quinn and Taylor off with him. So Taylor has survived. I have to say, this farewell was way better than Tamara’s first go around as Ava. There is the chance Taylor might return, though considering this so-called ‘new’ path Ken Corday is taking this show on, I doubt it. I think the capper on this departure had to be the final scene Tamara as Taylor had with James Reynolds (Abe Carver). I’ve loved James since I first saw him as Abe back in the 80s, and to have her final scene be with him was sublime but bittersweet. I still think this reboot Corday has launched is a bit premature. All the exits in one fell swoop is a bit too much and to lose such a talent as Tamara is too big a hit. As of tomorrow’s actual NBC network airing, it’ll be my last for DAYS OF OUR LIVES. It’s been a good run, however, Tamara’s presence made the show watchable and for me her final day tomorrow means I’m done. In the coming days I’ll try to get her final months of episodes up in the gallery and in the media section. With not having to record each day it’ll be easier. I also really want to clear all the rough clips off my computer to make some room. So all I can say is this, for all my visitors, stop by Tamara’s TWITTER page and leave her a tweet or two about how much she’ll be missed. I will be doing it right now. Hope to see you soon Tamara. I’m going to miss you each day.

TAMARA OBSCURA || TAMARA’S LAST DOOL AIRDATE REVISED

Author: tamara braun online | Posted On: September 08, 2011
According to the latest edition of SOAP OPERA WEEKLY, Tamara’s last official airdate as Taylor on DOOL has been revised to 22 September 2011. There’s still no word as to the how Taylor will be written off, but I know one thing…I’m going to miss Tamara. She’s been a huge asset to this show over the past few months and I still truly believe TPTB never truly utilized Tamara the way they could have.

I also wanted to give an update as to the caps and clips. What is taking so long is that I’m now ripping all clips to HD format. This means it takes double the time to save. I’m so far about half way through July’s episodes and will be posting them when done.

I’m still workign on Tamara’s Taylor clips and caps. I want to get all of July done, so that’s what the hold up is. In the meantime, I have Tamara’s first ever film. This is from 1997 where Tamara played Terri’s Secretary in the film SOUL FOOD. Tamara’s only scene is with Vanessa L. Williams and a little boy. Blink and you’ll miss her. Hope you enjoy seeing Tamara’s first ever appearance in a film.

PLEASE WAIT TILL THE CLIP LOADS FULLY

TAMARA OBSCURA || STATEMENT FROM GARIN WOLF

Author: tamara braun online | Posted On: August 18, 2011
About all the speculation on Tamara’s GH return. Garin Wolf has ended some speculation. He stated that the rumoured Woman or Lady in White is NOT Tamara. So I guess with NuKate already cast in Kelly Sullivan and the spec about the aforementioned Woman in White being put to rest, looks like the only rumour not being quashed is the one where Tamara reclaims her role as Carly. My feeling here is that the announcment will come after Labour Day. Why? I think this delay in the announcing Tamara’s definite return has to do with her continuing to air as Taylor on DOOL.

Update on the screencaps and clips: I’m still in the process of getting things caught up. I’m currently building another site for another actor I love and I want to finish that before I get what I do have done up. That will hopefully be the weekend. I’ll keep you posted.
