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.

As we all know GENERAL HOSPITAL has been given CPR and has been renewed for another year. So here’s our duty Tamara fans. Let’s get together to tweet the current head writer to do what it takes to fix the character of Carly. We Carly fans know there’s something wrong with the way her current portrayer is playing her. Gone is the intricate and layered version Tamara created, and all that is left is this screeching harpy who can’t seem to make any of her pairings work. So here’s the mission if you choose to accept it, let’s begin tweeting current Executive Producer, Frank Valentini, and Head Writer, Ron Carlivati our wishes to see Carly fixed. Here’s Carlivati and Valentini’s Twitter handles:

@valentinifrank
@carlivatiron

I suggest being courteous but firm as to what’s wrong with Carly. Perhaps mention what Tamara did to bring the character alive for you. All positive thoughts here.

TAMARA OBSCURA would like to congratulate Tamara’s buddy and former GENERAL HOSPITAL co-star Alicia Leigh Willis on the birth of her first child, a baby girl named Simone Leigh. If you’d like to see a photo of mother and baby, go to my friend’s website @ ALICIA ONLINE. I wish the best for the new family. Congrats Alicia.


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.


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



I have some new event images of Tamara and finally, the long overdue adding to the gallery of three promo pics of Tamara as Taylor from DAYS OF OUR LIVES. Sorry for the delay.
