TAMARA OBSCURA || TWO NEW PRESS ADDITIONS

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: March 04, 2011
I’ve scanned and added two additions to the press section. Both have been typed up and added to the press section and the scans can be found linked on the page to the gallery. The one article concerns the recast of Taylor, the other is a letter from an AMC viewer who is very disgruntled with the way the Reese and Bianca storyline is ending on the show. I can’t say that I disagree with anything that was said. I’m going to provide the links to the new additions, but I wanted to hilight the letter by Quin Hodge in Oxford, Miss. Here it is in its entirety:

Trying to make All My Children‘s Reese the enemy or bad guy, like she doesn’t care about Bianca or their marriage anymore, is one of the most insulting things the show could do. It is repeating the same pattern that Bianca’s relationships have followed too many times before. Someone always leaves her, and the relationship ends in a devastating way. We still remember how much Reese loves Bianca and how she would give up anything for her and the kids. She would never give up on Bianca’s love or their her family with Bianca! And, furthermore, to have all this happen through off-screen conversations and phone calls is really just a slap in the face. There is no logical reason for AMC to do that. Instead, just recast Reese. There is still time to undo this damage, and not ruin the only gay marriage in daytime TV, and show that AMC and ABC actually care about gay representation. Bring Bianca’s wife back to her and their family.

Quin Hodge, Oxford, Miss

I think the way both Reese and Bianca plus Tamara and Eden have been treated has been deplorable. The fact that Tamara and Eden were promised one storyline, but got another shows the reasons why they didn’t want to reup for more when ALL MY CHILDREN relocated to Los Angeles. Then Brian Frons, Julie Hannan Carruthers and the current writing staff at AMC wonder why Tamara has re-signed with DAYS and Eden signed with THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS. Can we blame them?

TAMARA OBSCURA || NEW PRESS ADDITION

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: February 27, 2011
Another new addition to the press section. It’s from CBS SOAPS IN DEPTH. It’s about the Taylor recast. Enjoy. As always, the article is available in the press section and the scan in the gallery.

Holy cow, soap fans! Emmy winner Natalia Livingston, who debuted as Taylor in January, has been replaced! So just who will play Nicole’s little sis now? Fellow Emmy winnder Tamara Braun! Oddly, Braun acted opposite Livingston on GH (where they played Emily and Carly, respectively) and even won an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress for her role as Patch’s crazy ex, Ava, on DAYS in 2009.

TAMARA OBSCURA || NEW PRESS ADDITION

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: February 24, 2011
Tamara made the cover of the new edition of SOAP OPERA DIGEST. The article is all about the casting change for the character of Taylor. The article is up in the press section and the scans are available in the gallery. An excerpt from the article is below:

Corday reveals he always felt Braun would be back in Salem, thanks to a memorable conversation in August 2009. “It was the night she and Darin [Brooks, ex-Max] sone the Wmmy and she was there with her mom,” he recalls. “She and I didn’t have that kind of relationship where I could be that candid, but the night she won, she was so happy and I was so effusive, the last thing I said to her was, ‘I believe you’ll be back on the show.’ And shee looked at me and said, ‘Call anytime.’ That’s how it went down, and here we are almost two years later and I made the phone call.”

TAMARA OBSCURA || NEW MESSAGE BOARD

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: February 23, 2011
There is a new message board that was started to celebrate the pairing of Taylor Walker and EJ Wells as initially played by Natalia Livingston and James Scott on DAYS OF OUR LIVES. It’s called ENCHANTING: EJAYLOR. It will continue to follow the pairing with Tamara in the role of Taylor. Why not stop by and join up to support Tamara as she begins in April. There’s lively discussion and lots of nice people there to make the atmosphere warm and inviting. Right now I’m not sure as Tamara begins to air if they’re going to change their banner, but right now it still has Natty up there. Just click the graphic below to get there.

Okay, random post…. just because.

TAMARA OBSCURA || NEW 2011 PRESS SECTION

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: February 16, 2011
I’ve been pulling together the 2011 press section. With the news of Tamara’s return to daytime, I really wanted to get the articles I’d collected so far this year typed out and put into the press section. Most of the articles deal with Tamara’s decision to not return to ALL MY CHILDREN as Reese Williams. If I may insert my jounalistic freedom of speech here, I’d have to say for the most part the new scribes for AMC are a little condescending of Tamara and the character of Reese. It’s as if they’re trying to make like she never existed. One article’s title is very much suspect: Bianca: Out With The Old, In With The Who?. As if Reese is ‘old’ per se. My main gripe is that no one has addressed the shoddy treatment she received at the hands of ABC and AMC while she was there. She signed up for one role and was handed another. It’s as if Tamara and by extension Eden Riegel’s decisions not to return are out of spite and not artistic integrity, not to forget that both were treated badly and promised something that didn’t come to fruition. Does Brian Frons and Julie Hannan Carruthers wonder why Eden signed onto THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS and Tamara is returning to DAYS OF OUR LIVES? Instead, they write Bianca as some sort of vacuous, unfeeling twit. Here would have been a great shattering moment for both Her Kendallness and NotBinks: When Thorsten Kaye refused to move west with AMC and it was decided that Zach was going to be killed off…why not have Zach die going to get Reese and have the plane crash with the both of them aboard. That way AMC has the ability to not undo the first gay marriage on television and keep Reese as the loving mate she was to the real Bianca. I have to wonder how Tamara feels about how coldly these writers are treating her character?

Editorial over. There are quite a few articles in the press section for 2011. The scans, as always, are linked through the article to the gallery.

TAMARA OBSCURA || TAMARA IS COMING BACK TO DAYTIME

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: February 15, 2011
In what I can only call a shocking announcement, it appears that Tamara is on her way back to daytime television. And it’s back to DAYS OF OUR LIVES, but not as Ava, her Emmy Award Winning role…but as a character currently being played by her former GH co-star Natalia Livingston. The character is named Taylor Walker. Here’s the news bite from SOAP OPERA DIGEST ONLINE, more below the cut:

Huge DAYS Casting Change!

Soap Opera Digest has learned that Emmy winner Natalia Livingston (ex-Emily/Rebecca, GH), who just started airing three weeks ago as DAYS’s Taylor, has been let go and replaced with another Emmy winner who used to call Port Charles home — Tamara Braun (ex-Ava, DAYS; ex-Carly, GH et al). Braun appeared as Ava in 2008 and took home a golden trophy for her Salem performances in 2009. She will start taping today; look for her to first air in late April. “It was decided to take the character of Taylor in a new direction,” explains Co-Executive Producer Gary Tomlin. “Natalia Livingston is an amazing actress and a consummate professional. She is a class act and everyone at the studio adores her.”

SOURCE

I want to thank Lisa for the heads up on this news. While I would have loved to have seen Ava back in Salem, it’s good news that Tamara will once again be gracing our screens and rest assured, TAMARA OBSCURA will be here to keep you up on Tamara’s new role.

TAMARA OBSCURA || HAPPY BIRTHDAY EDEN RIEGEL

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: January 01, 2011
Not only is this the first day of a new year, but it is also Eden Riegel’s birthday. I’m sure all Tamara’s fans wish the mom-to-be and Reese Williams’ lady love a fantastic day and hope that Eden has a great day with Andrew (hubby and daddy-to-be) and Riley (puppy-brother-to-be) a great day. Eden, you deserve it. I also want to say that I’m hoping that Heather (Eden’s character on The Young & The Restless) and Ronan (Jeff Branson) really make it. They shine as a couple and I hope TPTB at the Y&R don’t screw up with this one. They probably will, but I can hope can’t I?

Don’t forget to check out my site for Tamara’s DAYS OF OUR LIVES co-star, Stephen Nichols @ RENEGADE ~ STEPHEN NICHOLS ONLINE. The reason for the plug? Stephen is on the same show as Eden Riegel. Ironic that both of Tamara’s ex on-screen loves are on the same show. Of course on DOOL, Tamara played Ava Vitali, the role in which she won her Emmy for Best Supporting Actress on a Daytime Soap Opera. Now all we need is for Tamara to show up on Y&R as a love interest for both Tucker McCall (Stephen’s character) and Heather Stevens (Eden’s character on the show). Ronan and Ashely (Eileen Davidson) who? Just kidding………

TAMARA OBSCURA || GLORIA STUART 1910-2010

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: September 28, 2010
I wanted to make this post here to honour the life that was Gloria Stuart. Gloria passed away today after a battle with Lung Cancer. For GENERAL HOSPITAL fans, we remember Gloria for her cameo as Old Katherine to Tamara’s Young Katherine in the New Year’s Eve 2002-2003 episode of GH where we got to see what became Carly’s club The Cellar was like back in the swingin’ 1920s when it was a speakeasy where booze, crime and romance ruled Port Charles. It was a lovely couple of episodes where GH finally allowed Tamara to show what she could do in terms of acting. I also remember an interview on Entertainment Tonight with Tamara and Gloria, and dammit I wish I had it, but Gloria really had some nice things to say about Tamara and her future. I’ll always love Gloria for what she said. Thanks Gloria for your spirit and for your youthful dedication to your craft. From TAMARA OBSCURA & OBSCURE MEDIA, I want to offer my sincere condolences to Gloria’s family and to her fans. I know we’re all be a bit darker without her light. Sail on Gloria. You will be missed. In Gloria’s honour, I’d like to remind Tamara fans of the work she did on GH. Here’s my special video I put together. Something I called SPEAKEASY OF FATE. Enjoy.

TAMARA OBSCURA II 10/29/2002 – GENERAL HOSPITAL MEDIA

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: August 15, 2010

Okay, when was the last time one saw a whole day devoted to the return of a non-legacy member of a soap opera? Not! It’s not surprising that with the return of Vanessa Marcil to her much vaunted role of Brenda Barrett (remember the ‘Luminous Brenda’ comment Carly made while stuck in the quicksand?) ABC decided it was going to pre-empt ALL MY CHILDREN and ONE LIFE TO LIVE and give that airtime over to three ‘special’ episodes dedicated to three significant parts of Brenda’s life. For Brenda fans, I’m sure it was a joy to see them. For others of other legacy characters like Lucky played originally by Jonathan Jackson, I’m sure it was a major league pain in the …… Given that other shows have had original actresses/actors return to the parts they created like Andrea Evans, the original Tina Lord on OLTL, this came as a major letdown. However, the one upside to it all is that fans of some of the other characters who have either been reduced to occasional appearances like Monica (Leslie Charleson) or even those who have disappeared altogether like STEPHEN NICHOLS who played the part of the Dark Prince Stefan Cassadine or we, Tamara Braun fans, we were able to see those we loved and lost. So thanks to this, I have one episode of GH from October 2002. Tamara was beautiful as Carly and I truly loved the essence of humility and sensuality she brought to the part. I truly do miss her, though I don’t miss the crap they gave her. Thanks to our friend Hurley for the excellent screencaps and to me for the clip.
