“Days of our Lives” 12/09/2015 ….. Welcome Back Ava Vitali

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: December 09, 2015

Well, she’s back. I pretty much knew this was all we’d get to see of Tamara today, but it was sufficient to make me smile. I love that she’s back and I know Tamara will be on for a limited run, but we’ll make the most of it and hope they don’t kill her off so we can expect Ava back in Salem again. And didn’t she look amazing? I’ve always loved the wardrobe this show chose for Tamara as Ava. So much a part of the character and Tamara works it to the hilt. I also loved the femme fatale glasses. I’ll be doing what I’ve been doing on my Stephen Nichols site in putting in a featured image.

“Days of our Lives” 50th Anniversary & Ava Vitali First Look

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: November 16, 2015

Finally something of Tamara from her return to DAYS OF OUR LIVES. I have a video of the show’s 50th anniversary, plus the first look of Ava in a scene with a grown up Joey Johnson played by cutie pie James Lastovic. The last time we saw him, if you’ll remember, was on Ava’s cellphone when she went to the neo-natal intensive care ward to get the photo for Kayla (Mary Beth Evans). This time we see a sixteen year old young man. Why am I thinking Ava will be a bit of a Mrs. Johnson to Joey’s Graduate? Video and screencaps to follow.

Some Good News

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: August 10, 2015

Some things have been going on behind the scenes you might not be aware of, but I’ve been mulling something over in this brainium of mine and I decided something that I think you’ll all be very happy about. This decision has to do with something you guys have been writing to me about for a while. That thing is, I’ve decided to reactivate the two media sites I had on Tamara. So what does this mean, exactly? It means that for right now I decided to get the soap opera site back up and running first. It’s taken the better part of the week to get all the bugs worked out and tonight I finally got those exterminated and the site is now back up. Right now there are no new videos added. What is up there now are some episodes of Tamara from ALL MY CHILDREN as Reese Williams, and the majority are of her as Taylor Raines Walker from her second go around on DAYS OF OUR LIVES. My main impetus currently is to get all her work as Ava Vitali up considering her upcoming return in December…oh why does that have to be so damn far away? I hope you will be happy of this decision as I know I’ve had a lot of emails regarding this. So enjoy. Just click on the banner below to go there. If you want to know the whole story surrounding the reasons why the media site went down, please feel free to go to this link ABOUT OBSCURE MEDIA to read.

Tamara To Return To “Days” As Ava Vitali

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: July 06, 2015

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.

TVLine Items: Days’ Ava Returns

One of Salem’s most unpredictable residents is popping back in for a visit.

Tamara Braun, who portrayed Mafia princess Ava Vitali on Days of Our Lives in 2008, will return for the soap’s upcoming 50th anniversary.

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.

TAMARA OBSCURA || NEW INTERVIEW WITH TAMARA

Author: tamara obscura | 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 obscura | 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.
