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.

  • [ 001 ] PRESS: 04/26/2012 – TAMARA BRAUN TALKS TENNESSEE WILLIAMS, DAYS OF OUR LIVES AND AMC


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.



According to Debby O’Connor, Tamara has a fan club event coming up in July. Here’s the information:

WHO: Tamara Braun (ex-Taylor, DAYS; ex-Carly, GH; ex-Ava, DAYS, ex-Reese, AMC)

There is a ton of speculation on the net that GENERAL HOSPITAL is going to be cancelled and the announcement will be coming as early as March. So here’s the deal there. We all know Ted King is coming back as either Alcazar (I hope) or as Tomas with the news that the Mannings are transferring from Llanview. So here’s what you need to do as Tamara’s fans. Ron Carlivati has a Twitter account. Start bombarding him with requests to bring Tamara back. Here is his Twitter account:

@carlivatiron Twitter. Let’s see what we can do to get Tamara back as Carly and clean up what Guza, Pratt, Phelps, Frons and Wright did to this once great character.



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.

There is a post over at the SoapCentral board, a poll actually, asking who you would like to see Tamara return to GENERAL HOSPITAL as. So far Carly is winning, though the anti-Tamara forces are winning…slightly. It also seems any positive thread about Tamara is deleted in support to LW and her verison of Carly. If you have an account there, please go to the link I’ll supply and vote for our girl for as long as the post remains up. If you want to post something positive about Tamara, please do. Be courteous and explain why Tamara is needed back on the show. It can only help.

ETA: 08/10/2011 – Well, it appears the thread was again deleted. As I said anything in any way positive toward Tamara on SoapCentral seems to find itself deleted. Bank on it, if another appears, it too will be deleted.

WHO WOULD YOU PREFER TAMARA BRAUN PORTRAY – SPECIFIES AN INVALID LINK DUE TO ADMINISTRATOR DELETION



I just wanted to let you know I’m in the process of getting Tamara’s episodes of DOOL updated. I have June alomst done and will be working on July. I spent a good portion of our Canadian long weekend getting the clips done, they seem to take the longest to do. The reason I’m trying to do this is, with all the news that Tamara “might” be returning to GENERAL HOSPITAL, I really want to get her work as Taylor done so that I can get the rest of the Carly gallery up and completed. Keep the vigil….it won’t be long.


I know it’s been a while since I updated, but with both my health issues and my apartment issues, I just haven’t had access to my recording devices and such to get the updates done. I’m hoping over the weekend to start that process. What the problem has been is someone in the building did something that caused a problem within the building that has affected many other tenants including my unit. My partner an I had to move out while some things were done, however, nothing is fixed fixed. If you know what I mean? There will still be a lot of interruptions this week and over the weekend, I have to prepare my unit for those repairs to take place so I’ll be off and on. I do apologize for not having anything for you. I’m sure you understand…shit happens.

And a blind item I thought you’d like to see. I’ve posted it to the Forum so you’ll have to sign up there to view it. If you are, please use a REAL username. I’ve had so many spammers sign up that I’ve really had to knucle down on the sign up proceedure. In fact, if you want to sign up, use the CONTACT FORM and provide me with the name you plan on using in the forum so that I know it’s you. Anyway, here is the post: TAMARA BLIND ITEM READ HERE.
