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.

TAMARA OBSCURA || REVIEW FOR “TENNESSEE IN THE SUMMER”

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

I have an excellent review for you of Tamara’s play TENNESSEE IN THE SUMMER. I love this review because it exemplifies the reason I think Tamara is coming into her own as an actress of some gravitas. I won’t gibber too much and just let you read it. A preview below with a link to the press section. And what I love most about this review? It didn’t have to mention Tamara’s Emmy or her soap roles. It just lauded her on her merit as an actress.

Notable as larger-than-life Williams, theater veteran Jack Heller reveals the acute vulnerability beneath the playwright’s selfishness, roar and bluster. Tamara Braun, best known for her daytime television roles, matches Heller every step of the way as Williams’ female counterpart. The pair’s tour-de-force performances are intensified further by the intimacy of the small, black-box theater.

Note to casting agents: Read this review several times over and consider casting an actress know knows her stuff instead of a fluff piece.

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 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.

Some new press additions for you. I have the latest edition of ABC SOAPS IN DEPTH where GH executive producer, Jill Farren Phelps, denies Tamara is returning to GH. Yeah Jill, be more convincing. I also have two other things that have been backlogged. I still have a ton of stuff to get up in the press section and the scans in the gallery but…. Enjoy. As usual, links in the articles lead to the actual scans in the gallery. However, if you want to see the actual scans, I’ll include the links there in post. Also, I’m currently working on getting July’s DOOL‘s screencaps and clips done and added to the site. Stay tuned.

TAMARA OBSCURA || TAMARA HAS BEEN LET GO BY CORDAY

Author: tamara braun online | Posted On: June 07, 2011
According to Soap Opera Digest Online Tamara has been let go as Taylor. Apparently Ken Corday courts her for two years to come back and then cans her. You can read the news at the above link. This is sad news. I was getting used to seeing her again.

More Exits From DAYS!
By SOD • Posted: Jun 7, 2011

The bloodbath continues: Soap Opera Digest has learned Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe), Tamara Braun (Taylor) and Bren Foster (Quinn) have been let go as part of the cast trimming Executive Producer Ken Corday talked about in the issue currently on sale.

I’m thinking to write to Corday and perhaps make him change his decision. Here are some contact addresses:

TAMARA OBSCURA || TWO NEW PRESS ADDITIONS

Author: tamara braun online | 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?

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 braun online | 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 2011 PRESS SECTION

Author: tamara braun online | 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.
