Yeesh, did I say ‘house cleaning’? I must either be in an alternate universe or insane. Yeah, I hate housework so sue me! Actually I’m going to be doing a major overhaul of the gallery. There is a lot of flotsam in there and it’s hugely disorganized I’m very unhappy. I’ve learned a lot about setting up galleries since my first installation of this website six loooooong years ago and I want to employ that set up for the gallery here. So this is going to entail a lot of moving and deleting as necessity calls. I don’t plan on taking the gallery off line, I know I’d have a full scale Tamara riot on my hands. Oh no! I will not face that. So please don’t be too alarmed if you see some things happening that might be considered hinky. I love hinky so that’s why I’m going to be doing this. The reason I’m doing this is to prepare for Tamara’s start on NECESSARY ROUGHNESS. I’m also in the process of trying to complete Tamara’s time on DAYS OF OUR LIVES as Taylor and get the screencaps in the gallery and the clips in the soap media site. I’ve been too remiss in getting those done. So during this time please be patient. In the end it’ll be worth it. Another thing, the main site is going to be undergoing some minor touch ups. I want to add some things here that will bring it more into line with my other sites. With Christopher Meloni done his work on the HBO series TRUE BLOOD and Mitch Pileggi done on DALLAS until January, I’ve found I have a lot of time on my hands…well, almost. I’m still taking care of my mother who is still rehabbing from her hip operation but in between my duties for her and the regular stuff here at home, I want to get this site a little more organized. I hope you’ll like that in the end. For now, take care and be safe.



I found the address of Tamara’s new show NECESSARY ROUGHNESS. I’ll include it here so you can write and express your support for Tamara and perhaps throw in a couple of “thank yous” to the team who cast her.

A little more on Tamara’s upcoming addition to NECESSARY ROUGHNESS, this from TVLINE.

Roughness Adds GH Vet and More!

• General Hospital alumna Tamara Braun is headed to Necessary Roughness as Dr. Dani’s little sis, TVGuide.com reports. The suds vet will first appear in Episode 14 of the USA Network drama’s current second season, the second half of which is slated to bow next year.

Looks like Tamara will first air this season, then return for the second half of season two next year. I’ll try to get a clarification on her first airdate and continuation.



Apparently Tamara is joining the show this according to Soaps.com.

I might say that I had hoped Tamara would join the DALLAS reboot. There’s a storyline on that show right now that has the character of Ann Ewing (Brenda Strong) have a secret daughter with her ex-husband Harris Ryland played by the wonderful Mitch Pileggi. Wishful thinking I guess.



Tamara let it slip at her July 22 event that she had something coming up. Apparently she’s signing up for NECESSARY ROUGHNESS on USA. Not sure if it’s a longterm role or just a guest starring. Here is the information. More below the cut.

Necessary Roughness Exclusive: Meet Dr. Dani’s Sister!

Look who’s coming to dinner on Necessary Roughness!

General Hospital alum Tamara Braun has been cast as Dr. Dani’s younger sister, Ronnie, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.

Ronnie is described as sassy, sexy and someone who loves making unannounced visits. She will first pop up in Episode 14 of Season 2, which all during the second half of the season.

In addition to playing Carly Corinthos on General Hospital from 2001 to 2005, Braun also appeared on All My Children from 2008 to 2009 and, most recently, on Days of Our Lives last year.

So are we excited? I know I am. As usual, I’ll be providing the latest in Tamara’s work and TAMARA OBSCURA will have the screencaps and clip up as soon as possible after she airs.



I’ve been extremely remiss at getting these up. It seems whenever I’ve gone to I’ve gone a little blonde and forgotten what I was going to do. So I finally have remembered. One of TAMARA OBSCURA‘s long time visitors and commenters has graciously given me permission to post a couple of pictures of her and Tamara. Noreen Smith went to see Tamara’s play TENNESSEE IN THE SUMMER in May and came back saying she was brilliant. Could there be any doubt of that? Noreen said that Tamara was so good and was really happy to greet her fans afterward and even allowed Noreen to share these images with TAMARA OBSCURA and her fans. So thanks so much Noreen for sharing these. I’ve marked them as belonging to Noreen. So I hope you enjoy them. Thanks to Noreen for sharing and to Tamara for allowing them to be taken. I can’t imagine after completing a show how tired she must have been. As always Tamara is a treasure. I believe the date was May 18 because Noreen said she was back home by the 24th. If I’m wrong Noreen please correct in comment. Thanks so much Noreen.

  • [ 002 ] FAN ENCOUNTER IMAGES: 06/18/2012 – NOREEN SMITH @ TENNESSEE IN THE SUMMER




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 Braun's first day as Carly Corinthos May 02, 2001 @ tamara-braun.com/tamarabraun.orgI should have had this up earlier, but alas I didn’t realize what the day was. This is an anniversary of sorts for us Tamara fans. It was on this day eleven years ago we first discovered the talent we know as Tamara Braun. This is the anniversary of her first airdate as our favourite mob moll, Carly Corinthos. I can still remember that episode, “The role of Carly Corinthos will now be played by Tamara Braun.” And that began four years of one of the best characters on GENERAL HOSPITAL and one of the most successful recasts on the show. In the subsequent years we were treated to a myriad of emotions and highs and lows as Tamara took us through Carly’s life both apart and with and apart and with and apart from Sonny (Maurice Benard). Together we experienced Carly’s disappointment at the thought she might not be able to conceive a child with Sonny and her desperation throughout the Panic Room storyline with the psychopathic Ric Lansing (Rick Hearst) and the South American run with Lorenzo Alcazar (Ted King). We were gripped when she gave birth to Morgan and dealing with the aftermath of Sonny’s shooting his wife in the head. The poignant alternate storyline where we went through the life Carly and Lorenzo had up until his death as the elderly Carly looked on and comforted him. Then the horror of a mother dealing with the death of her beloved Michael (Dylan Cash). All in all Tamara made Carly her own and no actress has really been able to capture that vulnerability and fieriness quite the way Tamara did. Carly’s maturity was never more evident as when Tamara played her, and her humanity was never more present as Tamara gave Carly that growth one has to expect if a long-term soap opera character is to survive. Thank you Mark Teschner for your good eye at realizing what Tamara could and did bring to the show. So Happy Anniversary Tamara.
