Tamara Braun: The Days of Her Lives

by at . Comments

Tamara Braun recently spoke with TV Guide Canada.

Totally Tamara
Having played complex anti-heroine Carly Corinthos on General Hospital for four years (2001-2005), Braun is now seducing millions of viewers as gun-toting whack job Ava Vitali on Days of Our Lives. Needless to say, we love her.

Here are highlights from the aforementioned interview:

TVGuide.ca: How is life in Salem?
Tamara Braun: I’m enjoying it! Everyone’s so nice over there. It’s great to go into work and enjoy the people I act with.

TVG: Days just cast Ava’s father, Martino Vitali with prime-time vet, Joe Penny. Do you know anything more than we do about Ava? Have you created a back story for her?
TB: I always create a back story for every character I play. Generally, I like to keep that to myself – especially on a soap – because they’ll write what they want to write and sometimes it doesn’t always mesh with what’s in my head.

And to share that would be a disservice to the audience. In a film or in a play with a beginning, middle and end, it’s safer as an actor to share your views on the character because it’s already on the page.

TVG: Your arrival also coincided with a new era at Days of Our Lives. How is the mood on the set. From my couch, it looks like everyone’s having a great time!
TB: That’s great to know. I have nothing to compare to it, because as I said I didn’t watch Days before. Ed Scott’s been fantastic — and he really cares about the show, cast and crew. That always makes for a healthy working environment.

I thought Tamara was awesome. I am convinced that she can play any part put in front of her. I miss her as Carly on G.H. and wish she would reprise that role.
