    TVInsider is confirming that Tamara Braun (ex-Carly, GH) is returning to DAYS in her Emmy winning role of Ava Vitali.

    Braun won the Best Supporting Actress Emmy back in 2009 for her fierce potrayal of bad girl Ava Vitali.

    Braun will first air as Ava in December.  She began shooting June 17th.

    Hmmmm.  This really surprises me, but I’m interested to see where it’s going.  Certainly it is better that she’s back as Ava than as Taylor, which was slightly less of a disaster in her hands than Natalia Livingston’s but a disaster all the same.

    I have mixed feelings about this. I don’t have any interest in seeing Ava again, but Tamara was so good in that role that I can’t say I’m not curious.

    She left town if I recall.

    Though if we’re being honest she did not win that emmy for Ava in the voters eye, she won it for AMC’s Reese.

    ^^  I don’t know about that, but even then she deserved it.  Tamara was awesome as both characters.

    I’d say popularity was a big help in getting Braun nominated, and having Ed Scott at DAYS during that time helped the show be taken seriously by voters, and having a great reel led to her victory.  I’m sure her work was Reese didn’t hurt, though.

    She did have the best reel. I even said it in the submissions threads back then. But they were just finally getting some emmy support at the time and there was block voting with DOOL, AMC, and OLTL as four acting emmys came from those shows and the fifth sort of(Jeff Bransen at GL who was on AMC and always pre-nommed). I was worried it was gonna be Bree Williamson. DOOL has won more acting emmys since but there has also been four soaps on the air, making that easier than ever. ATWT was one of the other strong acting soaps(though not having the best actors as far as newcomers went but the imporvements in actors such as Austin Peck speaks volumes) that was competition for Y&R and GH and after it got cancelled, it opened the door for DOOL.

    Braun was so great but not getting how. She was Patch related. And her tape detailing her reasons and past was a blockbuster that was a slam dunk winner!

    I would guess most of the voters hadn’t seen her work as Reese but voted either based on her tape OR name recognition from being on GH.
