Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Tamara Braun Knows Ava Had A Very Traumatic Year

If there is anyone who knows what Ava Braun has been going through in this fictional town of Salem, you better believe that it has been her portrayer, Tamara Braun. In fact, the talented Days of Our Lives star recently opened up about her character and what kind of traumatic year she’s had. As many fans know by now, Tamara has also been nominated for the Outstanding Lead Actress award at this year’s Daytime Emmys. Keep reading below for everything you need to know.

Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Tamara Braun Knows Ava Had A Very Traumatic Year

Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Tamara was asked which reel she submitted for consideration for this year’s Daytime Emmys. She explained to the publication, “I submitted two scenes with Steve Burton [Harris] when we were at Bayview. Ava was talking about her hallucinations and her mental illness, how she was dealing with that, and the pain that her mental illness has caused her and others. I also submitted the scenes, when Gil tried to rape Ava.”

The brunette beauty continued, “They were with David Lee, who’s a wonderful actor as well. Ava was able to kind of trick him for a minute, get his gun, and pull it on him right before she actually shoots him. Then I submitted Ava and Harris in Paris. It was kind of light, silly and goofy. So the first scenes with Harris/Steve Burton were more vulnerable. The scenes with Gil/David Lee were, I guess, stronger. And the last scene with Harris/Steve was again light with a little more humor.”

Tamara also said that she found out about her nomination on her birthday out of all days. She said, “I was supposed to be at a Korean spot with my girlfriends, but two days before, my stomach started attacking me and I was pretty unwell. So I was on the couch with a hot water bottle and dealing with some grief in my life, when I got a call from Andrea [McKinnon, DAYS publicist]. She was like, ‘Do you know why I’m calling? Have you been paying attention to what’s going on today?’ And I was like, ‘No. What’s going on today?’ She told me I was nominated, and I started crying because I was in a space where some really positive news was very welcome. It made a hard month and a little sad day a lot better, and it was a nice birthday present.”
