Kim has proven she’s pretty good at keeping secrets on GENERAL HOSPITAL, and it turns out portrayer Tamara Braun is, too! Of course, while the character was keeping her son, Oscar, in the dark about his brain tumor, the actress just couldn’t tell anyone she had been cast on GH in a brand new role! “That’s just being on a soap,” Braun admitted to Soaps In Depth. “Any soap. You always have to be quiet.”
Having started her daytime career as Carly Corinthos on GH, then playing Reese Williams on ALL MY CHILDREN and both Taylor Walker and Ava Vitale on DAYS OF OUR LIVES, Braun knows how important it is to protect spoilers from leaking on soaps. “My first time around on GH, my mother didn’t even know what role I was playing until I was about to start work, and I asked if I could tell her,” she revealed. “They were like, ‘Wait, you didn’t tell your mom?’ I was told not to say anything, so I didn’t!”
Of course, when she returned to GH as Dr. Kim Nero in November of 2017, her mother was in the loop because she was part of the support network Braun leaned on when making her decision whether or not to take the gig. “I’ve grown and I know I can tell my mother — although I didn’t tell her right away!” Braun confessed. “The people closest to me were part of my discussion about whether I would do it or not, but I didn’t tell her until I knew I was going to come back to GH.”
Hopefully, Braun isn’t telling her mother any storyline secrets so she can watch her daughter every day on TV and enjoy watching the storyline unfold! Stay tuned to see what happens next, and for more on your favorite GH stars, keep reading the ABC edition of Soaps In Depth magazine!
