General Hospital’s Tamara Braun journeys into the primetime lineup playing the character Kate Smith on a new series titled THROTTLE. Braun sailed into Port Charles as Dr. Kim Nero for the second time around last year after leaving her character Carley behind 12-years earlier.
This new show’s plot “sounds quite interesting,” suggests Soap Opera News. The latest reports have Braun’s new character set in a world of technology rather than healthcare like General Hospital.
Trading ‘General Hospital’ Medicine for High-Tech Secrets
THROTTLE centers on a tech-billionaire who takes on criminals by using his high-tech skills and wealth. Along with his connections in the world, this billionaire is secretly working on revenge by building a vigilante crew.
According to Soap Opera News, this show is about this multi-billionaire seeking “modern justice.” After a corporate empire has “killed his family” his sights are set on bringing them down.
Still Bringing Them Down
This new primetime part won’t be too foreign for Braun as there’s a lot of taking down on General Hospital despite the show’s many doctors. The details that have emerged so far for THROTTLE seem to indicate some devious undercurrent.
General Hospital’s years of popularity has a lot to do with the devious plots spun around the characters, so Braun should feel right at home with her new primetime gig.
Journey To and From ‘General Hospital’
Over a decade passed before Braun made her way back to Port Charles last year as a new doctor on the show. ABC Soaps In Depth introduced Braun’s new character last year as Dr. Kim Nero, “the mysterious mother of the equally mysterious Oscar.”
The 47-year-old soap actress played Carley on General Hospital from 2001-2005. She received a Daytime Emmy nomination in 2004 for her role on the soap. Braun then headed over to Days of Our Lives in 2008 in the role of Ava Vitali.
She was a mob princess in her short run on that soap but the fans took notice. She won a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress for her role of Ava. Then Braun was involved in the first same-sex marriage for the daytime soaps when she joined All My Children.
It was in 2008 that Braun shared that groundbreaking portrayal with Eden Riegel, who played Bianca on the show. She returned to Days of Our Lives in 2011 as an entirely new character, Taylor Walker. That role went on for a year and then Braun was Ava once again for the 50th anniversary of Days of Our Lives.
‘General Hospital Like Home’
Braun was thrilled to be back on the soap in her new role as Kim. She lived up to all the fanfare that preceded her second time around debut on General Hospital. Now she adds a primetime series to her successful TV career.
The date for the first airing of THROTTLE has not been set yet, but it is due to debut sometime in 2019.
