Soap Opera Digest has learned that Emmy winner Natalia Livingston (ex-Emily/Rebecca, GH), who just started airing three weeks ago as DAYS's Taylor, has been let go and replaced with another Emmy winner who used to call Port Charles home — Tamara Braun (ex-Ava, DAYS; ex-Carly, GH et al). Braun appeared as Ava in 2008 and took home a golden trophy for her Salem performances in 2009. She will start taping today; look for her to first air in late April. "It was decided to take the character of Taylor in a new direction," explains Co-Executive Producer Gary Tomlin. "Natalia Livingston is an amazing actress and a consummate professional. She is a class act and everyone at the studio adores her."
