Sarah Joy Brown (born February 18, 1975)[1] is an American actress. She is perhaps best known for originating the role of Carly Corinthos, which she portrayed on the American daytime drama General Hospital from 1996 to 2001, and which earned her three Daytime Emmy Awards. In 2008, she returned to General Hospital in a different role, Claudia Zacchara. She exited General Hospital once again in 2009 and began appearing on The Bold and the Beautiful in the newly created role of Aggie Jones.[2]


Life and career

Brown was born in Eureka, California, to David and Pamela Brown. She attended the Los Angeles County High School for Performing Arts. Her acting career began at the age of 19, when she was cast as Kaitlin Star on the syndicated children's show, VR Troopers. In 1996, she made a guest appearance in a 3-part episode of Power Rangers: Zeo playing Heather, a girl that sparks interest in Tommy Oliver (played by Jason David Frank). An article in FOX Kids Magazine claimed a member of the VR Troopers cast would be quitting the series to become a part of the Power Rangers cast, however the aforementioned Zeo three-parter is the closest anything like this ever came to happening.

In April 1996 Brown originated the role of Carly Corinthos on the American ABC soap opera General Hospital.[3] Brown "quickly became an overnight sensation" and received three Daytime Emmy Awards for her portrayal of Carly.[4] She won for Outstanding Younger Actress in 1997[5] and 1998,[6] was nominated in 1999,[7] and won again for Outstanding Supporting Actress in 2000.[8] In 2010, she received her first Daytime Emmy nomination in the Lead Actress category for her work as Claudia Zacchara. Brown appeared on the cover of Soap Opera Digest 19 times during her run in the role,[4] and won two Soap Opera Digest Awards in 1998 (Younger Lead Actress)[9] and 2000 (Favorite Actress).[10] She departed the series in April 2001.[3]

After leaving General Hospital, Brown guest-starred on many hit television series, including Crossing Jordan, Strong Medicine and Without a Trace. She returned to daytime in the role of Julia Morrisey Larrabee on As the World Turns from August 2004 to March 2005, in which she appeared in 109 episodes.

In 2004, Brown played the lead role of Kate Vignatti in the fact-based television movie The Perfect Husband: The Laci Peterson Story. She became a regular on the popular CBS crime drama Cold Case in the fall of 2005 but was let go after only a few months (she appeared in five episodes) with the series. In 2006, she starred in her first feature film, the comedy, Big Momma's House 2 and appeared in an episode of Monk the same year. Brown was most recently seen in the second season finale of The Closer and on a 2007 episode of the Fox police drama K-Ville.

Brown is a practicing convert to Judaism.[11] She has one daughter, Jordan Alexandra Judith (b. July 20, 1998); the father is Brown's ex-fiancé, Israel composer Shuki Levy (a former executive producer on VR Troopers and the Power Rangers franchise). Brown has been diagnosed with Celiac Disease.[12]

Brown returned to General Hospital on January 31, 2008 in the role of Claudia Zacchara. Brown announced on her Twitter September 16, 2009 that she would be leaving General Hospital in mid October 2009.[citation needed] Brown has also announced on her Twitter account that she would be making an appearance on the ABC's Castle (TV series)

In July 2011, numerous soap outlets confirmed that Brown would join the cast of Days of our Lives as Madison James, a successful business woman. Her first appearance was October 4, 2011. [13][14]
