about sarah 

Three time Emmy winning actress Sarah Brown began her acting career at the prestigious Los Angeles High School for the Performing Arts. On her nineteenth birthday, Sarah began her professional acting career when she was chosen as the series lead on the popular children's series "VR Troopers" which aired worldwide making her a household name with children everywhere.

Two short years later Sarah auditioned for a lead role in the ABC daytime series "General Hospital." In what would soon become an oft-told story, Sarah dazzled the producers with a fearless performance that instantly won her the role of tortured troublemaker Carly Benson.

The fearless audition proved to be an indicator of things to come as Sarah began a five-year journey as one of daytime TV's most memorable characters. Her work during those years (1996-2001) won her the respect of her peers, the love and loyalty of fans around the world, the acclaim of critics and an unprecedented four Emmy nominations with three Emmy wins – all before she was twenty-five.

Throughout her run on "GH," Sarah appeared on stage in productions of "Much Ado About Nothing," "The Rainmaker," and "Cyrano de Bergerac."

In April 2001, Sarah made the decision to pursue new challenges beyond daytime television. "GH" fans responded by sending tens of thousands of letters to ABC and also directly to Disney/ABC Chairman Michael Eisner pleading with him to change Sarah's mind. The outpouring of affection to keep Sarah on the show hit magazines and newspapers worldwide but ultimately Sarah held to her conviction that it was time to move on.

TV Guide, the magazine that voted Sarah "one of the finest actors" in her first year on "General Hospital," bid the twenty-six year old actress a touching farewell in May, 2001 saying "We'll miss Sarah Brown, a superb, ferocious actress of unparalleled complexity."

Delivering on the promise of TV Guide's review, Sarah spent 2002-2003 appearing on hit television series on virtually every network including, "Without a Trace," (CBS) "The Lyon's Den," (NBC) "L.A. Dragnet," (ABC) and "For the People" (Lifetime). She was also featured in recurring roles on "Mysterious Ways," (NBC/PAX) and "10-8: Officers on Duty" (ABC). Sarah co-starred in the torn from the headlines USA television movie "Perfect Husband." The film examined the controversial case of convicted killer Scott Peterson. The film aired in Febuary 2004 and boasted the highest ratings the network has ever had for a Movie of the Week.

Sarah completed a six-month run on the CBS daytime drama, "As the World Turns," in 2004-2005, playing the character of "Julia Larrabee." Also in 2005, she shot her feature film debut as "Constance" in "Big Momma's House 2" and appeared in five episodes of the CBS drama, "Cold Case." After filming two different pilots ("AMPED" for Spike TV and "Company Man" for FOX) in 2006-2007, Sarah guest starred on a two-part episode of "The Closer" (TNT) and an episode of "K-Ville," (FOX) in addition to starring in an original movie for Lifetime called "It Was One of Us," which aired in fall 2007.

In 2008, Sarah returned to "General Hospital" in the newly created role of mobster "Claudia Zacchara." She exited "General Hospital" and joined "The Bold & the Beautiful" as "Sandy Sommers/Aggie Jones" in November 2009 and then moved on to the role of "Madison James" on "Days of our Lives" in 2011.
