General Hospital Casting Coup ~ Sarah Brown Returns

User Rating: / 0
After years away from Port Charles, fan favorite, Sarah Joy Brown is heading home


Sarah Joy Brown (Angela, General Hospital)Sarah Joy Brown is returning to the soap that gave her career a jolt - General Hospital. But there's a twist.  According to insiders, the Emmy-winning actress will not assume the role of Carly which she originated back in 1996 and is now played by Laura Wright. 

Since leaving GH in 2001, Brown has continually found work for herself.  Some may recognize her from a one year stint as Julia on As the World Turns beginning in 2004.  Many remember Brown from her many guest appearances in prime-time, including "The Closer," "Cold Case," and "The Perfect Husband: The Laci Peterson Story."  Brown also enjoyed a venture into film with her role as Constance in "Big Momma's House" in 2006. 

Regarding her return to General Hospital, however, the question is if she's not Carly, then who the heck is she?  Will anyone recognize that familiar face?  Sounds like Head Writer Robert Guza has a few surprises up his sleeve once the new year kicks off! 

Those close to the General Hospital set tell Soapdom that Brown is expected to play a rival mob boss. In addition, the powers that be are also considering pairing her character with Jason (Steve Burton).  Guess Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) is out of the picture!

More specifically, here's what we know so far:

Brown will be playing Angela Zacharra, Anthony's daughter and Johnny's sister. Her first scene will be her showing up at Sonny's to talk, but finds Jason instead. We've learned that Brown's Angela is calling upon the "Zacchara" rivals because she wants to help them take control of her father's territory.  Why the treachery?  Brown's Angela loves her brother Johnny but hates Trevor. The icing on the cake is that Angela will also have a past with Ric.

General Hospital, although a tad tight lipped, has confirmed that Brown is indeed returning to GH.  It should be noted that Brown also makes mention of her return to General Hospital on her official website.

Look for the actress to first air as Angela in January 2008.  We can't help wonder if she'll have sparks with Sonny. Stay tuned.

Past Blast

Soapers ~ a movement, a philosophy, a new book

When ABC announced the cancellation of long time fan favorite soap operas All My Children and One Life to Live in the spring of 2011, all havoc broke loose. Passionate fans took to the internet, boycotted ABC's advertisers, called for the firing of then ABC Daytime head, Brian Frons (who spearheaded the cancellations), picketed the studio, did anything and everything they possibly could to let the network know just how unhappy they were with the network's decision to dump their continuing stories for the more cost efficient lifestyle and talk shows that were to replace the soaps.

One such loyal fan, Flo DiBona, has chronicled the events of this tumultuous time in her new book, Soapers.
