In a another huge casting shocker this week, the Associated Press is reporting that Sarah Brown, the exiting Claudia Zacchara of “GH” has signed a two year deal with “B&B”. Look for her to end her “GH” run on air in November and appear the very next day in her new home on “B&B” on CBS. The role is that of Sandy Sommers described as a goodhearted newcomer, who will mix it up with Nick, Bridget and Whip!
Some excepts from the story from the AP tonight are below!
“Brown, a triple Daytime Emmy winner when she played a previous character on “General Hospital,” said her contract with the serial ran through Jan. 14 and could have barred her from joining the CBS show, even though her ABC role was set to conclude.
But in a rare goodwill gesture involving a competitor, ABC agreed to release her early, said “Bold and the Beautiful” executive producer Bradley P. Bell. The show was named best drama series at this year’s Daytime Emmys.
“I was stunned. It was something really very human and very big of them,” Bell said. “They were putting the needs of the actress, who is a mother, ahead of the network’s.” He called Brown, single mom of 11-year-old Jordan, a “powerhouse actress.”
