BREAKING: Sarah Brown Out at General Hospital?



Has the music stopped for General Hospital's Sarah Brown? According to the actress' messages on Twitter it has. Brown posted the following.

All the news that is fit to print. Claudia Zacchara has been a wild ride, every ride stops when the music ends. The Music stops mid Oct.
Its been nice being back at GH, but it's time for the Character to come to an end, at least for me. Much love :)
Have a film in the works for Nov - a lead role to die for - and we shall c what else comes up. Thank you for your support, means the world!

Brown returned to General Hospital in January of 2008 in the new role of Claudia Zacchara. Since her arrival in Port Chuck, Claudia's most notable accomplishment was being responsbile for Michael's shooting.

Maybe now Daytime Confidential's Jamey Giddens will get his dream of Sarah Brown as Victoria Newman on The Young and the Restless.

Thanks to Daisyclover for the tip!

They just wasted a very talented actress. Sad

Now, "Y&R" I hope you people know what to do. Get rid of Amelia Heinle and give Sarah Brown a nice contract.

Claudia writing was in putting her in a corner where there was no way out ....

I'm sorry I couldnt read the tweets because I was shaking with happiness! No really I love Sarah Brown (closeted VR Troopers fan here being a child of the 90's) but Claudia Z was a horrible character that was used to help break up Skate. The writing has been horrible for her and I knew when she inadvertently caused Michaels shooting that her character was one day going to be "officially dead to Sonny"

You're welcome Luke Smile And thanks GH LOVER, lol

Well, what a terrible waste!! I thought Claudia had the potential to be a kick *ss character! A strong, fierce, and dangerous chick who posed a serious threat to Sonny. That would have been awesome!! But as has been noted many times, the writing for her was all over the place.

Like GH Lover said, they wrote her into a corner. She's just become yet another revolving door villian.

I just tweeted that I'd love for there to be a Who Killed Claudia? murder mystery. But the twist would be that she actually faked her own death and no one knows it. It'll allow her to finally have a victory and it'll leave the door open for her to return.

Just hoping that in a couple of years they won't bring SJB back as a brand new character - Caren or Carlotta! lol

Great actress but let's face it - there was no going back once she ordered the hit that put Michael in the hospital.

YAY, FINALLY!
Love SJB, hate The Claw. And let's face it, SJB deserves better than this messily written character.

Yeah!!!! Character has been going downhill for awhile. Now stop the madness with Nik & Liz, don't like it.

While I'm not a General Hospital viewer, I am a Sarah Browne fan. She was wasted this last go round. I will only accept her in two roles (obviously not at the same time):

Victoria Newman, Y&R
Kelly Cramer, OLTL

Let the bidding begin...

I'm sorry to see SJB go. I liked claudia when she first came on but once they paired her with Sonny it went downhill for me. There was so much potential that Claudia could've had. At least she's on to bigger and better things.

Its comfirmed guys from soapcentral

Meanwhile, a General Hospital spokesperson confirms to soapcentral.com that Brown is, in fact, leaving the show.

"I can confirm she is leaving General Hospital," the spokesperson states. "Her departure from Port Charles will be buzz-worthy for November sweeps… Stay tuned as we move towards Claudia’s exit from the canvas."

Claudia was a terrible character, as everyone is saying, but SB was as good as she could have been. She would be a FANTASTIC Kelly Cramer or Victoria Newman! Y&R really needs to snap her up since they are alienating so many with the "blackballing" (if that's the right word) of Victoria Rowell from Genoa City. My guess is that the three actors she referenced on Twitter are Christel Khalil, Peter Bergman, and Michelle Stafford... (this was probably the wrong place for this post, sorry).

Tamara Braun deserves better than playing the character of Claudia Zacharra. In fact ... every actress does.

SB is a very talented actress but Claudia was one of the most pathetic females on daytime.

Sarah will be missed. She was the only reason I continued to watch this horrible show. Guza needs to go! She was unhappy at the fact her character would hurt kids. So good for her!
She now needs to go to Genoa City!

They canned couples for her well liked couples, but I don't blame Sarah Brown the girl is an amazing actress but the writers couldnt create a decent character for her and I dont blaim her for high tailing it.

I have to agree, what was once a chance to finally put a strong, powerful woman up against Sonny, turned into a hateful character especially after she ordered the hit on Sonny and Micheal was caught in the middle and never admitted it. This backfired on GH big time. I have been a SB fan for years (I am with you, Katiebug9624, I first saw her on VR Troopers, too) and she is a great actress, she deserves better. I think she would be a good KC on OLTL or VN on Y&R. I wish her nothing but the best.

First saw her on VR Troops too, great actress but GH couldn't write for her without giving us Carly. If they could redeem Sam, they could of redeem her too.Proofs to us that GH writers lost there creative juice.

There some rumors out there that Jason's the one that take her out
