HomeTagsComings & GoingsWho Will Sarah Brown Play on Days of Our Lives?! Jamey Giddens July 19, 2011 Comings & Goings, Days of Our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful 62 Comments Soap Opera Digest just tweeted that Sarah Brown has snagged a role on Days of Our Lives! No word on who the Daytime Emmy winner will be playing. All I can say is I hope the character has the surname Brady, Horton, DiMera, Reed, Kiriakis, Roberts or Carver (What? It could happen!), because the last thing Salem needs is another new, unconnected character, even one played by a soap legend. Photo by PR Photos 62 Responses appleridge July 19, 2011 I second that AC, Sarah Horton Log in to Reply wiggum July 19, 2011 Damn you Alistair! You beat me to it! I was gonna say Sarah also :-0 Log in to Reply AlistairCrane July 19, 2011 Sarah Horton. I don’t like the idea of Days bringing on ANOTHER ex-Carly Roberts when the last one just failed so horribly. And there is something about Sarah Brown that just irks me. I liked her on VR Troopers but that was it. Log in to Reply Soap_Stud July 19, 2011 Sarah would be great. Salem could also use a female DiMera. Log in to Reply AlistairCrane July 19, 2011 I can’t see her being a Brady—the only female Bradys not on the show are Jeannie, Stephanie and Cassie, and Sarah Brown is too old for those roles. There aren’t any female DiMeras out there except for Kristen Blake, and she’s too young for that role. For someone born in 1975, she is in the perfect age range for Sarah Horton, who was born in 1981 but last played by someone born in 1974. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 July 19, 2011 I don’t want to see Sarah Brown playing some boring heroine. She is best suited for bad girl roles. I don’t remember much about the Sarah Horton character, but if she does bring her on, she can be a vixen, and we can show Maggie trying to rehabilitate her and get her to change her ways. And I LOVE Sarah Brown to death. I don’t want to see DAYS waste her talents like Brad Bell did on B&B. I hope these new writers have something interesting in store for her. Log in to Reply MichaelKnight July 19, 2011 Taylor recast w/ yet another GH/Carley? 3rd times the charm. Log in to Reply sodsince16 July 19, 2011 I thought that she would play Ava, Tamara Braun’s old part on Days, it would be funny Log in to Reply AlistairCrane July 19, 2011 Sarah Horton hasn’t been seen since 1991, so she is essentially a blank slate. She could be a heroine or a bitch. FYI: Sarah used to be friends with Carrie—what if she’s back to try to break up Carrie and Austin?! Log in to Reply days4ever July 19, 2011 Please let her be Sarah Horton! If not Sarah then maybe a very much alive Emily Hudson (Rafe’s ex). Log in to Reply watchingallday July 19, 2011 She should come back from Asia with Lucas as his girlfriend/fiance. Put her in a story battling Sami, and maybe a quadrangle w/her/Sami/Rafe/Lucas. I cannot care about any of this casting until I hear Bryan Datillo is coming back. Log in to Reply days4ever July 19, 2011 Also her name says it all, she is destined to play Sarah Horton! Log in to Reply SoapArmageddon July 19, 2011 According to Ken Corday (whose word is worth about as much as an empty tube of toothpaste), the show will renew its focus on its core families. If that is true, then I do not expect her to be a Taylor recast or someone with no ties to Salem. “Soap legend”? I only know Sarah Brown’s work from ATWT where she played a misconceived, poorly defined plot-device of a character, Julia Larrabee. Maybe she was more impressive on GH, but on ATWT I didn’t see anything special. Log in to Reply dannyro July 19, 2011 Sarah Horton is my guess too. Another fun possibility would be Shane’s daughter Eve Donovan. She used to be married to Jack, was an awesomely conniving vixen, and would give Jack and Jennifer something to do besides Jack trying once again to prove his worthiness to Jennifer. Log in to Reply josser July 19, 2011 AlastairCrane, So what if Sarah Brown played Carly? What does that have to do with her being a talented actress? Brown has appeared ATWT and B&B. Additionally, she had a recurring role on Cold Case. She’s a good actress. That’s all that matters. Log in to Reply maxsmom July 19, 2011 Days is the only soap currently airing that I haven’t ever watched and even my beloved Sarah J. Brown cant make me. I followed her to ATWT and loved her but hated the storyline and Maura West’s Carly. I had tried and dismissed B&B years before due to their constant and unending focus on Brooke, who I liked, and Ridge who I didn’t. B&B is a half hour show with an hour show sized cast, I knew SJB would be wasted. So, even if I were minutely interested in DOOL and I am not, I am not taking the bait. Log in to Reply Y2Jin99 July 19, 2011 Wow how depressing that another great actress goes to Days. Hopefully she hates it or is let go really fast like Tamara and get a better gig. I was hoping that she can return as Claudia on GH and that Franco staged the body found in the explosion. I don’t even remember a Sarah Horton. Sounds like an ancient character like Mickey Horton. Who ware her parents if she isn’t that old? Log in to Reply Soap_Stud July 19, 2011 Oh, now, Stefano could always have a daughter out there…lol…or maybe Tony does. LOL Log in to Reply Camp is not a sustainable model July 19, 2011 Lexie’s a female Dimera. They just have her acting like a goody goody Carver. But if she is going to join Days she needs to a kick-ass Dimera. Because like Alstonboy said Sarah is made for playing a villainous type. Log in to Reply Y2Jin99 July 19, 2011 SaraH horton Just looked her up on wikipedia. Mickey is dead. Neil hasn’t been seen in years if his character was still alive when he left? Maggie doesn’t need a daughter. Hope she plays someone else. How about Billie Reed since Austin is returning? Log in to Reply LizzieVee July 19, 2011 Oh, man, I couldn’t stand her on GH both times. Someone asked if Neil was alive when he left the show and yes, he was. Also, Stefano had a daughter back in the 80’s, Renee, who was killed by the Salem Strangler. So, Lexie is not his only daughter, though he doesn’t talk about Renee at all. I hope she’s not as over powering in this show as she was on GH. Log in to Reply jlafferty23 July 19, 2011 Good for Sarah Brown!! I love her. Can’t wait to see who she plays. Log in to Reply AlistairCrane July 19, 2011 [quote=josstheguy] She’s a good actress. That’s all that matters.[/quote] ————- Wrong. She’s not very good. I cannot STAND her and only ever enjoyed her on VR Troopers. Log in to Reply Camp is not a sustainable model July 19, 2011 @:LizzieVee There is also Megan Hathaway she is deceased as well. From the image Sarah Brown looks like she could play her. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Megan_Hathaway.jpg As the story goes: “Megan Hathaway comes to Salem in 1984 with her adopted father Maxwell Hathaway, though she is secretly the daughter of Stefano DiMera. Megan wants her old boyfriend Bo back, and stops at nothing to have him. Megan dupes Bo into believing she has a child with him that she gave up for adoption. In 1985, Megan plots to kill Hope by electrocuting her in a hot tub at Chris’ health club, The Body Connection. Megan’s plan backfires when she overhears Larry Welch talking to a Russian contact about the 3 prisms Larry’s father had invented. When Larry finds Megan spying on him they fight, and Larry ends up killing Megan. Larry dumps her body in a hot tub, and Megan is found by Hope, who becomes the prime suspect in her murder.” What if she is not really dead and came back? There would be potential use her as nemesis for Hope.

[/quote] ———- I know all about Stefano’s daughters and how many he has, but Kristen Blake is the only one alive and not currently in play. Log in to Reply AlistairCrane July 19, 2011 Y2Jin99, totally disagree. Maggie absolutely needs a daughter in town. She spends all her time giving advice to randoms like Melanie when in reality she should be supporting Melissa and Sarah. Personally I would support a Sarah/Lucas/Sami triangle if Lucas returns, since not only are he and Sarah NOT blood-related, he has never even met her. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 July 19, 2011 David– Sarah has never won in the Lead Actress category. She is one of the few actresses, along with Debbi Morgan, to be nominated in all three categories, but she’s only won as Younger Lead Actress and Supporting Actress. Log in to Reply giogio July 19, 2011 Alister – you really will enjoy Sarah. Just you wait and see. You will be very happy with her, she’s an excellent actress. Log in to Reply Camp is not a sustainable model July 19, 2011 @AlistairCrane: Sarah has Daytime 3 Emmy Awards in the Supporting and Younger (2 awards) categories and that was back when they actually nominated talented actors. Enough said! Log in to Reply soapjunkie88 July 19, 2011 I hope she plays Sarah Horton. I’d like to see a Carrie/Austin/Sarah triangle. Sarah Brown is an excellent actress IMO. I hope DAYS uses her well and better than Brad Bell did on B&B. Log in to Reply GHdoolFan July 19, 2011 I’m not gonna knock this hiring. I LOVE it. I really think she will be Sarah Horton and I just hope they don’t bring her in with an obvious love interest in mind. She needs to chem test with all of the leading man and not be drooling over EJ instantly or she will be another fail. If she isn’t Sarah Horton, I too hope that she is part of the show’s history and not some random, BUT I will be happy to have her on DOOL either way. Log in to Reply Camp is not a sustainable model July 19, 2011 @alstonboy4315: Corrected it. Thanks for the reminder! Sarah is an actor’s actor. You can see she study the craft. By the way no actress from Passions ever got a Emmy nomination. Log in to Reply AlistairCrane July 19, 2011 No, giogio. The fact is, I HAVE seen Sarah and I don’t like her (except on VR Troopers). She overacts and is too much—her performances are off-putting. She comes off too strong. And it was HER Carly who broke up Bobbie and Tony and I will never forget that. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 July 19, 2011 David– Hate to correct you again. Juliet Mills from “Passions” got nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in 2005, but she lost to Erika Slezak. That was the only year that there was a record-breaking EIGHT actresses in the Lead Actress category. Kim Zimmer Nancy Lee Grahn Martha Byrne Kassie DePaiva Susan Flannery Michelle Stafford Juliet Mills Erika Slezak Log in to Reply AlistairCrane July 19, 2011 Hahaha thanks Alstonboy, I love it when David gets owned!! Log in to Reply giogio July 19, 2011 You know what guys Alistair is right about the over-acting. Log in to Reply Camp is not a sustainable model July 20, 2011 @alstonboy4315: I was just about to correct to say only her. Log in to Reply THEBEST July 20, 2011 I love Sarah to pieces, but DAYS is doing too much… Log in to Reply GHdoolFan July 20, 2011 Okay so she is playing Madison James. A powerful CEO that hires Sami as a protege. Is in Brady’s orbit, and battles with Kate…To me this is very exciting for a few reasons. She is a powerful woman on DAYS (and in soaps) for one. Her going head to head with Kate for title of Queen Bitch is gonna be good stuff. And a corporate war on DAYS? Wow. These new writers are winning me over very fast. I wish she was Sarah Horton. Why couldn’t Sarah Horton have been a successful business woman that is too stuck up to associate with the Hortons? Oh well! Not tied to the canvas as of right now is the only knock I have on this one. Very excited. Log in to Reply GHfan-4now July 20, 2011 Sarah Horton works… that said, I will be GLAD when they get the writing together for the usual suspects first, because Hackley indeed did a fuggin HACKJOB!

Plus, Sami had a job? LOL! Are you sure this is true? Not sure about this casting. Will they fire someone else to pay for her? Log in to Reply GHdoolFan July 20, 2011 There is an “EXCLUSIVE” article on ew.com. It says General Hospital bad girl joining DAYS or something like that. I didn’t want to link because I don’t think EW deserves credit for anything after their Emmy’s bullshit. Log in to Reply Soap_Stud July 20, 2011 http://insidetv.ew.com/2011/07/19/days-of-our-lives-2/ I linked it. Log in to Reply Soap_Stud July 20, 2011 Oops..I forgot about the emmy drama and DC…sorry guys! Log in to Reply snags July 20, 2011 Yeah it would be funny and ridiculous if she were to be a recast of Taylor, but she too would be a bad fit. Natalia played Taylor the best although I like Tamara Braun the best. Natalia can play victim. Tamara and Sarah cannot play the victim. I’m not a Sarah Brown fan. But I think she could be Sarah Horton because she would give Maggie more to play with and she is a character that has ties but hasn’t been utilized much that she could be whatever the show needs at the moment. Log in to Reply Soap_fan_forever July 20, 2011 Oh please tell me it’s not true :p I am know i’m like one of the only ones…but I really really dislike her acting…ugg…plus days doesn’t need any more new characters or recasted old ones.

And I agree that Maggie needs a daughter back but I’d like it to be Melissa. Log in to Reply LizzieVee July 20, 2011 Also, i have to agree, while Sarah is a good actress, she does come across very strong and I never liked that when she was on Gh both time. Didn’t see her on BB. Anyway, I just hope she tones it down lots of notches. Log in to Reply AlistairCrane July 20, 2011 [quote=LizzieVee] but, if I recall correctly, she’s adopted, isn’t she, so she’s not true DiMera blood. [/quote] ———————– What the hell does that have to do with anything?! Kristen is Stefano’s daughter regardless of DNA. I am disappointed SJB is playing a brand new character. That’s so NOT what we need! Sarah could have been a powerful CEO. Log in to Reply keanna July 20, 2011 I hope it is Sarah Horton, she hasn’t been seen years, so I agree that would be a blank canvas for Sarah B. Log in to Reply Simple C July 20, 2011 I think DAYS has Jennifer Bransford on speed dial too. Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott July 20, 2011 I hope Marlene and Darrell are smart enough to root her in with one of the families. No rudderless character crap. A Sarah Horton would be great. Log in to Reply jphelps July 20, 2011 I love Sarah but come on another former Carly. I adored her Carly she was my fave, but part of what I liked abour her Carly was the fact she was a underdog and scrapper. I also can’t see her as a CEO type but I hope to be proven wrong because I love her. But she can overact and chew scenery. As long as she’s not on non stop and they keep her away from the other scene chewers on Days I expect she’ll be fine. As far as her not being Sarah Horton I have no clue. Maybe they intend on Sarah coming back as more of a heroine/good girl type. I guess that fits more with who Maggie is. She could be a pediatrician or surgeon after they get rid of Daniel. Log in to Reply SoapArmageddon July 20, 2011 Ken Corday is a lying liar whose every other word is a lie. |( How can he say the show is going to focus on the five core families if Sarah Brown is being cast to play this Madison character in what sounds like it’s going to be an A story. Why am I not surprised? Log in to Reply jphelps July 20, 2011 We already know shes not coming on tied to any core family. So much for the Hortons getting more focus. It could also be a realtively short term role if she’s coming on as a rival to Kate and to mentor Sami. Maybe they plan on Sami taking over her CEO role at some point even if Sami never graduated from High School Log in to Reply Cyberologist July 20, 2011 She won three emmys the issue is “the writing” I’m confident she can deliver…these shows hire all these actors then the storyline sucks.

Sbu is robotic and dull and MB mumbles 90 percent of the time yet she worked opposite them as Carly and Claudia. I hate the thought of her sharing scenes with James Scott. She chews scenery and it can be tolerated at times. He just does it badly. I think she and Eric will be fine together.

For me, he’s average at best & that took years. LH carried him on Passions. I’ve never been a fan or regular viewer of GH, but for what i have I was never into MB or SBu either. I’m speaking of Sarah’s other various roles more so than GH. Character-wise I don’t want her with JS either, even though he is the best of what they’ve got in that age range I mentioned before.
