Sarah Brown on Beacon Hill: “Sort of Like Going Back to College When I Studied Political Science” Melodie April 15, 2014 1 Comment Before taking part in General Hospital's recent "Carlypalooza", soap mega star Sarah Brown signed on for quite the political party, by accepting a starring role in Crystal Chappell's Beacon Hill. In the ambitious online serial, Brown plays hot shot State Representative Katherine Wesley, who shares a steamy past with reporter Sara Preston (All My Children's Alicia Minshew). Does Brown notice any difference in acting on a web soap, as opposed to a daytime sudser? "No, I wouldn't say there are any differences. The acting process is not different for a web series." Brown admits there was quite the learning curve involved with becoming versed in Beacon Hill's world of political intrigue.
