see how great twitter is though! think how long it would have taken to go viral if we didnt hear it directly from her at the same time! now about the news... really sad. they really brought her to a place there was no coming back from. really... what is wrong with these writers???? is this all residue from those scab writers during the strike?

Appreciate the actress. Hate the character. I PRAY they do not recast or have her be pregnant when she dies.

Losing SJB is a loss for the show regardless of having painted the character into a corner.

Good for her. Bummer for us.

Sarah Brown leaving GH.. two words... THANK GOD!

I think Sarah Brown is the best actress on the show. I can't watch anybody else when she's on screen. That said, I'm not going to miss her character AT ALL.

Melissa- she might have been introduced during the strike, but Guza was back in charge when Michael was shot. That fustercluck was all his doing, and Guza wasn't talented enough to get her out of that badly painted corner.

Love Sarah Brown, she is awesome to watch, so much fire, energy and emotion!

Great talent horrid character development. I know that she wasn't thrilled with how the character was written either.

You all know I love Sarah, always have. I think she's an amazing actress. Claudia was doomed from the day she ordered the ill fated hit on Sonny though. It's terrible the corners they write characters into.
Sarah will get plenty of work,I'll follow her around but I will miss her energy on GH.
I do hope they kill off Claudia in a wonderfully dramatic way though. Don't wimp out on us..or her.

Sorry to lose such a good actress.Anyone who can make us hate a character this much has to be good...but the character is just unredeamable. Guess SJB and the powers that be couldn't come to an agreement as to Claudia's direction. Now the question is how does she leave? Walking away doesn't make any sense, but...If she is killed, it makes Sonny free for Olivia. Personally, I think Daddy Z will off her. And ironically, she could take him out at the same time. Johnny could chew some scenery big time. Of course Jerry is still in the works too!Or Michael? Carley? Jax? so many possibilities... oooo it boggles the mind at the possibilities for all concerned...cannot wait! And thank you, SJB, it was great seeing you again.

Sarah Brown is such a class act. She did as she was told, then said "enough". If anyone at ABCD thinks the character can be recast, they are so beyond wrong! There are some shoes that can not be filled. God bless her independence.

Now my greatest fear is that, for whatever reason, Brandon Barash becomes a casualty as Guza, in his rage over her leaving, destroys all the Zacharas.

Everyone keeps saying she has been written into a corner, but it is absolutly not true!

What if we found out that Anthony was the one who shot Michael and out of plain cruelty has allowed here to take the blame? I would rather see Olivia go than Claudia.

melissa said...

thanks skee. i really couldnt remember who wrote the michael gets shot stuff. i rember guza blaming the writers strike on something. i know everyone seems glad she is leaving, but i will miss her!

I am sad to see Sarah Brown leave GH. But i think it is time for Claudia to find another home.Maybe they could find another part for Sarah to play on GH.A good Girl. Best wishes to you Sarah. Take Care.

I never liked Sarah Brown, I'm thrilled she's leaving and I agree, she should at least take Sam with her when she goes. They'll probably do something heroic and have her die trying to save Sonny from her father. Quite honestly, I'm sick of the "Sonny & Carly" show and wish they would be done with the mob stories and go back to the WSB stories.

Thank heavens! I don't know when I have dispised a character as much as I hate Claudia. She has NO redeeming qualities. And WAY too much air time, since she is a character repugnant to watch.

Although I like SJB, Claudia is pretty terrible. I'd actually be pretty happy if her and Sonny died in car bomb TOGETHER!

As much as I like the actress, I anbsolutely hate the character, and am glad to see Claudia come to an end. I hope they kill her off tho, so there is not a chance of her coming back (what am I saying - this is a soap - of course if she is dead she can come back!!). Maybe Anthony will off her!

Stephanie said...

I will be sad to see Sarah go, I have really enjoyed her. I do not think they should recast Claudia, just let it go. Sad to see her go though =(

Stephanie said...

Maybe now that SJB is leaving they can bring Kate back onto the canvas as a ruthless magazine editor and not some accessory to Sonny... I like Kate seperate from Sonny maybe hook her up with Dr Matt hehe

I can only assume she'll be blown up or go out in a hail of bullets. Guza can't just let someone go off happily into the sunset.
I like the actress very much and have seen her in a lot of other projects. She's a very good actress. If she had been brought back to GH as anything but another mob figure involved with Sonny the character may have had more appeal. The last thing show needed (or needs) is another gangster. I wish her good luck.
I can't use the google thing, either, and have to post as anonymous. I'm cyndib, haiku from the old days of wubs.

Love her or hate her...she is the only woman with cahonas enough to slap Bruce Weitz!

So sad to lose such an awesome talent because the Emmy award-winning writers couldn't provide her with a character that could have any longevity or redemption. I wish Sarah the best of luck beacause she deserves much better than this.

I don't blame Sarah for leaving (considering how much we complain about as fans/esp about Guza)...I'm sure she knows alot more of what is & isn't going on behind GH than we do. I'm sure (maybe?) this wasn't as fun of an experience as it was her first time around as Carly. (Plus she won 3 emmeys too). She is a great actress & I wished they hadn't put the character in such a horrible light. Its a shame cause I was excited when I heard she was returning to GH. I hated when she left GH the first time cause it took me sometime to warm up to Tamra Braun as Carly (I did--but it took awhile)...anyway...I do wish her the best of everything...I'm sure she'll find great work someplace. (personally, I liked her hair blond not black even if it is her original hair color....).....Good Luck Sarah....I'll miss you as the actress but just not Claudia....

QueenPeng said...

SJB is an excellent actress, sorry to see her go.(I have another actress in mind whose character that should be killed off.) I agree that Claudia was a poorly developed character. Sarah did the best that she could with the soggy writing that was given to her. I wish her well in her future projects. Good luck, Sarah
