Heavy in the game, Kimberly J. Brown was a veteran by the time she stepped onto the set of Halloweentown. By age 9, she'd played Cosette in a stage rendition of the classic musical Les Miserables. In addition to playing Marnie Piper many, many times, she also portrayed the third incarnation of Marah Lewis, a character from the CBS soap opera Guiding Light. It was a good version. —RS
