Bella Book Productions and Open Books Productions announced today that former “Days of our Lives” and “General Hospital” actress, Sarah Joy Brown, has joined the cast of the webs series “Beacon Hill,” which follows the political world in Boston, Massachusetts. Filming is set to begin later this fall in and around Boston.

Brown, who portrayed the roles of Madison James on “DAYS” and Carly Corinthos/Claudia Zacchara on “GH,” will take on the role of state representative Katherine Wesley on “Hill.” The character is described as a “rising star in the Democratic Party, despite her family’s long history as staunch Republicans. Senator [William] Preston’s stroke may give her a chance at a larger prize, but Sara’s [Preston] return could make her doubt her next step.” The roles of Senator Preston and Sara Preston have yet to be cast. In addition to her stints on “DAYS” and “GH,” Brown had roles on various primetime series as well as stints on “As The World Turns” and “The Bold and the Beautiful.”

The “Hill” cast also includes Crystal Chappell (“Days of our Lives,” “Guiding Light” and “One Life to Live”) as Claire Preston along with Louise Sorel as Emily Tanner (“Days of our Lives”). The series is being written by Linda Hill and Emma Ryan.

    I was hoping that she would replace Michelle Stafford as Phyllis on Y&R. She played Claudia Zacharra very well.
