Kimberly Brown: Career and Fame
Beginning her acting on Broadway, she had begun appearing in shows when she was only 9 years old. Amongst these shows include: Adoring the Sun, John Guare’s 4 Baboons Adoring the Sun, and Les Miserables. In Les Miserables, she starred as singing young Cossette. When she was 11, she was modeling for Ford Models. It was also at this age she earned her 1st and only Emmy nomination for her role of Marah Lewis on the show Guiding Light. When she was 13, she was cast for her role in Halloweentown.
Halloweentown is the story of all sorts of fantastical beings: witches and warlocks, vampires and werewolves, etc, and how they separated themselves from humans to avoid extinction and now live in an alternate universe. She played Marnie Piper, with none other than Debbie Reynolds as her grandmother. When she was replaced by Sara Paxton in the 4th part of the movie, fans weren’t too happy. Some fans even said that they are just going to behave like the 4th installment never happened. Such was the love for Marnie, aka Kimberley.
She was also seen as Shana Taylor in the show “Low Winter Sun.” Other than Halloweentown, she also starred in other Disney Channel ventures, such as the 2000 movie named Quints. In 1999, she had also starred in the movie “Tumbleweeds.” Recently. she has revealed that she is a part of the cast of the General Hospital. The best way to describe General Hospital is to say that it is the longest-running soap opera in US History.

Who is Kimberly Brown Dating?
Back in the summer of 2018, Kimberly Brown gave the Halloweentown fans a big surprise! She literally left them all “shooketh” when she posted a picture of kissing her co-star from Halloweentown II, Daniel Kountz. This was done in honor of International Kissing Day. Anyway, the two had previously shared pictures together, but this announcement pulled the ground off the feet of the fans – no one had expected this. In the Halloweentown movies, Marnie and Kal (played by Daniel) were antagonists! How cute is it that they got together – I cannot still get over this.
In a statement, she said how she and Daniel had been in touch for a very long while. Since they hadn’t seen each other for a long time, they decided to meet up together and create a few comedy sessions for her YouTube. They even made a short film for the 20th anniversary of the original movie. Daniel and Kimberly’s first video together dates back to 2016. The happy couple has shared a lot of pictures of them together: trips, weddings, and Halloweens. In spite of the general fear that surrounds making a relationship public, Kimberly cares about how much her fans care about Kal and Marnie. The couple is still dating; whether they are engaged or not is not known.
