Soap fan favorite Sarah Brown will soon make her highly-anticipated Days of Our Lives debut on October 4. In an interview with We Love Soaps she talks about her new character Madison, weighs in on the end of All My Children and previews Madison’s dynamic with Brady (Eric Martsolf).
WE LOVE SOAPS TV: Is there anything you can preview for us about Madison's storyline? I hear there's a little work, and a little play?
Sarah Brown: There's a lot of play! [She laughs] A lot of work... and let's say, in the beginning, the work and play meld together really naturally and perfectly. As time goes on, things begin to get a little more complicated in the working environment because of the attraction between Madison and Brady. At first, it's just something nobody talks about. It then becomes a giant, pink elephant in the room that we have to talk about. And it causes some friction between them...and some good friction.
Good Day LA Dishes With Alison Sweeney, Lauren Koslow, Eric Martsolf and Salem Newcomers Sarah Brown and...Nate Berkus?!By Jamey Giddens on August 01, 2011
Good Day LA was on the set of Days of Our Lives to cover the soap opera's big, September festivities and managed to run into a couple of not-so-newbies to the TV game. General Hospital superstar Sarah Brown, who was recently cast in the serial as mogulette Madison James and talk show host Nate Berkus—who is making a cameo—were both on hand, as well as DAYS' leading lady Alison Sweeney, Eric Martsolf and Lauren Koslow. I must admit, all these Salem Fall Fest teases are starting to get me pumped about DAYS again. Check out the fun interview after the jump!
Daytime has been my bread-and-butter for over nine years now, so it’s a big part of my life.I have the utmost faith in the choices I made and the work that I’m doing. People say that the soap genre is going away, and in my humble opinion I don’t believe it is. I think this is the result of networks doing some penny-pinching and trying to put in cheaper programming. In the long run, they’re going to find that canceling these soaps that have been around for decades is probably not a wise move. It looks good on paper, but the fan bases of these soap operas rival those of primetime shows.
