Then: Before landing her role on Halloweentown, Kimberly J. Brown found success as a child model and on the soap opera Guiding Light, which earned her a Daytime Emmy nomination. However, Kimberly is still best known for playing 13-year-old witch Marnie Piper opposite film legend Debbie Reynolds in Disney Channel’s Halloweentown.
Brown portrayed Marnie in three of the four Halloweentown films, including Halloweentown, Halloweentown II: Kalabar’s Revenge and Halloweentown High.
Now: Following her success in the Halloweentown films, Kimberly continued acting and landed roles in Be Cool, Low Winter Sun and other projects. Per her IMDB page, Kimberly is currently in pre-production for Abducted?, a thriller that lists Billy Ray Cyrus as a co-star. She also plays Nurse Chloe Jennings (a.k.a. Marie Hopkins) on General Hospital.
Not to mention, after receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in business, Kimberly and a friend launched an Etsy shop, which features Halloweentown-centric goods. Oh, and let’s not forget about the children’s book she wrote with Diane Yslas, titled Poppin’s Pumpkin Patch Parade.
As for her personal life? Kimberly got engaged to Daniel Kountz, a.k.a. Kal, her nemesis in Halloweentown II, in June 2022, with their magical love story delighting the franchise’s fanbase.
“It’s been pretty fun getting to watch the fans’ reactions to it over the years,” Kimberly exclusively told E! News in 2021 in their first joint interview as a couple. “It cracks us up.”
