Biography

An athlete as well as an actress, Amy Jo Johnson competed worldwide as a gymnast until the age of 17. After graduating from high school in her hometown of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, she acted in community theater, enrolled in a New York drama school, and eventually moved to California to pursue her career. In 1993, Johnson scored a role that utilized her skills in both acting and gymnastics in the popular children's adventure program "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers" (Fox). The pretty and petite brown-haired actress played Kimberly, the original Pink Ranger. Always a stand-out member of the ensemble because of her acting ability, Johnson stayed with the Power Rangers for two and a half years, hanging in through some major cast changes and starring in the 1995 summer release "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie". She left the series in 1996 and began to perform on stage, appearing in a production of "Much Ado About Nothing" at Knight Bridge Theater in Pasadena, California. 1997 saw Johnson give solid performances in the TV-movies "Killing Mr. Griffin" (NBC) and "Suzie Q" (Disney Channel) but her most impressive work was in "Perfect Body", an NBC movie about a gymnast plagued by anorexia. She returned to regular series work in 1998 on The WB's "Felicity", playing Julie Emrick, an understanding friend to the somewhat unstable titular college student. Johnson's film career was also jump-started that year with a supporting role in "Without Limits", the biopic of Olympian Steve Prefontaine. She went on to play a reluctant vampire in the independent feature "Cold Hearts" (1999).
