Biography

Amy Jo Johnson (born October 6, 1970) is an American actress, singer-songwriter and musician. She is perhaps best known for her role as Kimberly Hart, the first Pink Ranger of the Power Rangers franchise in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

At the age of eighteen, after graduating from Dennis Yarmouth Regional High School, Johnson left Cape Cod and moved to New York City in order to pursue her acting career. She attended the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute and the American Musical and Acting Academy. When Johnson felt comfortable with her skills, she left for Los Angeles to audition for her first part.

Johnson's first role was also her most notable to date, as Kimberly Ann Hart, the Pink Ranger, in the 1993 series Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Her gymnastics background was a clear advantage for her in fight scenes, and the Hart character was also an accomplished gymnast like herself. Her martial arts skills were taught to her by many choreographers in the studio. The series achieved unexpected success and Johnson had a fair share of media exposure, both as the character and as herself. After she left the series in 1995, Johnson went on to star in the made-for-TV Disney Channel film Susie Q in 1996. That same year, she guest-starred alongside Wally Wingert in the Saved by the Bell: The New Class episode "Backstage Pass" as Linda. In 1997, she participated in NBC's adaptation of Lois Duncan's novel Killing Mr. Griffin and also played a bulimic gymnast in the movie Perfect Body. She also reprised her role as Kimberly Hart alongside Austin St. John as Jason Lee Scott in Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie, a 1997 movie in which her character was sacrificed in a volcano to Divatox's fiancee Maligore and resurrected as evil. In the I Love the '90s 1993 special, Johnson states that being the Pink Power Ranger is something she would never live down.

In 2006, Johnson co-starred in Magma: Volcanic Disaster, a Sci-Fi Channel original made for TV movie. She played a college student who begged to go on an expedition. Johnson has also taken roles on ABC Family's original show Wildfire as famous jockey Tina Sharp, and appeared in the pilot episode of What About Brian. She has also taken on roles from two new independent films, "Veritas, Prince of Truth" and "The Islander". Most recently, Amy continued her run on What About Brian as Karen, who is Brian's annoying girlfriend.

She was not a guest at the Power Morphicon in June 2007. However, a few of her former castmates and many Power Rangers fans attending the convention frequently mentioned her, and several video clips featured her as her character, Kimberly, and as herself.
