Then + Now: Amy Jo Johnson from ‘Power Rangers’ and ‘Felicity’
You probably recall Amy Jo Johnson from her time as the Pink Ranger on the kids’ TV series ‘Mighty Morphin Power Rangers,’ or maybe you watched her on the WB series ‘Felicity.’ Ever wondered where she went after that?
Amy Jo Johnson parlayed her earlier gymnastics training into an acting career, starring on the kids’ series ‘Mighty Morphin Power Rangers’ from 1993 to 1995. After that, she won a role in the Disney channel remake of ‘Susie Q,’ and appeared in an episode of ‘Saved by the Bell: The New Class.’
Johnson went on to star in some made-for-TV movies before reprising her role in the ‘Power Rangers’ movies, and in 1998, Johnson landed a role on ‘Felicity,’ playing Julie opposite Keri Russell and bringing her real-life musical talents to the show — in fact, she performed a song she wrote called ‘Puddle of Grace,’ which was later added to the show’s official soundtrack.
Johnson still acts intermittently, mostly in independent films like 2011’s ‘Tiger Eyes,’ opposite Willa Holland from ‘The O.C.’ She’s also had some TV roles on shows like ‘ER,’ ‘The Division,’ ‘What About Brian,’ and ‘Flashpoint.’ Johnson contributed a song called ‘Dancing In-Between’ for the ‘Flashpoint’ soundtrack, and even won a Gemini award for the series for Best Actress in a Continuing Lead Dramatic Role.
