Disney Channel has been showing Halloweentown for 15 years because it's one movie people can't get enough of, especially in October. It has turned into a Disney Channel classic.
Quints was another movie many Disney fans loved to watch. Yeah, sure, it gave me anxiety to watch Jamie deal with her five brothers and sisters, but it all worked out in the end!
Kimberly J. Brown starred in these Disney Channel original movies. TheTrueGossip.com talked with Brown about Disney Channel, her experiences while filming, and her current roles.

Kimberly J. Brown said she felt these movies were something special, "I was so excited to do them, but you never know how audiences will react until the project comes out. I think both “Marnie” and “Jaime” are very relatable characters in their own ways even though they both were dealing with some unique circumstances," Brown told TTG. "I’m so grateful and honored that people still watch them and talk about them every year."
She really enjoyed working on the set of Halloweentown. One cast member she loves is Judith Hoag. She says they bonded very quickly and still keep in touch to this day. Hoag currently plays "Tandy" on ABC's Nashville.
Brown also said working with Debbie Reynolds made for a fun day on set, "She was not only filled with wisdom and great stories, but has an amazing sense of humor and made me laugh a lot," Brown shared. "Being able to collaborate and find the little moments of comedy with Debbie in a lot of the scenes are definitely some of the times I’ll never forget."

Since the Halloweentown films are so popular, I asked Brown if she's had any interesting fan encounters, "Sometimes it’s funny when people aren’t sure where they know me from. They ask if we went to school together or if I used to work at the local Starbucks at the mall, or ask me if I’m a completely different actress from another show or movie," Brown said. "It always makes my day when they figure out who I really am and share stories of watching the movies. I also get really sweet messages on Twitter and my website all the time. I have some awesome fans!"
There are so many scenes in the Halloweentown film series. Kimberly said she couldn't pick her favorite scene, but she loved climbing the pumpkin in the first film.
Brown also loved in Halloweentown High when kids were unzipping their human costumes and coming out as creatures and monsters, "I loved the twist, how it brought up what is really “normal?” and the importance of being yourself and being proud of it!"
Since being on Disney Channel, Brown played Marah in Guiding Light, and she hasn't stopped there!
Recently, Kimberly was seen throughout the first season of the Detroit cop drama Low Winter Sun on AMC, "Unfortunately it will not be coming back for a second season this year, so it’s on to some new projects!"
