Amy Jo Johnson (born October 6, 1970) is an American actress, singer/songwriter and musician. She played Kimberly Hart, the Pink Ranger, in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. She also plays the feature film incarnation of the same character in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie. Johnson is also well known for playing Julie Emrick on The WB's college drama Felicity, where she started her music carrer and released her first single called Puddle Of Grace. She is also known for playing the rookie cop Stacy Reynolds on the Lifetime police drama The Division, and the champion jockey Tina Sharp on the TV drama Wildfire. Beginning in 2008, Johnson became one of the stars of the Canadian hit series Flashpoint. For her starring role as SRU negotiator Jules Callaghan on Flashpoint, she was nominated for the 2009 Gemini Awards for Best Performance by an Actress in a Continuing Leading Dramatic Role.
Amy Jo Johnson actually had a gymnast career prior to Power Rangers, but it ended after she chipped the bone in one of her elbows. This is a complete reversal of Kimberly - was originally a Power Ranger, but left to pursue a gymnast career.
She wrote the story, 'Memories of My Mother' in the book 'Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul on Tough Stuff'.
She shares her name with a famous British aviator called Amy Johnson who was piloted during World War II.
In a recent interview conducted by NoPinkSpandex.com, it seems that Amy is finally coming to grips with her work on Power Rangers, because she is laughing and remembering fond memories of everyone she worked with.  This is in sharp contrast to what she said on I Love the 90s: 1993, in which stated that being on the show as Kimberly was something that she will never be able to live down, which was later implied by her in the later interview to be something she shouldn't have said. This is similar to actors Jaleel White and Paul Reubens, who suffered from typecasting themselves because they were so tightly defined by the characters that they created, but they too came to terms with it years later.
In this same interview, Amy Jo reveals that like Kimberly and her friendship with Trini, she and Thuy Trang were very close friends. She related a story about how the two had a sleepover, and the morning after an earthquake hit. They were both called into work the same morning.
In a later No Pink Spandex interview, conducted in 2013, Amy Jo states that she would have loved to come back to reprise her role as Kimberly for Super Megaforce.
