October 6: Amy Jo Johnson - the "Pink Ranger" - is 41-years-old today.

Amy Jo Johnson, who was born in Dennis, Massachusetts, is best known for her roles as Kimberly Ann Hart, the first Pink Ranger of the "Power Rangers franchise" (as in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers,) and as Julie Emrick on The WB's college drama "Felicity."

On "Felicity," Amy played a college freshman who becomes the best friend to the star of The show. Her character was originally cast as a dancer, but Johnson managed to convince the producers to turn the role into that of a singer and guitarist, which eventually led Johnson to being able to play a song of her own composition, titled "Puddle of Grace." The song was added to the show's official soundtrack.
