1My fondest memory of Power Rangers was just being a kid and hanging out with the cast and crew. We had such a great time on and off set. We were like a family. Lots of very fun parties and laughs.
2[on the question if she likes behind the scenes work in oppose to acting] Yes, I do. I feel more comfortable behind the camera for some reason. I think it's where I was meant to be. The 20 years I spent in front of the camera has been the best training ground on so many levels for me. I do still enjoy acting, but my heart is in writing and directing.
3[Being asked if she would make a cameo in any of the upcoming Power Rangers films] I did hear about this and would absolutely do a cameo in these films if I were asked. What fun would that be!
4[on asking if she kept any props from her time on the Power Rangers show] I wish I did!! Would come in handy right now with our Indiegogo campaign for my first feature film The Space Between. Ah well...
5[on her transition from kids shows to drama shows] I think I just grew up. At a certain point I'm just not a kid anymore. But boy did I ride that out! I was 28 years old when I played Julie Emrick on Felicity. Love that!!
6My mom taught me to go after my dreams. I have this faith in myself that I must have gotten from her. I believe I can do anything. If I decide I want to be a doctor tomorrow, I'm going to be a doctor. Amy Jo Johnson, discussing memories of her mother; Teen People, December 1999


1She is left-handed.
2Her maternal grandfather was a Portuguese immigrant, from the Azores. Her other ancestry is English, and a smaller amount of French-Canadian.
3Became a Canadian Citizen in June 2015. Now has dual citizenship.
4Bears such as strong resemblance to fellow actress Jennifer Garner, fans often confuse the two, and whenever this happens, Johnson takes it in stride and sometimes signs autographs as Garner if asked for one.
5Gave birth at age 38, to her 1st child, a daughter named Francesca Christine Giner, on December 1, 2008 at 9:09 p.m., weighing 7 lbs., 1 oz. Her middle name honors Amy's late mother. Child's father is her fiancé (now husband) Olivier Giner.

19She cites the main reason for her departure from Felicity (1998) in 2000 was that she needed to grieve for her mother. Her mother had died two years previously and she felt that being on such a prominent show hadn't given her the time or space to do so.
20Wrote story 'Memories of My Mother' in the book 'Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul on Tough Stuff'.

25August 19, 1998, her mother, Christine, died of uterine cancer, with which she had struggled for ten months. In January 1998, she won the role of Julie Emrick on Felicity (1998) but considered turning it down to be with her mother, during her last days.
