Sarah started her career on stage at the early age of five in her native North East. I
She continued to be involved in many theatre and independent productions before leaving for London where she trained at The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) for three years.
While there, Sarah developed another passion: stage fighting and unarmed combat earning advanced qualifications and the coveted John Barton Prize at the lauded Prize Fights. One of her first jobs after leaving RADA was in the feature film The House of Angelo, where she was stunt cover for the leading lady and the only woman on the film’s fight team.
Sarah's first major TV role was playing Sister Karen Newburn in the BBC’s flagship drama series, Holby City. Karen was the straight-talking, no-nonsense Ward Sister, and estranged wife to Nick Jordan, played by Michael French. They battled throughout the first two series and their tempestuous relationship became one of the leading storylines.
All Sarah's TV and film roles have been both diverse and challenging, including a chain-smoking pole dancer as the lead in the film Eva, a Chief Prison Officer in the TV series In Deep, a seductive burglar in Men Of The World, and an alienated and tormented wife in the adaptation of Catherine Cookson’s period novel, Tilly Trotter.
She has also had the fantastic opportunity of working with Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant in the award-winning comedy, Extras, playing the recurring role of the make-up woman, whose name nobody can remember.
