“My Life Ingredients: A Little Dreaming, a Bit of Scheming and a Dash of Make-Believing.”
Sara’s father was born in Masjed Soleyman and grew up in Ahvaz, Iran. He moved to the United States in 1974 where he met her mom. Much of his family still lives in Karaj where Sara hopes to visit in the next year or two.
Sara was born in Moore, OK and lived there until her family moved to Orlando, FL when she was 7 years old.
Although she graduated from Florida State University with a degree in Marketing, it wasn’t until 2006 when she stepped onto her first film set in Atlanta, GA as an extra on “We Are Marshall” that she realized acting was her true passion.
Sara cut her teeth in the modeling world booking print and commercial work in Atlanta before she moved to Los Angeles in 2009. Since then she has trained in the Meisner Technique and has booked roles in short films, television, and features – most notably GREY’S ANATOMY, GENERAL HOSPITAL, TEN YEARS, and ANOTHER TIME.
While her background is in dramatic acting, Sara finds herself enjoying comedic work and pushing out of her comfort zone.
She is honored to have been a member of the Screen Actor’s Guild since 2011 and would love to perform on stage one day, as well.
Sara is very proud of her Persian heritage and has been studying Farsi for years to become more fluent.
When she’s not working, Sara is passionate about animal rights and tries to surround herself with as many dogs as she can find.
