As a Singer

Sarah sang her first song titled ‘Poison’ in the My Kingdom episode of the comedy show Scrubs. However, she was not given credits for her performance.

Her first credited role as a singer came in 2004 where she performed the song “That’s The Way (I Like It)” for the “My Porcelain God” episode of Scrubs.

First Film

Sarah made her theatrical film debut in the action thriller film Y2K as Myra Soljev. The film was released in Kuwait on January 26, 2000. Otherwise, it had a direct-to-video premiere in 1999 in the United Kingdom and in 2001, in the United States.

First TV Show

She made her first appearance on a TV show in 1989 at the age of 12 on the Canadian show Kidzone (also known as Kerrisdale High). She started out on the program by playing an environmental reporter.

Personal Trainer

Sarah was actively involved in sports while growing up, trying for volleyball and basketball sports teams. She has also competed in several race-walking competitions which she herself has described as being physically demanding.

Since many years, she has been a follower of the Xflowsion workout method which combines yoga, martial arts, and dance into an hour and 15 minutes workout. She has also mentioned about her aversion to hitting the gym as doing the same exercise day in day out is not her cup of tea.

The extremely lithe actress credits the workout with building her core strength and boosting her energy levels. By performing exercises like the dancing chair, sidestep kicks, warrior twist, and modified alligator push-ups, Sarah manages to achieve a total-body workout in the least amount of time. She also loves hiking with her dog Lola and working on the treadmill when she is hard pressed for time.

Sarah turned vegetarian overnight after reading the book Diet For A New America at the age of 12. As a result, the lack of proteins, which she obtained from the meat, stunted her growth as a teenager until she began consuming fish, chicken, and red meat in moderation again.

Following that period, she began eating a balanced diet with lots of fruits and veggies while also making room for decadent desserts like dark chocolates.
