A blonde-haired screen beauty whose impossible golden locks wouldn’t be out of place in a shampoo commercial and whose mischievous smile seems to shine right through the cameras, actress Sarah Carter is a model of conventional beauty; her perfect combination of talent and superior genes would make her as much a candidate for the cover of Vogue as a potential leading lady in Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters. Though it wasn’t until her teenage years that the budding actress from Winnipeg, Canada, began to exhibit an interest in show business, early roles in local productions of A Chorus Line and The Sound of Music gave testament that her talent was well in synch with her ambitions — making prospects of stardom ever more likely as she continued to hone her skills. Of course, a background in speech and debate didn’t hurt in helping the aspiring actress to appear comfortable and collected in front of a crowd, and after winning a nationwide monologue contest Carter was invited to Vancouver to meet some high-profile agents and casting directors. Television work was quick to follow, with a role as a crime fighting superhero in Los Luchadores marking her official small-screen debut. The eager starlet continued to find her footing as an actress with occasional roles in such popular television series as Undeclared, Boston Legal, and Smallville. And after appearing in such straight-to-video flicks as Wishmaster 3 and K-9: P.I., she could be seen in a substantial role in the high-profile Hollywood fright flick Final Destination 2. At this point, anyone following Carter’s career could tell that it was on the upswing, and after appearing opposite Bill Paxton and Orlando Bloom in the 2004 crime drama Haven, she continued to climb the credits with roles in both Berkeley and the sorority house comedy Pledge This!
