Biography - Sarah Douglas
sarah-douglas.com [cached]
When you hear the name "Sarah Douglas", most people immediately associate the name of the actress to her breakout role as Ursa in both Superman (1978) and Superman II (1980). And with good reason. For generations of audiences, this career-defining role helped bring in a slew of roles that took Sarah from her home-town of Stratford Upon Avon in England to the bright lights of Hollywood where she either starred in, or featured prominently, in a wide variety of high profile films and television shows, ranging from Conan The Destroyer (1984) alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger, Return of Swamp Thing (1989) with screen legend Louis Jordan, hit show Falcon Crest for 2 seasons, the sci-fi classic mini-series V: The Final Battle (1984) and fan favourites Stargate SG1, Babylon 5, Remington Steele, Magnum P.I. With an impressive body of voice work in animated projects encompassing Batman, 2012's Green Lantern, numerous Doctor Who audio stories and even a brief return to the Superman universe as Mala, Sarah Douglas is an actress with extraordinary range.
Being raised in a theatrical town no doubt inspired the young Sarah Douglas to pursue an acting career. Having attended the prestigious Rose Bruford training school and working with the National Youth Theatre, Sarah quickly became a rising star and soon found herself working on her first feature The Final Programme (1973), or known to American audiences as The Last Days of Man on Earth. Having this initial success quickly led to further career exposure and soon she became a familiar face to British tv audiences. 1976 brought Sarah's first lead role, starring in The Brute, a film that became something of a talking point, owing to its graphic portrayal of domestic violence. Despite the controversy surrounding the film and its depiction of abuse, Sarah's career continued to climb rapidly and soon she found herself surrounded by what the actress, in her usual sense of playful humour, affectionately refers to as "cardboard dinosaurs…..or half of one, as we could only afford the tail". The People That Time Forgot (1977) opened and immediately established itself as a cult favourite film, repeatedly shown on American television networks and British channels to this day. During production, Sarah began the interview process for what was to become her next role, the monstrous villainess Ursa in the twoSuperman movies, to be shot concurrently. Despite fierce competition from 600 others, Sarah was cast and began a 3 year process of making both movies, an extraordinary feat of film-making that resulted in box office records, Academy Awards, reshooting much of the second film and then a World Tour as the sole cast member to promote the movie.
Despite massive success with Superman II, Sarah found herself soon needing to evaluate her career and decided to go to America for 3 months to try her luck. As luck would have it, 3 months soon turned into a Hollywood career that still endures to this day. On the day she was due to leave America, the actress received a call to say that she was being cast in the night-time soap, Falcon Crest.
...
During the 1980s, Sarah was to be found in many of the decade's hit shows and movies, forging a strong career, albeit unintentionally, in the sci-fi genre. Keen to break out of the "Sarah Douglas type" roles that she was being offered by studios, Sarah entered the 1990s with a brilliant performance as Gala in Dali (1991), the real-life wife of Salvador Dali, co-starring Lorenzo Quinn, acclaimed sculptor and acting son of screen icon Anthony Quinn. Expanding on her range, Sarah chose to appear in many more character pieces rather than the bigger budget movies she was offered and discovered a love for voice work in many animated projects, work she continues to do in 2013.
Throughout the first decade of this century, Sarah has repeatedly appeared on the UK stage and tv, earning critical praise for her performances on the Open Air Shakespeare Tour and, more recently, in 2012 in The Hallowe'en Sessions. Back in 2010, SyFy cast Sarah as The Red Queen in Witchville, directed by rising-star Pearry Teo and co-starring Twilight actress MyAnna Buring, with the actress spending a few weeks working in China, where the film was shot. Whilst here, she reaffirmed a passion for her writing and so began her regular blogs that she shares with her fans at her webpage www.sarah-douglas.com . In 2011, the actress furthered her comedic talents by appearing alongside former V co-star Robert Englund in 2012's Strippers Vs Werewolves. Spending much of 2012 working onGreen Lantern, Doctor Who audio stories for Big Finish Productions and being in much-demand on the convention circuit, 2013 has found Sarah equally busy recording on productions of Dorian Gray, recently wrapping up the L.A production on next year's Displacement, a film by Kenneth Mader and working extensively with Disney's audio department.
...
In addition, Sarah is often to be found making guest appearances world-wide at conventions, something the actress feels is "a must" so she can remain connected to her fans.

Actress
Sarah Douglas has always been an actress, first and foremost, and relishes the opportunity to practice her craft in various forms within the media. Whether she appears on stage, film, television or in voice-work, the chance to frequently evolve and try new things is something that Sarah enthusiastically tackles within her lengthy professional career. "As an actor, it is my natural desire to communicate.. she proclaims and so in addition to her acting profession, Sarah can also be found getting up close and personal with her audiences and fans by entertaining on both sides of the Atlantic with public appearances and presenting talks that take a light hearted look at her own career. Her talks on the importance of effective communications are motivational as well as entertaining and have on occasion been utilized by drama students and workshops, eager to follow in to the profession.
As an actress, Sarah's career began at the tender age of nine on stage as The First Fairy in A Midsummer's Nights Dream, performed in Stratford Upon Avon, England, home of the author of the play and of the aspiring young actress of which she will always consider to be her heart and home. From an early age, Sarah was surrounded by actors and actresses as her mother, Beryl, worked closely with performers of the Royal Shakespeare Company, as their physiotherapist. Growing up in the hometown of William Shakespeare was a source of continuous inspiration. As a young ingenue, Sarah joined The National Youth Theatre in her teens and attended The Rose Bruford Drama School. With an established love of the theatre, Sarah then worked in the West End show, Gomes, with Roy Dotrice, went on a National Tour of Don't Just Lie There, Say Something! alongside the late Jon Pertwee and, in more recent years, along with Emily Lloyd, has appeared on The Open Air Shakespeare Tour of both Hamlet and As You Like It, and a production of Roast Beef at London's Riverside Theatre.
...
Sarah's career soon steered her in front of the camera, and her first screen appearance was in the 1973 sci-fi film, The Final Programme, with Jon Finch.
...
Soon after this, Sarah's screen career began to flourish with appearances in top television shows, Space:1999, Return Of The Saint and Thundercloud.
Returning to the silver screen, Sarah began to establish herself in leading lady roles, starring in the highly controversial The Brute, with Julian Glover, and cult-favourite The People That Time Forgot, maintaining her reputation as the "good girl who was always a bit naughty on the side.
...
During the shooting of The People That Time Forgot, Sarah was invited to audition for a role that would ultimately take her career to new heights, and redefine her cinematic appeal.
...
Beating over 600 actresses to the part, Sarah was to find herself "flying" at the end of a wire for the next three years as the movies were extensively filmed and then reshot by two different directors, Richard Donner and Richard Lester.
...
During her stint on Falcon Crest, Sarah was luckily afforded the opportunities to work on other projects simultaneously with the hit show.
...
In more recent years, Sarah has furthered her genre credits by appearing in films for SyFy, such as Witchville for rising star director, Pearry Teo, and most recently, co-starred in the British horror-comedy film Strippers Vs Werewolves which features an acclaimed cast including Steven Berkoff and horror icon Robert Englund.
...
To add to this, Sarah has recently become part of the Doctor Who universe, lending her vocals to three online Adventure Games, a BBC exclusive that enables players to interact with the current stars of the hit tv show. In addition to these games, the actress has frequently recorded Audio Stories for Doctor Who and numerous other radio plays and commercials. Continuing her animated credits, Sarah has a recurring voice role in Green Lantern: The Animated Series which began airing early in 2012, a role that Sarah clearly relishes within a media forum that the actress has always loved to get involved in.
During the autumn of 2012, Sarah returned to London's West End, treading the boards in The Halloween Sessions, a collection of stories cleverly interwoven together by a team of writers that included Kim Newman, Stephen Volk and Anne Billson, with direction by Sean Hogan.
...
Moving on to the future, Sarah is looking forward to further career opportunities that are currently in development, with further invitations to convention appearances also being lined up.
Sarah is continually approached by publishing houses to write her autobiography, however she has chosen to use her experiences as online blogs on this site in order to become readily accessible to her audience. In addition to her writing and acting, Sarah can also be found teaching and accepting invitations to appear at speaking events. Whenever opportunity allows, Sarah tries to attend as many conventions and signings globally as possible in order to meet her fans, many especially in the sci-fi/fantasy genre, of whom she is delighted to meet and thank them personally for all of their loyal support and interest in her lengthy career.
In her personal time, Sarah visits her beautiful and beloved Stratford Upon Avon and her family. Her passion for gardening, creating a piece of England's "green and pleasant land" in the heart of the Hollywood Hills keeps this "Ursa's" high flying feet on the ground.
