Sarah grew up in Honolulu, Hawaii, where she moved when she was one year old since both of her parents worked as professors at the University of Hawaii, Manoa. Callies showed an interest in acting while she was still a child, and so took part in many school plays. After high school, she enrolled at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, and then continued her education at Denver’s National Theater Conservatory, obtaining a Master of Fine Arts degree in 2002. A year later she moved to New York and started building her acting career. The beginning was hard as her first roles were in the CBS’ short-lived show “Queens Supreme” and TV series “Tarzan”, which was unfortunately also cancelled after only eight episodes. Still, her net worth was on the move.

However, this didn’t discourage Sarah, as she continued having guest appearances in different television series such as “Law&Order: Special Victims Unit”(1999-), “Dragnet”(2003) and “NUMB3RS”(2005-2010). Her breakthrough role was as Sara Tancredi in Fox TV’s serial drama “Prison Break”, which she played for four years, from 2005 to 2009. In 2010 Callies was cast as Lori Grimes, her biggest role so far, in the horror-drama series “The Walking Dead”. The show is also established as a comic book series, and Sarah eventually convinced the writers to kill her characters so as not to separate from the comic book version. Since the show was very well reviewed and the best rated in cable TV history, this positively influenced Sarah’s net worth as well.

Apart from her television roles, Callies has also starred in several films, including “Whisper”(2007) and an independent film “The Celestine Prophecy”(2006). Other notable film roles include “Prison break: The Final Break” (2009), “Faces In The Crowd” (2011) and “Black November”(2012). Sarah also showed her writing talent when her first screenplay, an adaptation of the children’s book “Elena’s Serenade”, was chosen to be filmed by a French production company in August 2010. Some of her latest activity includes roles in the 2014 disaster film “Into The Storm”, and supernatural horror film “Pay The Ghost” (2015), in which she appears beside Nicolas Cage.

Regarding her personal life, Callies has been married to Josh Winterhalt since July 2002. In 2007 the couple became parents when Sarah gave birth to daughter Keala. Thanks to her stunning appearance, Sarah was voted one of “The Hottest Women of Fall TV” by Maxim magazine in 2008.
