A few years before playing "Snow White," Sarah Patterson portrayed another fairy tale heroine: "Rosaleen" (a re-imagining of "Little Red Riding Hood") in the Neil Jordan fantasy-horror film The Company of Wolves (1984). Perhaps not by coincidence, that movie was also released by Cannon Films. See more »

Diana Rigg, is outstanding, Nicola Stapleton as young Snow white is...young Snow White..,and Sarah Patterson is the epitome of Snow White.Sarah Patterson is such a wonderful surprise...I couldn't have anticipated a truer character. It is no wonder the prince fell in love immediately. They all are talented actors, but I saw the characters, not actors.
