Mini Bio (1)

Sarah Gadon was born in a quiet residential area in Toronto, Ontario, to a teacher mother and a psychologist father. She grew up with the support and encouragement of her parents and older brother, James, and with this was inspired to go headlong into acting and dance alike. Sarah spent much of her adolescence training as a performer as a Junior Associate at the National Ballet School of Canada and as a student at the Claude Watson School for the Performing Arts. She also studied cinema at the prestigious University of Toronto.

She is known for her roles in the films A Dangerous Method (2011), Antiviral (2012), Enemy (2013), and Indignation (2016), and the mini-series 11.22.63 (2016).

Personal Quotes (2)

[At the Cannes Film Festival, 2012] I've been turning into a pumpkin at midnight. I haven't wandered onto anyone's yacht.
My mom has such a great background in film. When I was growing up, she would always tell me I had to watch movies with Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. My Italian grandparents would say I had to watch The Bicycle Thief. The Italian roots in my family are definitely part of the reason why I love Italian film. My British grandparents are film buffs too. They'd say I had to watch Saturday Night and Sunday Morning.
