With a versatile career spanning film, television, theatre and voice, Vancouver-based actress Sarah Edmondson continues to explore and cultivate a path into the creative unknown.
On the independent feature film front, Sarah can be seen in Blaine Thurier’s critically acclaimed A Gun to the Head, which premiered at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival. In the movie, Sarah steps into the role of Karen, a psychopathic criminal groupie with a taste for torture. A Gun to the Head comes on the heels of Sarah’s Leo Award-nominated comic roles in Awkward, which screened at The Just For Laughs International Comedy Festival, and Sparklelite Motel, in which Sarah plays a thwarted newlywed.
On television, fans of Ellen Byerrum’s Crimes of Fashion books can catch Sarah as Brooke Barton in Lifetime’s adaptation of Killer Hair and Hostile Makeover. Sarah’s performance has been praised in the LA Times as “sassy and serious,” with reviewer Robert Lloyd going on to say, “One scene, in which (Maggie) Lawson and Sarah Edmondson, an attorney, interrogate the FBI agent who means to interrogate them, is especially deft.”
As well, Sarah has a recurring role on USA’s Psych as Shawn’s crazy ex-girlfriend Gina. And she can also be seen as Ava, a sassy rock n’ roll bartender in LMN’s The Stranger.
On the voiceover side of her career, Sarah can be heard in over a hundred radio spots and voiced the role of The Rose in The Little Prince, Sydney Gardner in Max Steel, and Thea on the popular cartoon Geronimo Stilton. The series centres around a a family of crime-solving mice, a change of pace from Sarah’s other animation series, Transformers Cybertron and Class of the Titans. In 2017, you will hear her voice characters in new seasons of Dinotrux and My Little Pony.
