SARAH MEGAN THOMAS has made a name for herself in the entertainment industry as one of the brightest and most determined in all fields. As an actress, producer, and writer, she has a mission to tell stories about strong and complex women. Her talents touch all aspects of the projects she undertakes.
Her latest venture is the groundbreaking film EQUITY, in which she developed the story, produced, and starred opposite Anna Gunn. EQUITY is a first of its kind; a female driven Wall Street thriller. The film premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, was immediately sold to Sony Pictures Classics, and will be released theatrically on July 29th. The Hollywood Reporter reviewed Sarah’s performance as “subtle, but gutsy,” reflecting everything that women on Wall Street work towards on a daily basis.
Sarah also starred opposite James Van Der Beek in the film BACKWARDS, a drama about romance in the competitive world of professional rowing. She wrote and produced BACKWARDS. Sarah has been interviewed on many talk shows including The Today Show.
A graduate of Williams College, Sarah trained at both RADA and Drama Studio London. On stage, Sarah has starred in various off-Broadway productions including the whimsical gender-bending Love’s Labour’s Lost, and the New York premiere production of Summit Conference. Summit Conference was extended twice due to popular demand.
Sarah is an advocate for charitable causes, most notably Minding Your Mind, a charity that educates children in school about mental health problems to relieve the stigma. She’s an accomplished athlete in her personal life, enjoying nearly all sports from basketball to pilates, and she has even climbed to the top of Mt. Rainer in Washington.
Sarah currently resides in downtown New York City with her husband and her son.
