English actress Sarah Alexander finished her A-levels then left home at 19 for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, turning down a place at the University of Manchester for her first professional acting job.

Sarah has specialised in comedy, appearing in a number of high profile TV shows  including ARMSTRONG AND MILLER, SMITH AND JONES, COUPLING, SMACK THE PONY and WORST WEEK OF MY LIFE. She also played Dr Amanda Hunter in the hospital comedy GREEN WING.

Since 2013 Sarah has played the role of Polly Creek, the wife of Alan Davies’ title character in the BBC’s mystery crime drama JONATHAN CREEK.

Sarah’s stage credits include THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES and Lady Macbeth in ‘the Scottish play’. She returned to boards this month at the Arts Theatre in the West End in the new political satire A VIEW FROM ISLINGTON NORTH, where I met her after the opening matinee on Saturday and she signed this portrait sketch for me.
