Actress Sarah Jillian Relishes Expressing Her Dramatic Side and Her Sense of Humor
Sarah Jillian is a chameleon of an artist who has morphed from actress to graphic painter to professional clown to children’s book author, and now back to full-time working actress. Recently she appeared in two feature films, and now currently has been cast in a television series called The Old City, created by and produced by Diane Crow.
When did you decide that you wanted to become an actor/actress?
It was at a very early age. I was enrolled in acting school at the age of 6, with a very strict acting teacher from England named Josephine Barrington.
What attracted you to acting?
I was attracted to acting because I have a dramatic, emotional side and a humorous side, and both were able to be expressed through acting, which gives me a sense of happiness and creative fulfillment. I enjoy having other people experience laughter, and acting has given me the opportunity to make people laugh.
Who are your biggest influences?
I was influenced by early Charlie Chaplin movies. I was them since my grandma would take me to the afternoon matinee at the early age of 6. I also loved Ginger Rogers very much, because of her gracious dancing and singing. I loved Shirley MacLaine movies and her sense of humor, as well as Lucille Ball and her wonderful, humorous antics.
What is your main strength as an actor?
I think my strengths are my creativity and my willingness to express myself without limitations.

How difficult is it to establish yourself in the film industry?
It’s difficult only if it is not natural for you.
What's your dream, your ultimate goal? Do you feel like you're on the path to this goal, or do you feel as if you already achieved that dream?
I always think big, big, so my dreams are big. I would love to one day win a Golden Globe, a Tony Award, an Oscar– or all of them.
What is your message to all your fans?
I think that if being creative in the acting business is where your heart is leading you, stick with it, because you will feel fulfilled. Patience is key. Rome wasn’t built overnight. Stay faithful to your dreams. Stay focused, and eventually your dreams will come true.
