Five Things You Didn’t Know about Sarah Gadon

Born on April 4, 1987, Sarah Gadon is a renowned actor who has featured in several top-rated films. She first earned her fame when she made an appearance in the films Cosmopolis and A Dangerous Method.

Sarah was born in Ontario. Her mother was a teacher while her father was a psychologist. Her older brother is called James and one thing you might never have noted about her is that she has both Italian and British ancestry. Through much of her teenage, she practiced dancing and she was a student at Ballet School of Canada. She also attended performing arts classes at Claude Watson School. By 2014, Sarah had completed a degree course at the University of Toronto (Inns College, Cinema Studies Institute).

She appeared for the first time in La Femme Nikita as Julia (1998). In the few years that followed, she appeared in different episodes in TV series. It is through the passion and the great input she infused into her career that she has managed to become the successful actor she is today.

Of her family name and mixed ancestry

As mentioned earlier, Sarah shares both Italian and British ancestry. Her paternal grandfather held a Canadian-French descent. The family name they currently use was initially Gaudon, which is drawn from French. The family of her mother is Italian and has roots in Abruzzo, so she can confidently claim she enjoys both British and Canadian ancestry.
