Sarah Wayne Callies was born in La Grange, Illinois, and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. She is mainly famous for having took part in the hit AMC series The Walking Dead (2010) as Lori Grimes. Prior to The Walking Dead (2010), Sarah was a series regular on the FOX TV series Prison Break (2005), playing the role of Dr. Sara Tancredi.
She will come back with Prison Break, since the hit FOX series will return in 2017 with the title of Prison Break: Sequel. It will be a nine-episode sequel to FOX’s popular series. “Sequel” picks up the story some seven years after the events of the original show’s series finale. The series welcomes back original creator, Paul Scheuring, in addition to its two main characters, Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) and Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller), alongside the Dr. Sara Tancredi character played by Sarah Wayne Callies.
Sarah Wayne Callies has threatened not to join the cast of Prison Break, being the last to sign up for the filming of the new season. Sarah was hesitant in deciding to jump on board the rebirth of the Fox series because she wanted to make sure that the story was actually good.
Another big reason why the actress did not immediately say yes to the project for the plot. Fans of the series know that Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) was presumed dead in the finale of Prison Break. The idea of bringing to life the beloved character of Michael initially baffled Callies.
The actress then finally signed and has already completed filming. There will certainly be a lot of changes from the end of the show and the same Sarah Wayne Callies has wanted to assure fans that Sarah will not be immune from them.
She was also the “Officer Jane Porter” on the WB’s Tarzan (2003) and had recurring role on CBS’ Queens Supreme (2003) with Oliver Platt. Callies has also appeared on Law & Order (1999), and Dragnet (2003). She has also starred in Bittersweet (2008), Stewart Hendler’s Whisper (2007) for Universal Pictures and Barnet Bain’s independent, The Celestine Prophecy (2006).
On July 21, 2002, Callies married Josh Winterhalt, whom she met at Dartmouth College, and have a child. Don’t miss to follow Sarah Wayne Callies on Instagram.
