Sarah Lancaster is an American actress best known for her television roles as Madison Kellner in Everwood (2003-2005), as Marjorie Seaver in What About Brian (2006-2007), and as Ellie Bartowski in Chuck, from 2007-2012.
She previously co-starred as the beautiful and ambitious blackjack dealer Veronica Harold, on the one-hour drama series Dr. Vegas, with Rob Lowe and Joe Pantoliano.
Lancaster had a memorable arc as Lisa, the attractive gift shop girl and love interest for Zach Braff's character, on the comedy Scrubs. In addition, she had a recurring role on David E. Kelley's Boston Public, where she played a snooty high school student running for prom queen.
In addition, Lancaster has guest-starred on such hit television series as CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Six Feet Under, That '70s Show, 7th Heaven and Dawson's Creek.
On the big screen, Lancaster played a love interest to Leonardo DiCaprio's character in Catch Me If You Can.
She was born in Overland Park, Kansas, where she grew up with her younger brother, Daniel. Her mother, Barbara, was a homemaker, and her father, Michael, was in real estate. It was his job that led the family to Mission Viejo, California when Sarah was 10 years old.
Soon after the move to Southern California, Lancaster began taking acting classes and immediately landed a talent agent. Following a few months of commuting from Orange County to Los Angeles for auditions, she secured her first professional series regular role, starring as Rachel on Saved by the Bell: The New Class.
From the time Lancaster was in the eighth grade, she was tutored on set. After she wrapped production on the series, Lancaster, who had been taking college courses at University of California at Irvine to expedite her high school graduation, made the official move to Los Angeles to further pursue her acting career.
She currently resides in Los Angeles with her two cats. Her interests include art, reading, ballet, working out (especially Pilates) and traveling.
